I didn’t, but they summoned me, when I went to the Farmer’s Market in Princeton this Saturday. Looking so gorgeous that I couldn’t resist, and as soon as I came back they ended up in the spotlight of my camera.

They are Patty Pans, or in Polish Patisons, or french pâtisson, but they have many, many names in English. They belong to the squash family and are notable for their small size. They come in different colour versions from white through green to yellow. Rich in magnesium, niacin, potassium, vitamin A and C*.

I have never tried those before, so the recipe was an experiment, a quite successful experiment :D Let me know if you liked it!


-4 patty pans;
-6-7 tablespoons of olive oil;
-chopped almonds, as many as you want. I used about 20. (Sorry my kitchen weight stayed in Denmark, so I can’t give you the amount in grams).
-salt and pepper.

The magic: – Easy peasy again!

Preheat the oven to 375F(190C). In a bowl, mix the chopped almonds, olive oil, salt & pepper. Put each patty pan in an aluminium baking foil, and pour in 1/4 of the almond sauce and wrap tight. Bake for about 25min.
