Yellow Courgette And Mange Tout

Bring out the buttery flavour of these delicious spring and summer vegetables with this simple recipe.


Serves 4

  • 2 yellow courgettes
  • 200g mange tout or snow peas / sugar snap peas
  • 4 new-season carrots
  • 1 medium onion
  • 30g butter
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  1. Scrub the carrots. Trim off the leaf tops. Slice the carrots into thin sticks - julienne-style.

  2. Trim the tops and bottoms of the mange tout.

  3. Wash the courgettes and then slice into 1cm thick slices, on a slight diagonal.

  4. Peel the onion. Cut in half and slice finely.

  5. Gently heat the butter and oil together in a large frying pan (the oil stops the butter from burning and spoiling the flavour).

  6. Add the carrots and the onion. Cover the pan and sauté gently for 4 minutes.

  7. Then add the courgettes. Stir well. Cover and sauté for 3 minutes.

  8. Add the mange tout. Stir well. Cover and sauté for a further 3 minutes.
