Easy, classically Mediterranean, this zucchini emerges from the broiler with a still somewhat firm texture, coated with a lemony glaze and flavored with sweet herbs. This is also good grilled over the coals in good weather. Try cutting this on the diagonal to make elongated oval slices, good for both broiling and grilling techniques.

Michael Simon says this dish is inspired by his mom, so of course it is Greek! Michael likes to leave the skin on the carrots because they really pick up the char well when the sugar in the carrots superheats in the pan. Dressing the carrots while they are hot allows them to soak up some of the vinaigrette. This works as an appetizer on it's own or as a side to roasted lamb or grilled fish.

Cat Cora says she loves the challenge of making Brussels sprouts irresistible. Her secret is to really let them caramelize in the brown butter. Keep them in the pan until the insides are tender and delicious! From Cat Cora's Kitchen cookbook.
