Excited for tomorrow. I’m going to eat well again.
Stone Ground Mustard
1 Ear of corn
Never grew up liking nor eating zucchini. Recently, I worked on this job that made me zoodle the vegetable and my life was changed for the better. Went to CVS to try and find a Zoodler in my neighborhood. You know the “As seen on TV” section has all the stuff you really want but don’t need. I didn’t need a gadget to peel zucchini.
Saved my money.
Went home and washed and sliced the zucchini into thin slivers. When I got down to the meaty (not so pretty) part of the zucchini, i turned it on its side and chopped it into round nuggets. First thought was “friend zucchini” then I realized that the only oil I own was coconut oil and batter frying vegetables takes all the health out of it. So I found a happy compromise. Found some stone ground mustard and polenta. Without second guessing my actions, I puréed a tomato and used that as a base for polenta batter. I then dipped the zucchini in the mustard and then into the polenta and threw the pieces into a hot pan of oil.
Decided to make pesto with some extra basil that I had in the fridge. Threw that, a clove of garlic, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, coriander and parsley in my Nutri Bullet and gave it a whirl. The most amazing deliciousness came out of my kitchen experiment.
I scooped a tablespoon full of this pesto in a bowl and tossed in the fresh zucchini slices. I then mixed fresh corn.
The fried zucchini went on top with a garnish of carrot.
