Fregola with courgette, citrus and basil

By Greg and Lucy Malouf

Serves 4 | Prep 15 mins | Cook 15 mins | Calories 278 (per serving)

1 litre (4 cups) vegetable stock or water

150g (1½ cups) fregola salt and freshly ground black pepper citrus oil (see right), or buy a good quality mandarin oil

50g (1⁄3 cup)

blanched hazelnuts

1 ruby grapefruit

1 orange

2 baby courgettes (zucchini), cut into tiny dice

2 spring onions (scallions), thinly sliced into rounds

10g (¼ cup) each of shredded basil leaves, shredded mint leaves and snow pea tendrils


125ml (½ cup) grapeseed oil

125ml (½ cup) good-quality olive oil finely grated zest of 2 oranges

1 bay leaf

¼ tsp coriander seed

1 For the citrus oil, combine the oils in a small saucepan. Use a microplane grater to zest the oranges over the oil, to capture any oils that are released as you grate. Add the bay leaf and the coriander seeds. Heat gently, just to blood temperature, then remove the pan from the heat. Leave to infuse for 24-48 hours, then strain and decant into a sterilized bottle or jar.

2 Bring the vegetable stock to the boil and cook the fregola for 10 minutes at a healthy simmer. When cooked it should be tender, but still have a slight bite. Tip into a sieve to drain for a few minutes, then tip into a shallow tray.

3 Season with salt and pepper and drizzle on 1 tbsp citrus oil. Toss and leave to cool. Heat a dry frying pan over a medium heat and toast the hazelnuts for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, until they are golden brown.
