This broiled zucchini recipe is a perfect Shavuot recipe, to be used as a side dish. Kosher side dishes for Shavuot can be dairy or pareve, but the cheese makes it taste that much more delicious.
8 small new potatoes (red or white, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter)
4 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
4 small zucchini, cut in 1/2 lengthwise (about 1-inch wide by 5 inches long)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼ to ½ cup grated Parmesan
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the potatoes and cook until just tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and let cool. When cool, cut the potatoes in half.
Place a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the butter, garlic, thyme and rosemary and let cook until the butter melts, about 2 minutes. Meanwhile, season the cut sides of the zucchini and potatoes with salt and pepper. Place the zucchini and potatoes in the melted butter. Let them cook until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes.
Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place the browned zucchini and potatoes on the baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops with the Parmesan. Place in the broiler until the cheese is golden brown, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and serve.
