I picked up some really great Zucchini from the Farmer's Market. The farmer said they were similar to the 'Zucchini Bolognese' variety but that they were from Mexican origin. I am not gonna chase the tail but they were very tasty.
This recipe is super simple and the results are always grand.
Start off with a handful of Zucchini. Slice them super thin by hand or if you prefer, a mandolin.
In a pot with Olive Oil, commence by sweating half a minced Onion. Add a minced clove of Garlic and sweat it down slowly. Add the sliced Zucchini and start to sweat this down as well. Lots of sweating going on... Add some salt to taste and to also draw out the liquids from the Zucchini. This should speed up the process a touch. Add some fresh ground Black Pepper. Once the Zucchini has lost its texture and is nice and soft, it is ready. At this point, add a few leaves of chopped fresh Mint. Stir this in and serve it warm or cold. This could work as a side dish, as a small taste or cicchetto or as a topping for grilled fish or whatever else you can come up with.
