May Simpkin
These cute courgette rolls make a great starter, nibble or beautiful canapé to impress your guests and of course, they’re also very healthy! They may look fiddly but they are in fact very easy to put together; the most time consuming part is grilling the courgette strips, which can be done easily on a griddle pan or a non-stick frying pan.

  • Season to taste with extra lemon juice, salt and pepper
  • One by one, lay out each strip and spread a thin layer of the sunflower seed paste
