One of the best things about these courgettes is that they’re speed food, and we all know the more speed food the better… right?

These Syn Free Grilled / BBQ Courgettes are the perfect side dish on any BBQ, and those not following Slimming World won’t even notice that they’re Slimming World friendly!

I cooked these on my new toy – the Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ.

I’m of the opinion that Charcoal is the only way when it comes to BBQ’s but the Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ is pretty special. It runs on gas and on charcoal.

So you get the best of both worlds, that lovely smokey flavour (without any of the effort that usually goes into starting a charcoal BBQ) and gas! Pretty neat, right?

The Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ makes cooking these Syn Free Grilled / BBQ Courgettes so easy. The courgettes don’t stick to the grill, and you get the most fantastic grill marks. Not to mention a lovely smokey flavour from the charcoal too.

All you do with the charcoal is load up the tray of the BBQ with charcoal, light the BBQ with the gas, then 15 minutes later you’re ready to go.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Grilled / BBQ Courgettes recipe.
