What A Wonderful Creature
Because it takes up the flavours of the things it is cooked with, the zucchini can often be used as a filler for more expensive veggies.
The price of tomatoes, for instance, can often reach insane levels of late (and I love my tomato.)
When you want fried tomato, onion and, say, garlic you can bulk the dish up by adding chunky sliced zucchini.
Don't wait for the prices of other things to go up, though, because it is a wonderful dish anyway.
Oh yes: Don't forget to add a little (or a lot) of basil to the fried tomato.
