Pre-heat oven to 160°
Place the 1st 7 prepared ingredients into the baking tray and mix well
Squeeze the lemon juice over the mix, then throw the lemon half into the tray as well – why not?
Cover and place in the oven for 45-60 minutes, stirring part way through
When cooked, the courgettes should be meltingly soft and unctuous (such a descriptive word!)
Remove the lemon and adjust seasoning to taste
I find this is best left to cool for a while, then served with mint sprinkled on top and extra lemon if you wish
Alternatively, store in the fridge to use later in wraps or quesadillas
Finally, given the amount of oil just used, avoid the bathroom scales for a while...
