Courgette butter

Courgette
I was looking for something savoury to spread on my toast when I came across this recipe for courgette butter on the Kitchn. I love it because courgettes/zucchini are almost always inexpensive and apart from a bit of grating and stirring, the recipe requires very little work: just grate your courgettes and sautée them over low heat with a pinch of salt and a few cloves of minced garlic until it all cooks down into a delicious butter. I used two large-ish courgettes, cooked them in a mixture of olive and sunflower seed oil for over an hour and got a generous cup of the spread for about €0,50. Courgettes are one of my favourite vegetables, and I love the mild buttery flavour of this spread; I really enjoyed it on top of bread and hummus.
