I love vegetables. I was the kid who happily ate broccoli and Brussels sprouts, and as an adult, I’m always looking for ways to incorporate more vegetables in our diet. This is easier in the summer, when farmer’s markets pop up around the city and I can buy fresh beautiful vegetables for a competitive price. Sometimes I even get vegetables for free! My in-laws have a very prolific zucchini plant, and as much as they love to cook, they can’t keep up. I was happy to take a couple of zucchini off their hands.
Zucchini (or in French, courgette) is a versatile ingredient. I have oodles of delicious recipes that use zucchini. But when my father-in-law handed me those beautiful zucchini, all I could think was ratatouille.
