this is definitely one of those summertime produce, less is more types of recipes. to be honest, i feel a little sheepish publishing a “recipe” for grilled zucchini and onions with mint and feta. i mean, there are only 5 ingredients, 4 of which are enumerated in the name of the recipe, but then i remembered that not everything has to be complicated.
i mean, i know it’s summer but we’re still busy: we have bottles of sunscreen to track down, ice cream cones to eat before the sprinkles drip onto our flip flops, and a wet, sandy towel or 27 that needs to be hung up to dry in the sun.
so we’re gonna keep this one simple, especially since the farmers’ markets and CSA shares are overflowing with delicious vegetables that need little to be amazing.
to wit, here zucchini and onions get a brief turn on the grill before being finished off with a hearty drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a liberal shower of mint and feta. that’s all. 5 ingredients, 15ish minutes, aaaand dinner.
oh, and assuming there are only two of you dining, you have leftovers to make quinoa with grilled zucchini (recipe coming on thursday!). that’s a solid foundation for 2 different meals in about 15 minutes.
which leaves plenty of time for hosing the sand off the beach toys, finding s’mores-worthy sticks, or drilling holes in the lid of the new firefly catching jar, you know, depending on what you have on your to do list for tonight… happy summer-ing, y’all.
