Fresh Zucchini, Almond and Mint

What you Need :

  • 1 lb zucchini, trimmed (do not peel) and cut into pieces the size of an almond
  • ½ cup  shelled almonds or whole blanched almonds
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder or to taste
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 24 fresh mint leaves cut into fine ribbons

How to Make It :

In large bowl, combine zucchini, almonds, curry powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss together, cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 15 minutes to absorb seasoning. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the oil over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add zucchini mixture and cook, shaking pan frequently until golden, 3-4 minutes. The zucchini should remain crunchy. Add mint and toss to blend evenly. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve immediately.
