Week 11: Three Easy Steps for a New Hue

green tomatoes
Step One: Receive a couple of nice green tomatoes in your CSA bag. (That's green as in unripe, not a green tomato variety).

Step Two: Peruse the Web for recipes that don't include the word "fried" before the words "green tomatoes."

Step Three: Make this recipe for a Green Tomato and Zucchini Gratin and enjoy the accolades of your family. Or the accolades of my family. We'll be over at 6.

Green Tomato and Zucchini Gratin


  1. OK! I'll try it--I have really had NO ideas for the green tomatoes.

    Interestingly, we both made Indian food with some of our CSA materials last week. My choice for the kale: Saag. It was fabulous-- a lot better than another batch of soup!

  2. Since I had only the two tomatoes, I made a half-batch of the gratin, and it was just the right amount for us. (The feta and the crumbs made the dish, but the veggies were good, too.) I hope you like it.

    I've never made Saag, but that's a good idea if we get more kale or chard.
