Fresh from the Garden
I don't have a garden at this time, but I soon will start my own. Recently, a coworker provided me with zucchini, summer squash, cucumber and tomatoes from her garden. She grows everything strictly organic. NO Chemicals at all! She has a very large garden. Anyway, I have eaten "organic" veggies before, but hers!?? Wow! The freshness. The size. The sweetness. I was impressed. I haven't always been a zucchini and squash eater, but now I am. I prepared them my own way. I consider these to be healthy meals. Zucchini is a very low calorie food. Let me share my cooked creations: Zucc Pizza Slices - not so thin sliced zucchini topped with Prego, black olives, veggie crumbles, shredded cheese, & spices then baked for about 15-20 minutes. Zucchini Crumble - chopped/diced zucchini, chopped/diced summer squash, cherry tomatoes, ground turkey crumbles seasoned w/Weber's cheddar bacon burger seasoning and garlic powder, shredded mozzarella cheese, red pepper flakes. The veggies were sauteed with plant based butter, then the turkey was seasoned and browned in a separate skillet. Once ready, everything was tossed in a bowl and sprinkled with cheese and red pepper flakes.
