Rating: 4.7 stars based on 220 reviews


  • A good loaf of bread
  • 500g courgettes
  • 1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 pinch dried oregano
  • 500g of the very best mature cheddar you can lay your mitts on
  • chilli flakes and fresh basil – optional


  • To prepare your courgette filling, wash and slice your courgettes. In a medium saucepan add a good amount of olive oil, say 4 tablespoons. Chop the garlic and add this along with the courgettes, coriander and oregano to the pan and cook on a medium heat for 15 minutes, seasoning well and stirring often. Then turn down the heat and continue to cook, stirring as and when, until a completely cooked out pulp is formed. This can then be set aside and allowed to cool.
  • Thats the hard bit done! Make a toasty with this and cheese in even amounts, you can add fresh basil leaves and chilli flakes as well if you like.
