Zucchini Burger!


The quest to clear the fridge of veggies continued, with the next challenge posed by a gigantic zucchini grown by my brother Jason, passed on to my mom, then in turn passed on to me.


It was lunchtime, and the great circumference of the fruit inspired me to slice six ½ inch discs for me and my friend Nathan. (yeah, I looked it up – the zucchini is an “immature fruit”, or more precisely “the swollen ovary of the zucchini flower.” Hot.) I heated up the stove top cast iron grill, generously treated the discs with olive oil, salt, pepper and dried tarragon, and laid them on the grill with sliced onion and garlic scapes.


Ten minutes later, I laid it all on toasted multi-grain bread. Satisfying and fridge-clearing.


Maybe could have used some mayonnaise..
