More food stuff...
The next old favorite I made was for dinner tonight. I usually make this in the summer, when the veggies are nice and fresh. It's also quick and easy, so it doesn't heat up the kitchen too much. I usually serve it with grilled burgers or chicken, and maybe some pasta. It's also fabulous with swordfish steaks.
1 zucchini, sliced
1 summer squash, sliced
1 onion, sliced in half from root to tip, then sliced into half rounds
4 oz. sliced mushrooms (I like baby Bellas, but any mushrooms are good)
2 tomatoes, diced up into large pieces
Heat the olive oil in a large fry pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook gently until soft; add the other veggies. Stir around to coat with the oil. Turn the heat to medium, cover, and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until veggies are soft. Take the lid off and add a tablespoon or so of butter.
Tonight, I added two small pieces of cod on top of the veggies, in the last 5 minutes of cooking. WOW that was good! I have also added a small handful of couscous in the past, too - this ends up with some lovely juices that absorb into the couscous nicely. Enjoy!
