Summer cooking made easy
Summertime cooking should be easy and quick, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy the season outside of the kitchen. Serve up this sandwich made with a summer produce staple — zucchini.
Makes 1 sandwich
2 slices whole grain or sprouted grain bread
1 slice sharp cheddar cheese
2 large vertical slices zucchini
1 teaspoon olive oil
Black pepper to taste
Nonstick cooking spray
In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the zucchini slices on each side until lightly browned. Set aside.
Spray a pan with nonstick spray to coat. Layer the zucchini, cheese and pepper on a slice of bread. Top with the other slice of bread. Spray the top of the sandwich with nonstick spray. Toast on each side until cheese is melted and bread is slightly browned.
