5:2 Fast Diet - Griddled Courgettes with Lemon, Mint, Puy Lentils & Cheezly

Calories: 248
Men's Extra: 10 or 20g Cheezly (25 or 50 cals)

A nice, Mediterranean-inspired dish.

Ingredients: 

  • 500g small courgettes (90 cals)
  • 15 mint leaves (1 cal)
  • 1 tsp olive oil (40 cals)
  • 30g (2 rounded tbsp) cooked puy lentils (35 cals)
  • 30g Redwood Cheezly mature white cheddar style (75 cals)
  • lemon zest (1 cal)
  • A drizzle of lemon juice, 1 tsp (5 cals)
  • 1 tsp dill – dried or finely chopped fresh (1 cal)

Method: 

1. Cut the courgettes into long, ½ cm wide slices. Mix with the oil and a pinch of salt.  

2. Heat a ridged griddle pan or non-stick frying pan until it smokes. Cook the courgette slices, turning once, until striped with dark brown on both sides. You will probably have to do this in at least two batches. Add a splash of water if it starts to stick.  

3. Transfer the courgettes to a bowl and mix with the lemon zest, juice, Cheezly, lentils and dill. Just before serving, mix through the ripped mint leaves.
