Far East Zucchini is a delicious mix of fresh zucchini tomato onion and other garden vegetables, lightly steamed with cheese and bacon on top. You can throw in some eggplant too if you have it. I have no idea why this recipe is called Far East Zucchini. There are no exotic spices added that would lend an air of the Far East, nor are there any exotic vegetables. But that is what we have always called it. It is a light summer dish that uses almost everything from the garden. Since we like our vegetables crisp, this recipe cooks quickly in a hot solar oven.
