Recipe by the Farmhouse Kitchen
This is our new favorite thing to eat. Sometimes we eat mashed zucchini with roasted tomatoes and nothing else, ahhhh summer!
2 TB Butter
4 TB chopped Onion
1 lb Zucchini, diced
1 TB Parsley, minced, you could also add some finely chopped Basil
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Freshly grated Parmesan, to taste, optional
Melt the butter in a heavy bottomed sauce pan, add the onion and cook until the onion is glassy. Add the zucchini and parsley, and mix well until it is well coated with by the melted butter. Turn the temp down to medium low or low, cover and cook for 20 minutes. Stir a few times, and check to make sure nothing is browning, you don’t want the onion to burn. You can also add a little garlic, into the mix if you like, but only a little, you really want the flavor of buttery zucchini to come through. Mash with a potato masher or puree with an immersion blender.
