ZUCCHINI AND TOMATO MEDLEY
WOW, I cannot believe that this Zucchini and Tomato Medley recipe is 38 years old this year. However I still think that the oldies are the goodies. This recipe can be eaten as is or used as a side dish. Different vegetables can be added too, so you can give it a bit of your own individual touch. Enjoy!
1 large onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
Large pinch salt
Freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup chopped parsley
1 teaspoon chopped, fresh thyme or sage
4 large tomatoes
500 g (1 lb) green beans
500 g (1 lb) zucchini
Slice onion, crush garlic, and saute in oil in a heavy frying pan. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add chopped herbs.
Cut beans into lengths, and zucchini into chunks. Add tomatoes, beans and zucchini to pan with ¼ cup water, and simmer covered for 10 minutes or until just tender. Drain.
Add all of the ingredients into a large serving bowl or plate up individually.
For those who enjoy vegetables lightly cooked with a natural, fresh flavour, this is a dish that is good on its own, or may be served as an accompaniment to grilled chicken or meats. Topped with grated cheese, it is a meal in itself for a light lunch or supper.
