Broiled Fingerling Zucchini

Broiled Fingerling Zucchini
Another healthy Thanksgiving Giving veggie idea :)
broiled baby zukes

These are small, intensely delicious baby Zucchinis we’ve been enjoying since the summer! This post has been in my files for long enough and I thought I’d share another really easy and healthy recipe with y’all

1 pack of Baby or Fingerling Zukes (about 24)
Wash and just cut the small ridged top off
DO not cut the bottom stems
Make an x cut on the top of the zucchini and slit down to half way or a little less

You need a marinade to stuff the slits with – this depends entirely your creativity – you could do a bunch of things and give it an Italian, Asian, Middle Easter or Indian flavor – I went Asian with this one –

For this you will need –
2tbsp roasted peanuts – ground fine
1 tbsp Sczhewan Sauce
1 tbsp Sirarcha Sauce
1/2 tsp crush thai basil
 whip it all together gently ensuring a thickish sauce
Pour generously into the slits and press together

Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and spray
Spray with Pam olive oil over the zucchinis before putting in the oven
Broil for 15 minutes (or bake for 10 minutes at 425 F)

Enjoy with noodles, pasta or as a starter :)

  4. Such a beautiful dish Priya – although unfortunately I've never seen baby zucchinis for sale here :( I guess I could do a similar thing with full size ones, although the taste wouldn't be so delicious, and they wouldn't be such a handy size either 😀
