Zucchini with walnuts, mushrooms and blue cheese – what a splendid
accompaniment for meat or poultry!
tablespoons unsalted butter
toasted and skinned walnuts, coarsely chopped
tablespoons minced fresh parsley
zucchini, cut in matchstick strips
tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add
the walnuts, shallots and parsley and sauté a few minutes. Stir in
the mushrooms, toss to combine and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Heat the
remaining butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle
the zucchini lightly with salt and add. Sauté quickly until
tender-crisp, 1 to 2 minutes. Mound the zucchini on a warm
flameproof serving platter and put the walnut mixture on top.
Sprinkle with cheese. Preheat the broiler to the highest setting.
Place the platter 6 inches from the broiling element and broil just
long enough to warm the topping, about 30 seconds.
