Zucchini with Herbed Breadcrumbs and Goat Cheese - Easy but Fancy

We all face the same challenges - fast, easy and TASTY weeknight meals. I've made my life simple by relying on my Sous Vide Supreme Demi to make cooking proteins a no fuss operation but I do like having a fresh component on my dish. I generally saute or roasted a veg - kale, spinach, brocolini, etc.

More often than not zucchini makes it on my plate. It's mild flavor that goes with everything, it cooks quickly with a minimum of oil, and it comes in convenient size options - no leftover leaves hanging around. 1 zucchini does the trick for my 2 person household!

I generally chop it up and saute with some garlic. But sometimes you want to be a little fancy and it is still very simple and adds only a little of prep time to the overall cooking.

I do use the techniques I learned to triage a few pounds of here and there when needed. In fact one of the best things I learned from the 5:2 diet was how to deal with hunger and not go over board when eating again. But that wasn't a consideration the last month when I was in vacation in Thailand! I gobbled up so many delicious foods and experienced so many new dishes. It was fantastic. I was grateful to have preemptively lost a few pounds before landing in Bangkok as I gained a bunch by the time I left! I'll be posting up my food adventures soon. In the meantime feel free to check out my Thailand pictures on my Instagram account. In the meantime I will leave you with my happy worn to the US and blogging and of course some #foodporn - crispy lad na from a local food court for 40 b…
