Char-Cooked Courgette and Pepper Bruschetta

Simple and oh-so tasty! Perfect for a light lunch or a supper starter.

Preparation 10 mins

Cooking 10 mins

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 tbsp Lyle’s Black Treacle
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 garlic clove, crushed
4 thick slices of sourdough or rustic-style bread
2 large courgettes, sliced diagonally
200g roasted peppers (from a jar), drained
Few shaves of Parmesan cheese
Freshly ground black pepper
Basil or parsley sprigs, to garnish

Directions 

1. Preheat a char-grill pan or the grill.

2. Mix together the Lyle’s Black Treacle, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. Lightly brush the slices of bread with this mixture, then char-grill or grill the bread on both sides.

3. Brush the courgette slices with the glaze and char-grill or grill them until tender (about 1 minute per side). Arrange them on the slices of bread with torn-up strips of roasted pepper.

4. Finish off with shaves of Parmesan cheese, a little black pepper and some basil leaves or parsley sprigs. Drizzle with the remaining glaze, then serve.

Cook’s tip: Char-grill or grill 4 small bunches of cherry tomatoes on the vine and serve them on top of the bruschetta, if you like.
