Nutrition: per serving


  • 1 courgette (about 175g grated weight)
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1 roasted red pepper from a jar, drained and finely chopped
  • 100g parmesan, finely grated
  • few rosemary sprigs, needles picked and finely chopped
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 90ml sunflower oil
  • 50-100ml whole milk


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a eight-hole muffin tin with muffin cases. Coarsely grate the courgette into a fine sieve and use clean hands to squeeze out as much liquid as possible over the sink. Tip into a bowl with the spring onions, flour, roasted red pepper, most of the cheese and the rosemary, along with lots of black pepper and a pinch of salt.

  • STEP 2

    Crack the eggs into a jug, pour in the oil and top up with enough milk to make 300ml. Beat together, then pour into the courgette mixture and mix to a smooth batter. Divide between the cases, top with the remaining cheese and bake for 25-30 mins until risen, firm and golden brown on top. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack. Will keep for up to three days in an airtight container in the fridge.
