Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced into rounds
  • salt and pepper, to season
  • ½ cup mint leaves, torn (optional)
  • 50 g Greek fetta, crumbled

Instructions
 

  • Heat a medium fry pan over medium heat. Add the pine nuts and toast gently until golden for 2-3 minutes, tossing every 30 seconds or so to prevent them burning. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in the fry pan. Add the sliced zucchini  in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper and cook without turning for 2 minutes or until the underside is golden brown. Turn each zucchini, season and cook the other side for a further 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and place zucchini on a serving platter. Sprinkle with the torn mint leaves if desired, the crumbled fetta and the pine nuts and serve.
