Zucchini, Tomato and Feta Omelet

By David Harbilas

One of the challenges of writing a menu is in finding seemingly new ideas within old or familiar dishes.

I’m currently working for a friend who has decided to open a restaurant, and we will be serving brunch over the weekends.

It will be a Mediterranean theme, with an emphasis on Turkish food, which is far less “foreign” than some would think.

Many ingredients used in Greek cooking are used in Turkish cuisine, one of them being feta. Tomatoes are used widely, and here I’ve opted to use them in a simple omelet.

Chilled Zucchini-Mint Soup with Cherry Tomato Confit

By David Harbilas

The tomato in this dish is really only a condiment, yet it elevates a satisfying soup into something more memorable by adding a sweetness to off-set the mild and herby quality of the zucchini and mint.

This is another wonderful early summer first course, and it is a perfect introduction to roast chicken or fish.

Makes about ½ gallon soup, with 1 cup of tomato confit.

Recipe: Grilled Zucchini, Tomato, and Fennel Salad with Lemon and Oregano

zuch3By David Harbilas

Tomato is one of the few vegetables that pairs well with many others, including zucchini, which seems to end up in many bland preparations.

One of the best ways to cook zucchini is to grill it, and its mild flavor goes perfectly with ripe sliced tomato.

Fennel, shaved thinly, adds a licorice flavor, and the entire salad is dressed with lemon, olive oil, and chopped oregano.
