One of the ways I have been trying to challenge myself in the kitchen is to be more creative with cooking vegetables. At this time of year, when zucchini becomes abundant (i.e. is everywhere at market), I typically stir-fry or grill it into submission. It's only ever okay. So I decided to try something completely different and take zucchini to the next level by making Zucchini Tomato Tart. (Which, by the time you add in eggs and cheese and pastry, likely diminishes the nutritional value of the zucchini. Let's overlook that, shall we?)
I ate a wedge of this tart the next day for lunch and I liked it a bit better leftover. But still. I think I'm ready to admit I just don't like zucchini and stop buying it. Hence the title of this post. Sorry zucchini. I'm breaking up with you. It's not you, it's me. Really. I'll admit that for years, I never really made an effort to serve you at your best, but this time, this time I really tried and well...you know. See above. Don't worry. We'll still see each other sometimes, when I make zucchini bread or muffins for the kids. And I still like you in Lasagna. But I think it's best we keep this relationship casual. No hard feelings, okay?
