(sorry for the horrible picture. i forgot my camera and had to take the pic with my blackberry. it didn't turn out well)
we whipped up a super easy dinner of blackened tuna with african zucchini. i based the zucchini on a recipe from cooking light but changed it up a bit. i use similar ingredients but the preparation is different. you can see the original recipe here. the zucchini went really well with the blackened tuna. the dinner was so easy, yet elegant and so tasty!
African Zucchini (inspired by cooking light)
4 medium zucchini
1 medium onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp ground chili pepper
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/2 c crumbled feta
preheat oven to 375 degrees.
chop zucchini into small pieces (about 1/2" squares). chop onion into same size bits. spread onto foil lined cookie sheet. add mince garlic and spices. toss together so veggies are evenly coated with oil and spices.
roast for 15-20 minutes until tender. remove from oven and mash slightly with back of a spoon.
transfer to serving bowl and toss with lemon juice and feta cheese. serve immediately.
