Result: A Vegetarian Feast
My friend and fellow yogi, Casey, gave me a huge round zucchini yesterday from her CSA. She mentioned that not only did she get more food than she can eat this week, but that she was challenged to use some of the produce. I hear this often from folks that go with CSA. I too can sometimes stare in marvel at a crazy piece of produce that i can't identify, but that's part of the fun: figuring out what it is and how to make it something spectacular.
|sliced finer than 1/8 inch|
I had picked up some organic corn the day prior at the co-op down the road. Cut from the cob and mixed with chopped tomato, red onion, cilantro, black beans, cumin, EVOO, and sea salt, it made a great stuffing for my now 'zuchini taco shells'.
|i used a spring-form pan to form the corn salad stack|
|tapatio was great on this|
Andy was making his specialty - Guacamole. He used a trader joes kit and added some cilantro from our garden.
There were still more slices left after all was said and done. These became the easiest dish ever, zuchini carpaccio. Lay out the slices, drizzle with EVOO, some coarse sea salt, and fresh sliced basil from the garden.
|so simple - so good.|
|incredibly fresh and delicous veggie feast!!!|
