{meatless monday} — a very delicious repost

25 Feb

i was super lazy this weekend – we got about 14 inches of snow here in colorado.  all i have been doing is eating comfort food and watching a felicity marathon.  so i admit i didn’t prepare a meatless monday recipe for today… though, i really want to make some of these soon…

i’ve posted about these yummy zucchini pizza strips before… but i’ve been craving them, so i wanted to {re}share… they are SO GOOD!

———

– zucchini

– cherry tomatoes

– sweet onion

– cream cheese

begin by heating the oven to 400 degrees…

cut off the ends of the zucchini and then slice them in half.

use a basting brush and smear on some olive oil to the backside of the zucchini strips.

chop up your sweet onion like so…

slice your tomatoes in half like so…

then smear on your cream cheese, and add your toppings…


naturally, i wanted mine to be as colourful as possible so i went for a rainbow look.  i wedged a couple sweet onion slices in between each tomato… and of course, sprinkle on some S&P…

once ready, pop them in the oven for about 30 minutes until the zucchini is tender… i checked on mine a few times, nervously looking for any tomatoes left behind… surprisingly, they all remained intact.

and turned out oh-so-pretty…

and oh-so-delicious!!!!

these are great hors d’oeuvres for a party, as an afterschool kids snack, or even the main dinner dish – serve alongside a hearty grain like quinoa or some cous cous and a big salad!

whatever you do with them, know that they’ll be gone quickly!
