When planning out my weekly dinners my goal is to make something delicious and healthy just about every night. I also try and create meals that are somewhat simple because I usually have a child attached to one leg while cooking. Here is one recipe that is easy, light, and yummy.
Roasted Zucchini Flatbread (adapted from www.foodnetwork.com)
- 4 small zucchini (or 1 per person you are feeding)
- round, pocketless whole wheat pita (1 per person)
- crumbled goat cheese
- baby arugula
- almonds, chopped
- olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice zucchini (1/2″ thick) and place on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper- toss to coat. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until tender, tossing half way through.
Meanwhile, warm pita on grill or in a sauté pan until warm. Spread a heaping spoonful of hummus on each pita. Sprinkle with goat cheese, zucchini slices, about 1/2 cup arugula, and 1 tbsp of almonds.
