I’m a little bit obsessed with zucchini. A few summers ago I grew a bumper crop and had to come up with a million ways to eat it. This became my favorite: grated, mixed with chopped garlic, maybe a bit of chopped onion, some basil and oregano, and sautéed in olive oil until tender. Then spread the resulting mixture on pizza or garlic bread, or add it to rice, or eat it with a spoon…see how crazy I am about this?

Last week I needed to make a quick dinner and happened to have a couple tiny zucchinis in my fridge. I prepared one of them as above, grated with some garlic, and while it was cooking I put a whole wheat tortilla on my griddle, added a bit of mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and a sprinkle of oregano, and let the cheese melt. When the zucchini was tender, I spread some of it over half of the tortilla, folded the other half over, and crisped both sides. (One zucchini is enough for two tortillas…I was good and I even shared!) I served it with pizza sauce, but pasta sauce or cheese sauce or some other favorite would be great, too. Or no sauce at all. It was like a health food “hot pocket.” Delish!

Do you like zucchini? What’s your favorite way to eat it?
