Zucchini Dip, Just Delicious!

Zucchini Dip, Just Delicious!

Zucchini is one of the most prepared vegetables during Summertime. I prepare zucchini in many different ways and I am always curious about discovering new ways to serve it.

When I saw this recipe (called zucchini butter) on Food52, by Jennie Cook, I was immediately attracted as it is extremely simple to prepare and looks yummy.

And my intuition was right! I prepared it last Saturday for lunch and I ate it all with my husband – yes, we ate in two what is supposed to be 4 servings ;-). But why worry about it? The whole recipe has only 530 calories!

We ate it with the crispy Sardinian bread, but I believe any bread will fit, even if crispy or toasted ones are probably better.

I grated the zucchini using my food processor, but you can also use your mandoline. I used extra virgin olive oil but I believe it may be delicious too prepared with butter.
