Zucchini Me, O Solar Oven!
In our area, at this time of year, there seems to be a plethora of fresh zucchini. Friends that garden, as well as family members, all seem to have a plentiful patch of zucchini this year. So, why not take advantage of those lovely green things they give ( sometimes force upon) you. Of course, the markets are also stocked with them, just in case you cannot find a helpful garden friend.
Well, here is a simple and tasty solution for that delicious green surplus; Zucchini Parmesan Rounds. This recipe will take you only a few minutes to prepare and only an hour, or so, in your solar oven to bake.
Slice the zucchini into rounds and lightly bathe them in olive oil and then a mixed egg. Lightly your cooking pan with oil and space the slices on the bottom. Lightly sprinkle with garlic powder, then black pepper (my zesty friends use red pepper). Next, sprinkle a layer of bread crumbs and then spoon grated Parmesan onto each slice. Pop it into the oven and let the sunshine do its magic. Surprisingly, they come out moist and delicious.
And…an hour later with passing clouds.
We also used the All American Sun oven to bake some of these tasty slices.
Just another demonstration of what green living, gardening and solar cooking, in this instance, can do to make your life better. If you are interested in starting your own garden, seed your thinking a little. Visit www.solarovenshop.com
