Cooking with Bradley

Welcome to the first installment of my new feature,
Cooking With Bradley.

Each week, I will share with you in an easy-to-follow format one tried and true recipe that is guaranteed to wow your family! This week, I am starting with something simple but delicious. Even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy this classic Greek delight:

Tossed Eggplant and Zucchini


You will need:

1-3 ripe eggplants


1 raw zucchini


water


olive oil


sea salt (not the Hain brand)



Directions:

1) Peel and chop the raw eggplant into 2 inch cubes



2) Peel and chop the raw zucchini into 2 inch cubes



3) Get a pot. In the pot, add just enough water to cover the bottom. Place a vegetable steamer (also known as a "UFO") into the pot. Combine chopped zucchini and eggplant in the steamer, and steam, covered, until lightly cooked.




4) Remove from the pot. Coat the pieces with olive oil and salt, making sure that oil and salt are distributed evenly over the surfaces of the vegetables.



5) Open a window.



6) Toss zucchini and eggplant out the window.


7) Order out for Greek pizza.



Opa!

Brad, I don't know how you do it, but you sure know how to make a tasty dish from unlikely ingredients. By the way, the neighbors are complaining about swarms of fruit flies that mysterious turned up in their yard.

Well, the stray cat seemed to like it!

Though the AVON lady didn't care for her new hat.

Looks delicious Brad. Who helped you chop? I see human hands in one of those pics.

Nonny: You've caught me out. I used stock photos from the internet.

I love both eggplant AND zucchini. But the pizza looked WAY better. I can't wait for next week's recipe!

OH! I saw that steamer - well, a plastic, microwavable near-replica - last night! How ironic that I saw IT before I saw your post. The plastic one definately looked like your metal one, too. Now...onto pizza. And zucchini.
