This is my default Vegetarian Dinner which I find can also be enjoyed by carnivores.


(For 4 as a main course, 6 as a starter)


- 450g (1 lb.) courgettes

- 2 fat cloves garlic

- grating of fresh nutmeg

- salt and black pepper

- 2 dggs

- 150g (5 oz.) fresh breadcrumbs

- 150g (5 oz.) feta cheese, cut into small dice (it will be crumbly )


- 1 medium onion, finely chopped

- 2 oz. sultanas

- 2 lbs tomatoes, roughly chopped

- 1 tsp. grated ginger root

- 2 eating apples peeled, cored and diced

- 6 oz. brown sugar

- 6 oz. red or white wine vinegar.


First cook the chutney:

Put all the ingredients into a large pot and bring to a gentle simmer. Let it simmer gently for 30 minutes stirring from time to time to make sure it dosn't catch on the bottom. It is reckoned to be ready when a spoon drawn through the mixture leaves a path behind.

Store this in sterile jars it should keep for a long time but once you open it use fairly quickly and keep in the fridge.


On the coarse blade of the grater grate the courgette into a bowl. Season with salt pepper and nutmeg. Beat the eggs and stir in then stir in the breadcrumbs, then add the feta dice.

Heat some oil in a pan and when hot drop in tablespoons of the mixture. Cook until brown on one side then turn over and brown on the other. Keep the cooked ones warm while you cook the remainder. You should have about 12 fritters depending on size.

Serve these hot with a spoonful of the chutney and some salad on the side.

That so many people are waiting for treatment in one of the most developed economies in the world is truly frightening. Of course you can take into account the underfunding of the health sector during the economic downturn but it still wouldn't fully explain why so ma …
