Baked Broccoli

Broccoli isĀ  my favorite vegetable and tonight while cooking dinner, I discovered a tasty way to prepare this green delight…
Preheat the oven to 400
Wash and trim broccoli into bite size pieces
IMG_4471Drizzle with olive oil, add salt and pepper
IMG_4479Arrange on a baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, lightly sprinkle parmesan cheese over the florets, return to oven for an additional 10 minutes. And that’s it! I recommend topping this dish off with fresh lemon juice.

tasty tapas

zucchini bruschetta

Last weekend my friend Rose had a tapas party. Well it was more like a potluck dinner party, but the instructions were to bring a tapas dish. I made my own version of a zucchini bruschetta. It turned out delicious! I think the buttery garlic bread that I served the zucchini, tomato, basil, onion and fresh mozzarella on might have had something to do with it.

If you want to try this recipe on your own…

dice two zucchini into bite size pieces
marinate in balsamic vinegar for 20 minutes or so
toss into pan with some olive oil
add fresh chopped basil, minced garlic, diced onion, halved cherry tomatos
let simmer for 10 minutes
salt & pepper to taste
add fresh mozzarella once cooled so it doesn’t melt too much…
… voila!
