This is a quick recipe I threw together one day trying to use up a never ending supply of zucchini from our garden. It is quick to “toss” together, looks great and has turned out to be one of our favorite summer side dishes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove top and tail from zucchini and slice into thin rounds. Place into a mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients excluding the breadcrumb mixture and mix well with your hands. Pour the zucchini mixture into an oven-proof casserole dish large enough to hold everything, cover, and bake for about 30 minutes or until the zucchini are fork tender.
While the zucchini are baking, place the bread cubes in a food processor and pulse until they become coarse crumbs. Add the chile pepper, lemon, cheese, salt and pepper and pulse until well mixed but still coarse. Add the parsley and olive oil and pulse once more just until the parsley is chopped.
Uncover the zucchini and sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top. Return the casserole to the oven without a cover and bake an additional 15 minutes or until the top is crisp and brown. Serve.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Cassava, also known as yuca, was one of my discoveries when visiting the Mexican vendors at my local flea market. Although the root vegetable is not indigenous to Mexico I seasoned this dish with some popular Mexican seasonings, then roasted it and enjoyed it (along with a couple of cold Dos Equis)!
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
The best stuffed portabellos ever, and they are gluten-free and high in protein using almond meal instead of bread crumbs!
