It’s hard to believe it’s already been three months that we’ve been receiving our Door to Door Organics deliveries. Once a week since mid-May, a shipment of organic produce (and other groceries when I remember to place the additional order) appear on our doorstep like clockwork. There’s nothing to do but to remember to put our cooler out on our front porch — and even when I forget that, the DTDO crew has my back, placing our groceries with a cold pack in a reusable box. It’s cut down on my grocery store visits, which means more time for me in the kitchen.
Another new-to-me thing I’ve been enjoying this summer is my spiralizer. I purchased mine on Amazon for less than $8 and have been spiralizing veggies since. Good thing we’ve gotten plenty of zucchini in our boxes the past month or so! My new found love for delivered organic produce + my new kitchen toy lead to the inspiration for this dish.
“Zoodles” with Grape Tomatoes
Serves two hungry Hansens — or four servings as sides
- 2 small zucchini*, spiralized
- 1/2 tablespoon olive oil (enough to coat your pan)
- 1 tablespoon garlic*, diced
- 1 small onion*, diced
- 1/2 a pint grape tomatoes*, halved
- Salt, to taste
- Black pepper, to taste
- Oregano, to taste
- Cheese for garnish (optional)
Heat the olive oil in a non-stick sauté pan at medium to high heat. Add the onion and garlic once the oil is hot. Cook until garlic and onion are gold in color (to allow some caramelization to occur.) Add the zucchini and season with salt, pepper and oregano — be generous with the seasonings! Combine all ingredients to coat evenly with the olive oil/onion/garlic “sauce”. Reduce the heat to low, and add the tomatoes. Cover the pan with a lid, then let simmer on low until the tomatoes are soft. Serve as is or garnish with your favorite hard, white cheese — a Parmigiano-Reggiano would be excellent with this!
