Basil Zucchini

School has been trying hard to steal my life. Lately I’ve been so tired that I don’t want to cook or blog. That is a sad day. I feel terrible that I’ve posted nothing here for so long. This weekend I have a few different recipes that I will type up so the week will have some noms in it. Today’s recipe is an easy but super tasty recipe for abundance of zucchini that is out there.

Basil Zucchini

3 zucchini diced

1 yellow bell pepper (or whatever color you fancy)

1/2 med yellow onion

3 tbsp of olive oil

a handful of basil ~2 large sprigs

salt and pepper to taste

Dice some the onion and pepper. Saute on medium high heat in olive oil until beginning to get tender.

Add the cubed zucchini and toss a few times to coat in olive oil.

Cook the Zucchini on medium high heat until almost tender. About 5 minutes. Mince some basil to add to the zucchini at the last moment before serving. Don’t cook the basil, just toss the herb in the dish at the last minute to draw out the flavors.

Then smell a fire and realize you lit your stove on fire from grease  not properly cleaned up. Calmly remove your zucchini so as not to ruin your vegetables or pan. Walk to the refrigerator and grab some baking soda. Pour copious amounts on burner until fire is extinguished. Proceed with dinner like nothing happened.

Serve with your choice of protein. T had mussels, ribs, and salmon.There will soon be a post about seafood that T cooked for this meal. Our roommate said it was good and T liked it so I will have to assume it was tasty water food. As for the vegetables, they are awesome and fresh. The simple ingredients really bring out the flavor of the fresh summer vegetable.

Sorry I’ve been gone for so long. I hope a short story about vegetables and fire will sate you while I get my hiney in gear and stock up on some posts!
