Pan Fried Courgettes with Onion, Garlic and Parmesan

This is probably my favourite way of eating courgettes

Ingredients 2 1/2 tablespoons avocado oil 3-4 courgettes cut into 1/2 cm rings

1 medium onion thinly sliced 2 garlic cloves finely chopped Zest of 1 medium lemon Juice of half the lemon  50g grated Parmesan Salt & Pepper to taste


Instructions Heat the avocado oil in a frying pan and add the onions. Once onions start to soften add the courgettes. Sprinkle over the garlic and lemon zest and squeeze over the lemon juice and allow the courgettes to start to cook on the side touching the pan. Without crushing the courgette slices, turn them over so that they brown on both sides. Shake the pan to keep the courgettes moving so that they don't catch or burn. As the courgettes start to soften (a couple of minutes), sprinkle half of Parmesan shaking the pan again to spread it throughout the courgettes. Add salt and pepper to taste.  The courgettes should cook for no longer than about 5 minutes. They should be soft but retain their shape. They shouldn't be mushy.  Top the courgettes and onions with the last of the Parmesan and serve. Serves 4 as side dishes
