  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds mixed with 4 Tablespoons water
  • a cup or so of panko breadcrumbs
  • Fresh herbs such as parsley - approx 1 tablespoon
  • mild chilli powder – half tsp
  • finely chopped macadamia or almonds (totally optional but adds a nice crunch)
  • salt & pepper-to taste
  • 1 Tbs Olive Oil
  1. Preheat your oven to Gas Mark 7/ 220C
  2. Mix the panko breadcrumbs, chilli powder, herbs, nuts and salt and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Dip the courgette batons into the hemp seed mix
  4. Then coat them in the breadcrumbs.
  5. Cook them on a tray in the oven that has had a little oil slicked on to prevent sticking, flipping once to ensure a crispy finish on all sides.
  6. Serve with the Alioli and a salad and lovely fresh Sauv Blanc.
