Seared summer vegetables

  • Clean and seed bell pepper, cut into bite-sized chunks. Peel and halve the onion. Cut the onion into slices. Heat a good dash of olive oil in a large pan. Add bell pepper and onion and sauté for 6 min. on medium heat.
  • Meanwhile, peel and slice 2 garlic cloves. Wash the zucchini and halve lengthwise. Cut into 0.5 cm thin slices. Add garlic and zucchini to the pan and fry for another 7-8 min. until lightly browned. Deglaze with balsamic vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Polenta and goat cheese

  • Add some milk under frequent stirring until you reach your preferred consistency afterwards. Season to taste with salt.
  • Crumble the goat cheese into a bowl. Keep the olive oil for serving.
