Bitter Melon, Zucchini, and Eggs
I have become a big fan of the healthy bitter melon and grow them in my garden. My only problem is that a lot of the really good recipes out there contain exotic ingredients that I don't normally have on hand. So I started creating my own simple recipes to complement this wonderful fruit. I hope you will enjoy. Cut into slices to serve.
Don't be scared off by word "bitter". The sharpness of the Cheddar cheese (I used medium) complements the bitter melon perfectly. My girlfriend who has been eating bitter melon all of her life didn't even know it was in there until I told her.
For those who want it more bitter, skip the step on salting the chopped bitter melon as this is also a technique for reducing the natural bitterness. I like to use Himalayan salt.
Cooking oil can be used instead of butter, if desired.
