Goat’s cheese mousse on a courgette “pyramid”

Courgette Pyramid

Difficulty:Easy   Time: Long

INGREDIENTS: (x 4 persons)

  • - 2 long courgettes
  • - 150g fresh, soft goat’s cheese
  • - extra virgin olive oil
  • - salt/pepper
  • - 1 organic lemon
  • - 6 baby plum tomatoes
  • - few leaves of fresh basil and mint
  • - 3 slices of sourdough bread
  • - toothpicks


  • Courgette Pyramid1. Slice the courgettes lengthwise and grill the slices in a hot, griddle non-sticky pan. When ready, dress the slices with salt, olive oil, and finely chopped mint leaves.
  • 2. In the meanwhile mix the soft goat’s cheese with a pinch of salt and pepper, as well as the basil leaves that you’ve finely chopped. Add ¼ of lemon skin (try to shave off the yellow part only), and add a few drops of the lemon juice. Whip the mix into a mousse.
  • 3. Then, cut the slices of sourdough bread in small bites and grill them in the griddle pan. On each bite spread some mousse and on top lay a rolled-up slice of courgette. In the roll fit half a plum tomato. Fix everything together with a toothpick.


  • - The goat’s cheese has to be creamy. Try to avoid a hard version of goat cheese
  • - You can substitute the plum tomato with a dried tomato in oil (found in local shops).
