I love summer not only for the sun and a long day of light, but also for the abundance of delicious fragrant vegetables, fruits and fresh bright greens! How they smell, how they look, and what sweet tomatoes in the summer! Today I want to treat you to a delicious dish of zucchini, tomatoes and rice in the style of gratin. Today in the role of a crisp we'll have to make rice crispy in the mixture with the breadcrumbs.
This recipe is quite simple. For him, we will approach fresh zucchini and tomatoes.
On the Internet, books, online crispy crust and called gratin, and gratin. How-I don't even know.
Boil the rice until tender. We will approach a great long-grain rice (180 gr. turn in 360 gr. cooked.)
Zucchini and tomatoes cut into thin slices. The thinner you slice, the sooner our dish will be cooked.
Heat-resistant form grease with oil / fat and begin to spread layers of vegetables. Layer zucchini, salt and pepper. Layer of rice, salt, pepper, tomato layer, salt and pepper.
Next, take out the cooked rice. If you do not have ready rice, we will cook it together now.
Immediately advise you to cook it as much as possible. He stands great then in the Bank and waiting for his next hour. After all, rice is not only a crunchy topping for vegetables, you can cook, but also a million desserts. I made 200g. rice.
For the preparation of puffed rice take a long-grain rice, preferably parboiled.
2) boil Rice until ready, according to the instructions on the package. Do not add salt.
3) Spread the rice on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and send it to the oven to dry at a temperature of 80-60grad.
4) after a couple of hours, the rice is completely dry.
5) in a wide bowl, heat the vegetable oil for deep frying and fry for 5 seconds our rice. Suggest to fry it immediately in the metal. colander, and cover with the same, so as not to accumulate steam and oil is not sprayed.
6) Rice is thoroughly dried on paper towels
7) Sprinkle with powdered sugar and treat our little home sweet tooth.
8) Part 60 gr. we take away for sprinkling on vegetables, the rest is removed in a jar (I closed with a napkin and put it in the closet, for a week my rice moisture is not scored or how much).
Part of the mixture is covered with a layer of tomatoes.
I'm cooking gratin today for the whole family, and my husband can't live without meat, so on top of a layer of crispy breadcrumbs and rice, I spread a layer of minced meat. If you cook in a post, this step can easily skip. And with minced meat, and without it-very tasty vegetables.
The last layer beautifully spread zucchini with tomatoes. This beauty, of course, we will not see later, but it's so nice to work when the dish is beautiful at the initial stage.
Sleep surface the remnants of the crackers with rice, put in a preheated 180-200град. in 20-40 minutes You may ask:"Why such a spread in time?". Answer-we are too different all of the oven. And, if the electric oven top zucchini will be ready in 20 minutes (and inside, too) , in the gas with this will have to wait a little)))
But after this time-you have a delicious and hot second dish on the table with a fragrant crispy crust.
I kind of really like vegetables even in the cold. The zucchini so juicy, with the aroma of garlic and thyme... yummy.
