Sunburst Zucchini Recipe

Brother Ron Pickarski’s Book, Friendly Foods, is one of the best vegetarian cookbook’s out there.  While I do not advocate a vegetarian diet because it is not healthy, many veggie cookbooks are a great source of vegetable dishes.. Brother Ron Pickarski,is  a professional chef who is also a Franciscan brother

His book is amazing, I have made every recipe in it and they are all awesome.  I do not recommend the grain, tofu and tempeh recipes as soy and grains are highly toxic to humans…but all the veggie dishes are great.

Here is a summer squash recipe you will love!
