Here’s a lovely vegetarian, single-serving meal that can also stand-in as a side dish to accompany roasted Greek chicken or pork. The fresh mint pairs beautifully with the tangy feta cheese but basil or oregano would also work well in this skillet recipe. Branch out and experiment using yellow squash or eggplant in the place of the zucchini, or you might even try substituting the cannellini beans for the chickpeas. Make sure you use jarred kalamata olives that have already been pitted to save on prep time. You can find them at most major grocery stores chains on the condiment aisle alongside the other olive varieties.
