Speaking of zucchini and the cooking world. . . I love that it’s so versatile. It’s a rather bland tasting vegetable that takes on the flavor of anything you cook with it. We use it to make pizza crust, grain-free lasagna, and don’t forget the breads, muffins, and cakes (like one of my favorites: Chocolate Zucchini Cake).
But my go-to, I-would-eat-this-every-day-if-I-could recipe is a very simple zucchini and garlic saute. With butter.
Because everything is better with butter. Trust me.
2 T. unsalted butter (you can use coconut oil for a casein-free option)
2. Place slices into a frying pan and add minced garlic. Cut butter into thin slices and lay on top of zucchini.
4. Once the butter and water (cooks out of the zucchini) start to bubble and boil just a bit, remove from heat and leave the lid on. Let it sit for about ten minutes, letting the steam finish cooking them until they’re tender-crisp.
5. Salt generously with real celtic sea salt and eat immediately. This recipe would work great with yellow summer squash as well.
