Sautéed Cucumbers

All You FEBRUARY 2009

  • Yield: 8 Servings
  • Cost Per Serving:$.44

Ingredients

  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 large cucumbers (about 8 oz. each)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint

Preparation

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Peel cucumbers, halve lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Cut each half lengthwise into three pieces. Drop into boiling water, bring back to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Drain.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add blanched cucumbers and stir or toss until just tender and warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. (Do not overcook, as this makes cucumbers bitter.) Stir in mint, season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
