    I haven't made this.. YET but thought I'd share a recipe to give us some inspo for lunch/dinner this week. Seems pretty simple, quick and easy if you're in a rush!

    4 medium organic courgettes

    Organic olive oil

    1 red organic onion

    ½ a bunch of fresh thyme

    1 × 230g jar of roasted red peppers

    550g organic cherry tomatoes

    2 cloves of garlic

    1 × 400g tin of organic chickpeas,

    or 250g home-cooked organic chickpeas

    (personally I won't be including these in my dish)
    (see pages 241–5)

    1 unwaxed organic lemon

    Grate the courgettes then scatter evenly on a baking tray, season with salt

    and pepper, drizzle with a little oil and place under the grill to cook and char

    for about 20 minutes, turning every couple of minutes.

    Meanwhile, put a frying pan on a medium heat. Thinly slice the red onion

    and add it to the pan with a splash of olive oil and the thyme leaves. Cook

    for 5 minutes, until soft and sweet.

    Finely chop the red peppers and tomatoes and fnely slice the garlic. Once

    the onions are browned, add them to the tray of courgettes with the peppers,

    tomatoes and garlic and continue to cook and brown, turning every 5 minutes,

    for a further 10–15 minutes.

    Put the frying pan back on a high heat and add a little more olive oil. Add

    the chickpeas, a good pinch of salt and pepper and the zest of the lemon and

    cook until the chickpeas are crisped around the edges. This will take about

    10 minutes, and you’ll need to keep tossing the chickpeas in the pan.

    Once the courgette mixture is softened and sweet, and charred in places,

    scatter over the chickpeas. Serve with some lemon-dressed green leaves.
