The refrigerator light goes on...

This goes well with almost any dish, but especially a steak or roasted pork main course. The zucchini is simple to prep. Cut the stem end off and make three slices lengthways so you have 4 slices. Stack two slices and cut lengthways three times again. Do this with all four slices and then cut crossways for a large dice.

Zucchini with Sun Dried Tomatoes recipe from Dr. Gourmet

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sun dried tomato slices
  • 1/3 cup boiling water
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. pine nuts
  • 2 medium zucchini (1/2 inch dice)
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. dried thyme leaves
  • to taste fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. unsalted butter

Place the sun dried tomatoes in a small bowl and add the boiling water.

Let the tomatoes steep for 20 minutes.

Remove the tomatoes and finely mince. Reserve the water the tomatoes steeped in.

Place a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the olive oil and the sun dried tomato and pine nuts.

Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes.

Reduce the heat if necessary so that the pine nuts don't brown too much - they should be a light golden brown.

Add the zucchini, salt, thyme, and pepper.

Increase the heat to medium high.

Cook, tossing frequently, until the zucchini just begins to brown on all sides and is slightly soft.

Add the butter and toss.

Add 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the tomato water one tablespoon at a time to create a thick sauce .

Serve.
