Friday Foto: Italian Vegetable Medley

Italian Vegetable Medley

1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 zucchinis, cut in half lengthwise, and then sliced into 1/4-inch cross-sections
1 cup whole grape tomatoes
1 tsp dried basil
1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar

1. Saute the onions in the olive oil, until they begin to soften.
2. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant.
3. Add the zucchini, grape tomatoes, dried basil and Balsamic vinegar, and saute until the zucchini are soft.
4. Toss and serve.

Today's Friday Foto is pretty much self-explanatory. Not much to be said about it. It's an easy and flavorful way to load up your dinner plate with a nice complement of veggies, and pairs well with a variety of meals. We recently made this Italian Vegetable Medley to accompany fish, but you can come up with all sorts of ideas... try tossing it with GF pasta, or putting it over some grilled chicken. You won't be disappointed!

You know what I like best about this picture? It looks like mine do when I do them.

In the cookbooks the various ingredients always retain their individual colors. I am to lazy/rushed to cook each individually. I am always somewhat disappointed when everything bleeds together.

I'm glad even the semi-pros have real looking food on their plates.

Hi Mary... Thanks for calling us "semi-pros!" =) We're all for melding the flavors in the same skillet!

Cheers, Pete
