You guys! I have a winning summer recipe for you!
I have this mint plant that is growing out of control and I don’t have/know a ton of recipes that call for mint, other than one of my favorite salads and mojitos.
So the other day I was flipping through Tastespotting, and I happened upon this recipe for a Zucchini Tart. I had just purchased some local zucchini from Trader Joe’s, and though I was tempted to make another batch of zucchini bread pancakes, I decided that my waistline would thank me if I made something a bit less carb-o-licious (thought I do love me some carbs!). I read through the recipe and, though skeptical of the zucchini + mint + feta, COOKED combo, I decided to give it a shot.
I made a few swaps to make it a wee bit healthier (no wontons, and Greek yogurt instead of milk) – and you know what? It was DYNOMITE!
These were very flavorful, fresh, and yes, they were quite summer-ific (yes, I made that word up!). I whipped up a batch on Sunday so I can have them as breakfast or as part of lunch throughout the week! I hope you enjoy them too!
