    1. 1
      Cut the courgettes into 1/2" thick slices.
    2. 2
      Cook them in simmering salted water for 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      During this time, take the pips out of the olives, and chop them up with the onions, garlic, mint, basil and parsley.
    4. 4
      Drain the courgettes as soon as they are soft and mashable.
    5. 5
      Blend the herb/onion mixture with the courgettes.
    6. 6
      Let cool. When it's cool, whizz it up in a processor, or press it through a food mill.
    7. 7
      Add the fresh lemon juice and the thyme.
    8. 8
      Salt and pepper this, according to your own taste, but making sure there is enough of this seasoning to bring out the flavor of the food.
    9. 9
      At the last minute, add the liquid creme fraiche, using a whisk to blend and get the right consistency (spreadable - dippable).
    10. 10
      Keep this cool and serve with toast fingers or sliced French bread.

      Oooh, delicious. Thanks! Lovely and olivey. A posh way to use up some of the mountain of courgettes I have this year =) I used soft white cheese in place of creme fraiche, as it was what I had.

      Superb! I made this with mixed courgettes - yellow and green, and also added half a red pepper. I increased the garlic slightly and used lots of fresh mint form the garden!
