Regardless of my near death experience, tomatoes tasted like water during those months and I couldn’t bring myself to eat less than stellar, out of season tomatoes.
Fun + Feisty Zucchini Cups
[serves one and is easily doubled, tripled, or quadrupled for a hungry crowd!]
Cucumber cups are equally amazing — But you have to promise me you’ll try it both ways! — baked zucchini is your friend. Pah-romise!
And by no big deal, I mean HUGE deal! They’re great raw and even better straight from the toaster oven. Lightly baking this appetizer results in perfectly buttery and tender zucchini with fluffy feta that melted ever so slightly for a warm, zesty, and utterly delicious pairing. They travel well and can be prepped a day or two ahead of time for a party or gathering. They’re even incredible reheated for a midnight snack. [Um, best midnight snack EVER!]
Feel free to stuff the filling into cucumber cups and serve chilled on a hot day! But promise me you’ll make the baked zucchini version too — It really is life-changing <3
