How cute are these round courgettes?? This was a kind of healthy veggie moussaka.. which turned out scrumptious… I layered the inside of the courgettes with a delicious slow-cooked lentil ragu, sliced roasted potatoes, and a creamy béchamel.
The ragu was made with red lentils and tons of veggies… I used onions, garlic, carrots, and celery, then chopped tomatoes, fresh thyme, oregano, and bay leaves, all sautéed together and simmered with stock for about an hour the flavours.
The béchamel is a healthier version made with olive oil and oat milk, but you could make a standard béchamel using butter and whole milk if you prefer.
Can’t get round courgettes and don’t want the faff of hollowing them out and stuffing them? Just slice the courgettes, grill them and layer them into your dish with the ragu and potatoes. I just fell in love with these beauties and wanted to do something different.
