Hubby quickly chose chicken, because it can be prepared in a variety of ways.
I, on the other hand, couldn't answer the question. I love food too much. How could I possibly choose just one food to eat for the rest of my life?
But today, I finally came up with an answer...Zucchini! Not only is it my favorite veggie, it's much more versatile than chicken. I can't imagine eating a chicken dessert. But zucchini, on the other hand, can be eaten both sweet AND savory.
One of my favorite ways to eat zucchini is in Tortitas de Calabacita (Zucchini Patties). I love them for breakfast or as a side dish with a little Chile de Molcajete. During Cuaresma (Lent) I like to serve my tortitas in Mole Ranchero. Tortitas de Calabacita also make for a great veggie burger!
Tortitas de Calabacita
- 2 cups shredded zucchini
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons chopped onion
- Butter (for frying)
Place the shredded zucchini in a fine-sieve strainer. Using the back of a spoon, press on the zucchini, to drain all of the liquid. Transfer the zucchini to a medium bowl. Add the eggs, flour and onion. Season with salt and pepper.
Mix until well combined. The mixture will be a little thick.
Cover skillet and let cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side until golden brown.
Serve with your favorite salsa, Chile de Molcajete or a dollop of Mexican Crema. Enjoy!!!
