Quick Baked Zucchini with Creme Fraiche, Herbs & Tomatoes


This dish makes a colorful presentation and is really quick and easy to prepare. I like how the blanching takes away any bitterness from the zucchini, and the fresh herbs and veggies get a dollop of richness from creme fraiche. If you are entertaining guests, you can complete the first few steps ahead of time and save the 5 or 10 minutes of baking until after they arrive.

What you will need

2 small zucchinis (or 1 large)

1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in halves or quarters

1 bunch fresh basil, chopped (parsley or chives would work fine too)

1/2 cup creme fraiche

1 splash olive oil
