Smashed Zucchini Paste
This is not my recipe, it belongs to Jamie Oliver. But it's worth sharing. This is great for parties and the holidays.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cloves garlic
1-2 small dried red chilies, crumbled
6-8 small zucchini, unevenly sliced
Kosher salt and pepper
1 good handful of fresh mint, chopped
juice of 1 lemon
Put a few glugs of oil in pan, and fry garlic and chilies, throw in zucchini. Cook about 35 minutes. When soft remove from heat. Season well and pour 4 good glugs of olive oil to flavor and loosen. Add chopped mint and lemon juice.
Serve with toasted breads
