But it's pretty damn good for an experiment.
After a pretty rough track practice, boyfriend declared that it was time for a "light" dinner. I almost castrated him, then I got my bearings back, and decided to make the most of it.
Tuna salad with capers in a hollowed out tomato? Topped with half a slice of cheese and some panko? Sure, why not? Sorry no photo... it's all gone.
The problem with light dinners is always dessert. I want basically to cover my body in chocolate in a desperate attempt to get it all into my mouth. Boyfriend, and my waistline, generally frown on this. In comes zucchini.
I got 2 zucchinis Sunday night at the Mexican grocery for super cheap, and I decided that it's time to use them. Basically, this dessert became a sort of deconstructed (oh the cliche) healthy version of zucchini bread. And it's damn tasty. Try it!
Zucchini healthy bread in a muffin tin
- 1 zucchini, shredded with a grater
- 1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie seasoning
- 3 eggs
- 2 Tablespoons Olive oil
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
Construction : Mix all ingredients except eggs in a bowl. In muffin tins, put an beaten egg into each of 3 muffin holes. Bake until slightly firm. Spoon 1/3 of zucchini mix into each muffin hole. Bake until... risen? Not leaking? Whatever. Eat.
Sorry if this post is slightly angry. It's healthy dessert with vegetable in it. It's not a chocolate bar. Don't kid yourself.
