Many good crops here at the farm this week. And, happily, many guests to feed. We shared our crop of sugar snap peas, and that was an easy sell. But we also served zucchini, and our guests loved it. Some of the best veggies they ever had. Seriously.
How do we know the zucchini was such a hit? We made the “famous” Red Cat Zucchini for the Red Cat restaurant in New York City. And we can say the recipe is famous because we have never been to the restaurant or read the Red Cat Cookbook, but the recipe made it to us anyway. And we are glad it did. There are few vegetable recipes more delicious, and few easier to make than this zucchini dish.
The Red Cat Zucchini combines thinly sliced zucchini, almonds, pecorino romano cheese, olive oil, salt and pepper. It is a basic list of ingredients but the final dish absolutely sings. The sweetness of the zucchini goes perfectly with the nutty almonds and is balanced by the salty pecorino. Each bite is a delight. And it only takes 10-15 minutes to make. This dish is so good you will actually want your neighbors to
offload share their excess zucchini. And you can serve this recipe with almost any summer meal. Great stuff.
