Here's an impressive enough starter course or vegetarian main course to serve to guests when entertaining, but so delicious you may want to prepare it just for the family dinner. Breaded and fried zucchini slices are layered with peppery arugula, sliced tomatoes, and fresh figs, and then drizzled with a "dressing" made by blending cream cheese with garlic and other seasonings. It's a wonderful melange of tastes, textures, and temperatures.


  • 125 grams cream cheese
  • 50 grams soy (cooking cream, or half plain yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon thyme
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • cracked black pepper (to taste)
  • 1 zucchini (200 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons corn meal
