Food Matters Project Monday


This weeks‘ assignment is a tough one: Savoury Tomato Crisp. Uugh. With a tomato-hating husband that calls for adjustments- big time.

In addition, tomatoes are not yet in season here in Calgary and I despise the idea of using canned tomatoes. They are awesome in a sauce, bolognese, lasagna etc. but as a star in this dish? No way!

Nicole from The giving Table is this weeks‘ host. Hop over to her site for the original recipe. I need to find other ingredients.


Zucchini Apple Crumble

1/2 Zucchini

1/2 crisp apple

1 tbsp margarine

2 tbsp oats

1 tbsp dark brown sugar

1 tbsp slivered almonds

1/2 tsp Saigon cinnamon


Cut the zucchini and the apple in thin slices and place in a baking tray. I used two really small ones and a medium sized one. Just adjust the amount of apple and zucchini to the tray of your size.

Mix margarine, sugar, nuts and cinnamon and sprinkle it on top. Bake in a 200C oven until golden brown on top. Mine took approx. 15min. Enjoy!

    I am impressed how you came up with this. It is a wonderful combination, one, I plan to make, hopefully very soon. It sounds delicious with the sweetness.

    Zucchini and apple… That is a very creative combo… Would totally have enjoyed this sweet crisp too!

    I love apple crisp but I’ve never had it with zucchini. Sounds interesting.
    BTW I wanted to send you a message regarding the Power Foods blog group but I don’t have your email. You can contact me at Mireya (at) (I was missing a letter in the word healthy and that’s why your email was returned.

      Ok this email came back too 😦 I would love to participate but we are packing boxes, go on vacation for 5 weeks and then move into a new house. I may not be able to join you until the fall. I will check and see if the book is not packed up yet and will play it by ears …
