We asked our farmers to send us their favorite recipes using farmers' market fruits and vegetables—whether it's a favorite "go to" meal, something that they make only when a certain fruit or vegetable is at its peak flavor, or an old family favorite that's been handed down to them. This one comes from Victoria of Laurel Glen Farm in Shelton, CT and it uses summer squash and zucchini, which are both plentiful early in the growing season. This one is super-easy and would be a great side dish or a light meal. They're even good the next morning reheated and topped with a farm-fresh poached egg.
You can use the seeded center in a ratatouille, grilled, or however you wish so that it doesn’t go to waste.
The Monroe Farmers' Market is open June–October and offers fresh, locally-grown produce, baked goods, prepared foods and hand-crafted specialty foods to Connecticut locals.
