Here in France the shops are full of courgettes (or zucchini to you perhaps) at the moment. I don’t much like them as a vegetable but spotted a likely looking recipe in Nigella’s ‘How To Be A Domestic Goddess’ book and, undeterred by my recent tasty yet unattractive chocolate loaf cake, decided to give the stand mixer another whirl.
The early signs were encouraging.
We already had a jar of home made lime curd in the cupboard for the filling and a whole net of limes in a bowl seeking a purpose.
I just had to nip down to the shop for some cream cheese and there you go.
The recipe has you sprinkle the top with pistachios – which makes it even more green – but I stuck with the zest of a lime. Because, as I’ve mentioned before, I’m not keen on sweet things.
Have a great weekend.
