Zucchini Tuffo – Forget What You Know About Wheat(c)

zucchini dip

     The incredible bounty of Harvest time at the end of summer always leaves me with lots of zucchini and other yummy vegetables from gardens belonging to friends.    Kitchen Wisdom Gluten Free Zucchini Tuffo is quite easy to make and very delicious. Soft and delicate, the flavor is harmonious and not overpowering; I use an emulsion blender at the end to create a velvety softness. Serve with crackers and you will find this to be a wonderful dip recipe for an evening with friends and crisp white wine! 

Yields 2 cups of Dip

2 Medium Long Zucchini (approximately 5 cups)

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar

1 sprig fresh or ½ teaspoon dried Oregano

1 tablespoon Hard Italian Grating Cheese

Salt & Pepper to taste

(Optional) Crushed Red Pepper to taste

Clean and finely chop all of the zucchini into very small cubes.  Finely chop the garlic.  Set all aside.

Use a sauté pan large enough to accommodate all of the zucchini.  Place the olive oil in the pan on medium heat, when warm add the oregano and optional crushed red pepper followed by the garlic.  Allow the garlic to become almost golden and add the zucchini.  Salt and pepper the zucchini, toss to completely coat.  Cook uncovered on medium hight for 10 minutes, lower heat to medium and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Scoop the zucchini away from the edges and add the balsamic vinegar around the outside of the vegetable, close to the edge of the pan.  Toss to fully coat and cook an additional minute.  Just before blending, mix in the grated cheese (you can also drizzle a small amount of balsamic over the top if you prefer strong balsamic taste.)  You can serve as is, or use an emulsion blender to create a soft and billowy dip.  Serve warm with crackers.
