–Scoop out the zucchini and cook it up with some vegetables-including zucchini– and fresh basil; add eggs, bake briefly, and then run under the broiler topped with tomatoes and cheese. Heaven.
Just what is sounds like, though you can kiss the worried-about-calories or cholesterol in the morning good-bye with this light, but filling meal:
Trout is easily available American fish (totally cleaned whole or fillets), inexpensive, simply and quickly cooked, and is a brunch delight. Just add a Bloody Mary.
Grilled Veggie Tacos with Salsa Ranch Sauce
—Fast and Addictive (Can be done in a skillet indoors).
Add a few leaves of spinach and some cheese if you like.
A quick soup that seems tiny, but tastes big; the “other squash,” is zucchini or yellow squash.
A vegan chili for vegans or carnivores made with most any vegetables on your counter, but zucchini is an easy, filling addition.
A fast vegan meal that uses up the best of late summer or early fall produce–lovely for lunch the next day. A healthy dose of crushed red pepper perks this up.
A very fast and fun soup with the sweet surprise of fresh sliced cherry tomatoes in the bottom of the bowl. A bit of basil tops it off.
I’ll add most anything to a caprese to change it up. Here’s a favorite salad with just barely sautéed or grilled slices of zucchini between the mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil you crave this time of year. Fresh green beans are the bonus.
Needs no explanation. A bit Nicoise, a bit Alyce.
Quicker than you’d think and worth every minute.
Kids will eat zucchini like this. Make them large or small, either way, they’re a great snack or addition to a plate of scrambled eggs. Not too sweet. I like them made in a great big, oven-safe coffee cup.
Just before I went on vacation in August, I posted this simple, on-going meal. Eat as is Friday night, make tacos for Saturday lunch, and slice up the leftovers for a frittata or pasta for Sunday brunch or dinner.
For nights when you’re starved, but just can’t bear to cook. Zucchini or yellow (summer) squash and onions in a skillet, add garlic, sliced chicken sausage, and cherry tomatoes. Dinner. (Doubles easily.)
Sing a new song,
