Ingredients

  • 1 Jumbo courgette (at least 3" diameter, or use 2 medium sized), cut in to circles
  • 10 tbsp Chopped tomatoes (canned)
  • 40 g Mature cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp Dried oregano
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 15 Basil leaves, finely chopped

Instructions

  • Put the courgette slices on a baking tray and spray with a little oil. Put them under the grill for 2 minutes each side.
  • Take them out of the grill and add one tbsp of chopped tomatoes to each circle.
  • Sprinkle over the garlic and oregano.
  • Add the cheese.
  • Sprinkle the basil on top.
  • Put them back under the grill for 3 minutes, until the cheese bubbles.

Notes

  • If you don't like courgette, then you can use aubergine (eggplant), tomatoes or portobello mushrooms as the base instead.
  • These little bites can't handle too many toppings due to their size, but some finely chopped onions, spinach or chorizo under the cheese works well.
  • We used cheddar cheese, but try some parmesan or goats cheese instead.
  • Serve them with homemade potato wedges for a filling meal.
