Zucchini Recipe with Tomatoes and Onions

sauteed zucchini

This zucchini recipe is extremely satisfying and can be used as a side or as a light meal. It is vegan and tremendously tasty. It is also very easy and quick to make. What else can one ask for?

It is important that the pan you are cooking these in is very hot and that your pan is large enough to fit all the vegetables comfortably. You want to be able to move the veggies around while cooking them.

Please make sure you do not over-cook the vegetables. You want them to be cooked through but to retain some crunch in them. Nothing worse than vegetable mush.

Here is what you are going to need for this great zucchini recipe:

Serves four

2 medium zucchinis – sliced
1 medium white onion – sliced
2 large tomatoes – diced
3 garlic cloves – minced
Dry thyme
Dry Rosemary
Salt & Pepper
Olive oil

Heat a large skillet with some olive oil. Wait until the pan is hot – about 1 minute. Add the zucchini, onions, garlic and tomatoes – without overcrowding the pan. You need room to move your vegetables so use an adequate skillet.

Season with thyme, Rosemary, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally or flipping, until zucchini is cooked through and onion is translucent – about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

    You can turn this into a more substantial meal by adding chicken and pasta. I use greek seasoning on the chicken and top it with feta and it is delicious!
