“This is a flexible summer dish that can be eaten as an accompaniment to grilled meat, shrimp or fish, or as a simple salad paired with hummus, raw scallions and chunks of feta. Best of all, it can be eaten just as it is, with crusty bread, for a light lunch. Serve hot, warm or cold. Serves four as an accompaniment or 2 as a main with bread or pasta.”

Directions

  1. Set a wide pan over a low heat. Once hot, add the olive oil, garlic, onion, cumin seeds and chili or cayenne and gently fry for 12 minutes or until the onion is soft and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, put the tomatoes in a large bowl. Cover with boiling water and prick each tomato with a sharp knife. Leave for a minute then drain and peel off and discard the skin. Roughly chop the tomatoes and mix into the softened onions. Season and fry briskly for about 8 minutes or until the mixture forms a thick paste.
  3. Cut the zucchini into chunks or slices. Mix into the tomatoes and fry briskly for 4 minutes or until very lightly cooked. Season to taste and stir in the parsley. Tip into a bowl and serve hot, warm or cold.
