In order not to waste the cores of the koosa (white courgettes) from either the ablama or koosa dishes, making treeda (or when saying it, I say treedi) is a delicious starter, which is so simple yet so tasty..
- In a small pot, add the core of the koosa and water, then bring to a boil.
- Once this occurs, add the remaining ingredients, except the dried mint, and mix together over medium heat for a further 3-5 mins
- Taste to check for seasoning (may need more salt or lemon juice), then place in a small serving bowl. Top with drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of dried mint
Delicious, quick, yummy and a great way to avoid wastage of food! Enjoy :)
