This financial and health conundrum leads me to get a little creative with the dinners I whip up from time to time. Tonight was no exception. I had picked up a couple zucchini (a staple at my house now), a container of baby bella mushrooms (on sale), and some hummus (on sale) during a trip to the grocer last week. Yesterday, during another quick stop to get fruits and veggies, I also grabbed some Foldit Artisan Flatbreads by Flatout (BOGO this week!). These were just random items that I knew I would be able to use some way or another, be it by themselves or in a combination of things.
Here's what you need and what to do with it:
1 medium sized zucchini - washed and sliced
2 Foldit Artisan Flatbreads (I used the Rosemary & Olive Oil flavor)
4 oz Baby Bella Mushrooms
4 tablespoons hummus (any flavor - I used plain)
Olive Oil to saute
Parmesan Cheese (the grated kind is find, such as Kraft)
Add approximately 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a pan on medium heat. Once warm, add zucchini slices flat on the bottom of the pan. Lightly sprinkle with garlic salt, Italian seasoning and cheese. Saute for about 5 minutes on one side. Flip slices over and repeat. Once done to your liking (I leave them in until the cheese gets a little brown on one side), remove from pan individually leaving any remaining oil and seasoning in the bottom of the pan. Add mushrooms and saute until done. Remove from pan. Lay out bread. Cover each slice with 2 tablespoons of hummus. Sprinkle each piece lightly with paprika. Top hummus with a layer of zucchini and then a layer of mushrooms using equal amounts on each piece of bread. Fold bread and Enjoy!
As always, play with this recipe. Find out what you like. Try with different flavors of hummus or different flavors of flatbread. I was thinking this might also be amazing with some added sauteed onions and/or peppers. Let me know if you try it out and what combos you use!
(Sorry I don't have a photo for you on this one... I didn't expect it to be blog-worthy. Next time I make this, I'll be sure to update :)
