I shared about the benefits of zucchini to my feed last week. One of my biggest passions is gardening and I am so happy to say that I grew these zucchinis in my very own garden! I wanted to share this easy and delicious snack as zucchini is one of my favorite summer fruits (yep, botanically, they’re considered a fruit, even though prepared usually as a savory dish!) You can use whatever you’d like or have on hand but I really love the flavor of zucchini!
Toast your pine nuts. You can either do it on a stove top or in the oven. For the oven, preheat to 375 F. Spread the pine nuts in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring around every 2 minutes. If you prefer to toast them on a stove top, place them in a large frying pan (don’t add oil!). Cook until golden brown, stirring frequently. They should start becoming more fragrant. When toasted, transfer to plate to stop the cooking process.
Slice up your desired vegetable. I used zucchini for this snack!
Drizzle the veggies with olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juiced, and salt and pepper. Sprinkle with toasted pine nuts and enjoy!
