This is the last week for regularly scheduled Alphabe-thursdays classes.
Can you believe it took me all week to think this up?? Yes I am a little concerned about myself too. Zucchini is the ultimate in summer foods. It brings to mind abundance and plenty and deliciousness. Zucchini is a very versatile and frugal veggie - you can bake, boil, broil, saute', bread it and eat it raw. It is great in a stir-fry and is unbelievable in meatloaf. I always keep some shredded in the freezer.
I am going to share my mom's recipe and then some links to great zucchini recipes.
2 or 3 Zucchini sliced thin
1 onion, sliced
1/2 stick of butter
1 large can of oven roasted tomatoes
Salt and Pepper
(I add 2 garlic cloves smashed to the pot when the onions are cooking)
Parboil zucchini (boil in large pot for 5 minutes and drain- saving 1 cup of water)
Heat butter in large skillet add onion and begin to cook, when soft add zucchini and one cup of water from pan and tomatoes. Salt and pepper to taste - you can always add more at the end. Turn heat down to simmer and let cook for at least a half an hour.
