Zucchini with Scallions and MintTags: dinner, side dish, vegetable, vegetarian
A tasty recipe to use up all the squash for your garden.
I saw this on Lidia Bastianich’s cooking program on PBS. It’s surprisingly delicious. (You should know, though, that boiling vinegar will leave a lingering, though not completely unpleasant odor.)
½ c white wine vinegar
3 medium green zucchini, sliced
6 scallions, cut into 1″ pieces
fresh mint leaves, chopped
In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar to a boil, and reduce by half. In large frying pan, sauté the scallions in a little hot oil. Add the zucchini, and allow it to brown on both sides. Add the reduced vinegar and toss to coat each slice. Remove from heat, and add chopped mint leaves. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature.
