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
