She also has two great cookbooks available on Amazon:
- 2 small zucchini
- 3 lightly packed cup fresh mint leaves
- 2 to 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus more for grilling the zucchini
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 cup crumbled sheep or goat’s milk feta
Trim the ends of the zucchini and slice them very thin with a knife or on a mandoline.
Rub the slices very lightly with olive oil.
Combine the mint, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, hemp seeds and garlic in a food processor.
Process until the mint and garlic are finely chopped and the pesto is creamy. If necessary, add the remaining oil.
Preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill.
Grill the zucchini slices just until marked and softened, about 1 minute per side.
Arrange them on 4 plates, folding the slices in half lengthwise so they don’t lie flat on the plate, and scatter the feta over the zucchini.
Drizzle with some of the mint pesto and serve along with the remaining pesto in a separate dish.
