DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the courgettes into 1/2" thick slices.
  • Cook them in simmering salted water for 15 minutes.
  • During this time, take the pips out of the olives, and chop them up with the onions, garlic, mint, basil and parsley.
  • Drain the courgettes as soon as they are soft and mashable.
  • Blend the herb/onion mixture with the courgettes.
  • Let cool. When it's cool, whizz it up in a processor, or press it through a food mill.
  • Add the fresh lemon juice and the thyme.
  • 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.
  • At the last minute, add the liquid creme fraiche, using a whisk to blend and get the right consistency (spreadable - dippable).
  • Keep this cool and serve with toast fingers or sliced French bread.
