Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • Watch this recipe being prepared on Cooking with Zucchini: http://www.z.umn.edu/33mw.
  • Try this dish in the summer when zucchini and tomatoes are plentiful!
  • Like it spicy? Try adding a jalapeño pepper or cayenne pepper.
  • Use what you have. Substitute different fresh veggies like green beans or summer squash, or use canned tomatoes.
  • Cook once, eat twice! Make a double batch and refrigerate the leftovers. Top chopped lettuce with 1 cup of the mixture, or eat it as a filling for a sandwich or tortilla wrap.
