Carol's StoryNext time you're looking for an EASY veggie side to round out your dinner, try this! Prep/cook time will total about 10 minutes! The amounts of all ingredients are subject to change, depending on how much you love them, or how many people you are serving; it's not an exact science. These are all ingredients I usually have on hand, but you could swap these 3 for your personal favs; just keep the zucchini! I have used yellow squash, sweet bell peppers, or white button mushrooms.
zucchini (increase for more servings)
sweet yellow onion
Monterey Jack cheese (optional, but good!)
salt & pepper to taste
1Heat large skillet over medium to med-high heat. While it's heating, rinse zucchini and slice into quarter inch slices. Do the same with the onion and mushrooms, a little thinner for the onion.
2When pan is hot, add oil. Starting with onions, saute until they begin to get soft, 2-3 minutes.
3Next, add sliced zucchini, salt and pepper and stir. Cook for another 3-4 minutes until zucchini is noticeably softer and starting to brown on edges.
4Lastly, add sliced mushrooms and cook another 2-3 minutes. All veggies should still be slightly firm. Turn off heat, leaving skillet on burner, and top with cheese (optional) until it melts over the veggies. Serve. You can add crushed or minced garlic, garlic powder, fresh herbs...whatever you like and have on hand. Enjoy! It's simple and delish!
