2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the mixed vegetables

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Cut the fennel lengthwise into quarters and cut away the core; thinly slice the quarters lengthwise.
  • Cut the mushrooms in half lengthwise; cut any large mushrooms into quarters.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and fennel, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, tomatoes, and umami seasoning and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and season to taste with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.
While the vegetables cook, prepare the squash and vinaigrette.


Prep and cook the squash; make the vinaigrette

  • Lay the squash flat; using a peeler, shave the squash lengthwise into thin ribbons. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the lemon vinaigrette base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.
In the same pan used for the mixed vegetables, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the squash ribbons, season with salt and pepper, and cook until just starting to soften and turn translucent, about 1 minute. Transfer to a medium bowl and toss with half the vinaigrette (set aside the remaining vinaigrette for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the squash cooks, prepare the parsley and the ciabatta.


Prep the parsley; toast the ciabatta

  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
  • Cut the ciabatta in half horizontally; drizzle or brush the cut sides with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and season with salt.
Heat a dry medium [large] frying pan over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Place the ciabatta, cut sides down, and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes.


Transfer the squash ribbons to individual bowls and top with the mixed vegetables. Drizzle with the remaining vinaigrette, garnish with the parsley, and serve with the ciabatta toasts.
