Happy Nom Nom Monday. Today we have more zucchini. This time sautéed. Perfect veggie dish for a summer meal. We had the Sautéed Zucchini with burgers and homemade french fries.
- 1 medium sized zucchini
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- salt and pepper
I cut the zucchini up into very thin slices. Or at least as thin as I could manage. The thinner they are the quicker they'll cook. Then I heated up a medium sized frying pan with half the olive oil. Minced and sautéed the garlic in the heated pan. After a minute I added the zucchini slices, and the rest of the olive oil. I let it cook for a couple minutes and then seasoned. I used Krazy Jane's Mixed Up Salt and McCormick's Ground Black Pepper. I covered the pan and cooked until they were throughly cooked, or almost see through. About six more minutes.
I used some straight sea salt too, because I'm salt crazy. I definitely went overboard with the salt. If I ignored the salt though, it was a great flavor. I'm thinking this is the best way to cook up zucchini. The zucchini slices tasted great wrapped around the french fries! I want to try this again with the appropriate amount of salt.
Hope ya'll have a great start to your week, and happy DIYing, chris!
