I totally thought that the kids would eat this, but Eleanor has been leading the “No New Foods” parade, and Cosmo has been tagging along, literally repeating her refusals VERBATIM. Not like that’s annoying or anything.
I served these with some pesto and tomato, and we made little fried zucchini stacks, and they were wonderful. The basic frying technique is below, but you do need something else to do with these besides eat them plain. They would go well as a layer in a sandwich, or into some sort of fried veggie taco.
Now I need to go for a jog…
- 2 yellow squash sliced 1/4 ” thick
- 2 C panko
- enough peanut oil for frying
In a bowl, beat the egg. Put panko on a plate and season with salt and pepper. Get your oil nice and hot (about 350). Coat squash in egg and then panko and fry until golden brown. Remove from oil to a paper towel to remove some of the oil and serve!
