Spicy Vegetable Medley
Eating something hot and spicy on a hot day makes you cool off; please try it. Peel and chop one shallot and a two inch cube of peeled fresh ginger. Saute those two ingredients in a pat of butter in a large frying pan. Meanwhile chop up some fresh tomato in small pieces, about one cup full of a medium firm type. Add the tomato to the pan. Leave the skins on and chop one medium zucchini and one medium crookneck squash in small bite size pieces. Add those to the pan and stir well. Add a few shakes of some Jamaican hot sauce. Grind in a little fresh pepper, cover and let steam on medium low heat till squash is soft but still firm. Stir occasionally to blend the flavors.
This is so quick and easy to make and very tasty too. There's something about that Jamaican hot sauce and the ginger together that really makes my taste buds come alive. It takes about 15 minutes to cook. You'll make it over and over again. Oh, this Spicy Vegetable Medley was so good I forgot to take a photo when it was ready to eat. The dish looked more blended than the top photo in the pan. I've made it twice since. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
