Recipe – zucchini-gold beet skillet with fresh herbs

Zucchini and Gold Beets 42 T extra virgin olive oil
3 small zucchini, quartered lengthwise and cubed
¼ cup unbleached flour
2 gold beets, peeled, cubed (¼ inch) and steamed for 10 minutes.
12-18 fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
¾ t apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar
Large pinch of salt

Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a wide bottomed pan to medium. Sprinkle the flour over the zucchini and toss gently. Lift the zucchini out carefully, shaking off excess flour. Carefully place the zucchini in the pan and sautee, stirring occasionally. You may need to turn the heat up slightly after the zucchini first go in, but reduce again as needed. I should always sizzle.

After the zucchini has browned some, add the gold beets and stir well. Cover, turn heat down a little and cook for 3-5 minutes or so. Add mint and salt. Stir. Place in a bowl and add vinegar and stir well.
