HOW TO MAKE OUR CHAR-COOKED COURGETTE AND PEPPER BRUSCHETTA RECIPE

Follow this simple 4-step char-cooked courgette and pepper recipe for a light but satisfying summertime bite!

  1. Preheat a char-grill pan or the grill.
  2. Mix together the Lyle's Black Treacle, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. Lightly brush the slices of bread with this mixture, then char-grill or grill the bread on both sides.
  3. Brush the courgette slices with the glaze and char-grill or grill them until tender (about 1 minute per side). Arrange them on the slices of bread with torn-up strips of roasted pepper.
  4. Finish off with shaves of Parmesan cheese, a little black pepper and some basil leaves or parsley sprigs. Drizzle with the remaining glaze, then serve.

CHEF'S TIP

  • For an extra “yum” factor, char-grill or grill 4 small bunches of cherry tomatoes on the vine and serve them on top of the bruschetta, if you like.
  • Don’t be afraid to get creative with your side servings. There are many different types of cheese that go well with this recipe – with one of the most popular being halloumi.
