favorite zucchini casserole
Got some zucchini still?
Here is another of our favorite recipes from Diane Hopkins. This is taken from her book Hopkin’s Healthy Home Cooking. If you are looking for an easy way to start eating with whole grains and lots of veggies AND you don’t want to use weird ingredients, this is the book for you. We have used this book so much, we had to buy a new one because we couldn’t read some of the recipes any longer. We have loved every recipe we have made from this book – they are tried and true on all sorts of families. Some of our favorites are broccoli and potato soup, mexican rice, mexicali squash, graham crackers, tortillas, fiesta salad, homemade ketchup, cheater’s white sauce, heavenly marinade, tortilla soup, pumpkin cookies, and of course, her cook and freeze italian sauce. You can buy the book from her website, Latter-day Family Resources.
It is so yummmm.
4 large (10″ long) zucchini, chopped
4 large tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp. oregano powder
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
1/2 cup grated cheese
Steam zucchini and put in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Top with raw chopped tomatoes. There should be equal portions of zucchini and tomatoes. Combine sour cream with spices and dot on top. Sprinkle cheese over the top and put under the broiler just long enough to melt the cheese. Tomatoes will be warm, but not cooked.
We love this meal! I think I will make it tonight since just talking about it makes my mouth water and my heart leap with anticipation. We haven’t had it since last fall – I think it is high time!
