This was a WONDERFUL side dish! I really liked the flavour. I made it without the pine nuts and cardamom, and used cooking spray instead of oil, but it still turned out great. I used a Granny Smith apple (unpeeled), but next time I think I'll use a red-skinned apple to give a colour contrast with the green-skinned zucchini. Great recipe, I will definitely be making this again and again!
Why haven't dozens of people discovered this? This was an absolutely wonderful side dish! I just loved it. Perfect side dish for one of the first days we've had that feels (just a little) like autumn. The only change I made was to use almonds instead of pine nuts, and to increase 'em to 1/4 cup. Didn't peel the apple, and that was just fine. This is a keeper -- thanks for posting!
