Marinated Zucchini

This is a brilliant Moosewood recipe to use up any zucchini you have hanging around! I remembered to take a picture before devouring the last two bites.

1 zucchini (or peeled eggplant), sliced about 1/3" thick
2-4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
olive oil
1 Tbsp. vinegar (I like balsamic - especially the white balsamic from Trader Joe's)
dash salt
chopped fresh herbs (mint, parsley, basil, oregano, or thyme)


In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add zucchini and fry until golden on both sides (work in batches if necessary). Transfer zucchini to a bowl. In a little more olive oil, saute the garlic until golden but not brown. Transfer garlic to bowl, and top with vinegar, salt and herbs. Stir to combine. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.

If you want to make the zucchini or eggplant into a sandwich, toast the sandwich bread in the skillet in the leftover garlic-infused olive oil. You can melt some cheese on there while you're at it. YUM.
