That sounds good Amethyst. Unfortunately I can’t use the oven. My A/C is working overtime with the Texas heat right now. :hot_face: :fire:

Do you have a grill? Maybe you could bake it on it. Otherwise, I’d cut it up in chunks and sautee it.

Good luck!

@Ostara I spent 2 years with only a grill to cook with, that is totally doable

Hooray for zucchini and tomato recipes! :tada: We’ve started to get some in the garden although they aren’t nearly as happy out there as they were last year. Still, there’s enough to make recipes with. This sounds fun, tasty, and healthy- it’s a triple win! :grinning:

Thanks for sharing, @Amethyst! :heart:
