Sometimes you’re really hungry or feeling super snacky. Sometimes you don’t have any “junk food,” but you want, nay, need some salt. Here’s something you can do.
-3/4 cup flour
-1 tablespoon garlic powder (oops)
-enough olive oil to cover the bottom of your skillet
-salt and pepper to taste
Go ahead and slice your zucchini in pieces that are about a half inch thick. Growing up, my parents made this all the time, but Dad liked to slice his really, really thin. If you want to taste the meat of this vegetable, go a half inch or larger.
Put those slices in a bowl in some water, just to get them moist.
Put the flour and garlic powder (mine was a total accident, you guys. I wanted to put just a dash, but the lid went crazy and A LOT poured out. I didn’t mind) in a smallish dish, maybe big enough to hold two slices of zucchini at a time. This will save you flour.
Warm your skillet on medium, then add the oil.
Once the skillet is full, sprinkle all the slices with salt and pepper.
Let them do their thing for about 4 minutes, then flip and do it again.
Don’t forget that paper towel (even though I hate them), there’s going to be some grease.
A word of caution: those suckers are going to be super hot. And super hot forever. Be patient. Enjoy.
(Fine. Dip them in ranch. I knew you were going to anyway.
