Hello everybody! I haven't forgotten my blog, even if I haven't posted much for ages... just not enough time! Let,s start cooking again with a very very easy recipe: I've been cooking carrots/zucchini nearly everyday for mostly 10 year now, as they're the vegetables my kids eat most easily, so I've tried them in every possible way: sautéed, steam-cooked, in soups, in pasta sauces, baked, stuffed... this time, I prepared a yummy variation of the sautéed version, with a crispy touch. Try it!

For 4

2 carrots

1 big courgette

1 slice of sandwich bread

1/4 onion
