Eat– for Good Health

Writing deep point of view means delving into all the senses a character sees and feels, but it also includes what they do.  My heroine Amy Kintyre is a sportswear designer who hikes and eats healthy.  Something she would make is Vegetarian Zucchini Moussaka:

Ingredients:  2  zucchini, 1 small onion, 1.5 T. olive oil, 1 cup dry bulgur, 4 cups tomatoes (canned, crushed) 1 oz. water, 4 oz. lowfat cottage cheese, 1 T. parmesan cheese grated, 1 cup chopped parsley, fresh, and 1 large egg, raw.

1/2 cup mashed potatoes.

Directions for 4 servings:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Wash zucchini, peel onion, chop both and sauté.

In another pan mix olive oil and bulgur and sauté over medium heat until brown. Add the remaining ingredients, turn heat low so that bulgur soaks up the liquid.

Lightly beat the egg.  Mix in cottage cheese and fresh parsley.  Assemble all together into an oven-proof dish.  Top with a dollop of mashed potatoes. Bake for thirty minutes.  Serve with pepper.
