Shortly after reading Food Matters and receiving a cast iron, two-burner griddle for Christmas, I was inspired to get back to my dinners of simply prepared vegetables. I know that zucchini and yellow squash and eggplant are out of season. And I know that this pita was made with overly processed flour. And this hummus had a few ingredients that I couldn’t pronounce. But all of that is better than eating half a pound of commercially raised beef, right? I think so and I think Bittman would agree.
After a meal, I can almost always say, I can eat better than this. But, as long as I can also say, I ate better than I could have, I’m happy.
So I brushed these squashes with oil, placed them carefully on the hot grill, flipped them onto our plates, drizzled them with balsamic vinegar, and pretended it was July.
