Last weekend my mom came to visit and brought me goodies from her two large organic vegetable gardens. We made a delicious slaw from a cabbage the first night she was in town and we’ve been enjoying the cucumbers and other delights throughout the week. Last night I decided to sauté up a few zucchini to go along with a pasta dish I was serving.
The resulting zucchini sauté was fabulous! It was simple and crisp and full of flavor! I highly recommend you try it.
Simple Zucchini Sauté
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 small zucchini
- 8 basil leaves
- zest of ½ lemon
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
In a sauté pan, heat olive oil and add one coarsely chopped onion and salt. Stir and halve then slice, on the diagonal, two zucchini. Once the onion has soften add the zucchini and basil. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, for about five minutes. Add the lemon zest and cayenne pepper. Stir and serve piping hot.
