Having about eight million zucchinis on hand at any given time (yes, I brought this upon myself by planting 3 zucchini plants), I am constantly trying to come up with new and exciting recipes to throw them into. Luckily, zucchinis are a versitile vegetable that can be made up a zillion ways. Baked, fried, raw, in baked goods, stir-fried, you name it.
Friday night I made a garden grill stirfry, and it went a little like this:
ZUCCHINI OF FIRE
2 good sized zucchini, sliced into 1/4″ slices
12 cherry tomatoes, whole
some basil leaves
one fresh jalapeno, seeded and sliced into strips
one fresh cherry bomb pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
Throw all the vegetables in a bowl, coat with olive oil & Tabasco, toss, and then add salt, pepper, AB’s chili powder, and the garlic powder. Hooooo-weeeee that’s hot! Toss to coat evenly. Throw mixture into a hot grill wok over high heat, stir often until zucchini are done to your liking.
The greatest thing about this recipe was that all of the fresh ingredients were home-grown! I was pretty proud of myself for that.
