  • Summary

    Food writer Anna Kovel came up with this recipe as a way to use the small zucchini attached to the zucchini blossoms she bought at the market. "This sort of kitchen economy is always important, and especially so when you have a small European refrigerator," she says. If you can't find small zucchini, slice larger ones crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces after boiling.

    Ingredients

    • Coarse salt
    • 6 small green, golden, or ridged zucchini (4 ounces each)
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 large cloves garlic, smashed
    • 2 small fresh chiles, such as Fresno, halved crosswise, seeded if desired
    • 1 cup dry white wine, such as Falanghina or Pinot Grigio
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 4 small sprigs mint
