I never would have known that zucchini had a “second” flavor, had it not been for NPR. Thank you, NPR, for making me realize that zucchini, when what I would have considered to be dreadfully overcooked, is actually a glorious thing if done right. Go figure! Slow pan-roasting zucchini brings out a very nutty flavor that’s much richer than what zucchini originally has to offer. To compliment this, we’re going to serve it with toasted cashew pieces.

Serves 4

4 small zucchini, cut into quarter-inch thick rounds.

2 Tbsp butter

Salt to taste

1/4 tsp black pepper

2 large cloves garlic, minced

2 Tbsp raw cashews, slivered if possible

  • In a large (non-stick preferred) frying pan, add butter and turn to medium low.
  • When hot, add zucchini, garlic, and black pepper. Salt to taste. Toss well in butter. Cook zucchini for 3o minutes, slowly, occasionally giving the zucchini a toss.

  • Meanwhile, in a dry pan on medium high, add cashews.
  • Keep cashews moving in the pan, and when they take on a lightly toasted color, remove from heat and set aside. I pour mine into a separate ramekin so that they do not overcook in the pan.

  2. Float a lettuce leaf on the surface of fresh homemade
    soup and this will remove the fat. Choosing a book that has plenty of recipes in it will allow you to make the most
    of your meal plan. This is not your great-grandmother’s cooking methods.
