Char Grilled Zucchini, Peas and Mint

I love this it just tastes like summer. Fresh, sweet and fantastic with just about anything.


  • Zucchinis. I grow these every year and have both yellow and green to add a bit of colour.
  • Peas. If you have fresh peas that’s brilliant, but snap frozen baby peas work almost as well.
  • A big bunch of fresh mint.
  • Tuscan Downs Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  • Salt & black pepper.


Heat a BBQ or griddle pan up to a high heat. Whilst it’s heating, slice up the zucchini on an angle.

Place then on the bars and flip over when they have developed char marks. When done on both sides set aside.

Next get a large frypan and cover the bottom with a thin layer of Tuscan Downs Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Place on a low heat until the oil runs freely around the pan. Drop in the zucchini and peas and warm through. Then add finely chopped mint and drop onto a serving plate. Yum!
