Cold zucchini stew for hot summer days
Or for cold winter days, depending on how you serve it, of course. If you want it hot, it's ideal in winter, and if you want it cold, have it in summer!
Be warned that in winter zucchini is more expensive, since it's in season in summer.
Yesterday I received these beautiful zucchini, and I decided to cook them. I really like zucchini food, more than any other way of preparing zucchini. These are brought from the countryside and are grown in a bio way, as people here don't like tasteless food ingredients.
The recipe is super easy and you don't need many things at all. Additionally, many other recipes follow a similar pattern, so if you know one recipe, you can make several types of foods.
- 4 medium sized zucchini
- some salt - about a teaspoon
- some oil - 2 or 3 table spoons?
- some condiments - I used black pepper
- some tomato sauce
- some all purpose flour
- Pour the oil in a pot and turn on the fire or heat.
- Dice the zucchini and drop them in the pot.
- Sprinkle with salt and set to cook with a lid covering them.
- Mix from time to time with a wooden spoon or spatula.
- You have about an hour till they're done cooking.
- At the end, you will want to sprinkle your condiments, add the tomato sauce, and some all purpose flour if you find it the food liquid.
- You might want to continue cooking for some 10 minutes more at this point, or turn off the heat and let it sit covered for the same amount of time.
- Serve in a dish, either hot or cold, however you prefer!
- You can cook this with chopped onion if you like. You'll have to saute the onion a little before adding the zucchini. Some people say it tastes better, but I disagree.
- You don't need to add any water to this food because the zucchini will provide plenty.
I hope you'll like it if you decide to try it out!
