I wasn’t planning on posting this–what’s there to say about a simple vegetable side dish? After transcendant one bite, I grabbed my camera. As it turns out, there is–in fact–nothing to say, because words are inadequate. The basic idea, one serving: heat some olive oil over medium-high heat, throw in a sliced zucchini and a generous pinch of kosher salt, and sautee until spotty brown (~8 min). Then add a clove of garlic, minced, to the center of the pan, and let it hang out there until the kitchen smells heavenly (~1-2 min). Take it off the heat, stir in some parsley, and enjoy in respectful silence.
Now I just need to decide what to do with the first of my tomatoes. Aren’t they pretty? I’m thinking insalata caprese, if I can talk myself into shelling out for fresh mozzerella.
