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 are cooking, prepare the ciabatta.


Toast the ciabatta

  • 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. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the squash and parsley; cook the squash

  • Lay the squash flat. Trim and discard the round end. Holding the stem end secure, using a peeler, shave the squash lengthwise into thin ribbons. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.

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. Remove from the heat and stir in half the Italian vinaigrette, adding more to taste. 


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