So I think all of my 'food aversions' are starting to dissipate. First, I conquered chicken after nearly 8 months. Then it seemed like zucchini was the last true holdout of dishes that made me shake in terror (could have been because BBQ chicken & grilled zucchini were the first meal I ate once 'morning sickness' REALLY set in and I had NO CLUE how to handle itJ ) But after having dinner last night, I think I can officially say that zucchini & I have reached 'friend status again' as I whipped up a little...
Yep...that's right! I had tried this as a cold side dish once, but REALLLY thought it was kicked up a notch when it was sauteed!
You WILL need a mandolin in order to julienne the zucchini into long strands (you could chop the zucchini into thin strips, but it might take a bit longer) but once that's done, this dinner came together in a jiff!
First, I toasted up some chopped walnuts in a pan (you could also use pine nuts). Once they were toasty and brown, I set them off to the side.
