Came across this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens magazine from January 1980. This recipe is so easy! I added a couple of optional additions.

Cooking of optional rice, is done ahead, and is not counted in cooking time. If using instant rice, you could do it, while prepping vegetables.

How to Make Zucchini Veggie Melange

  2. Heat oil in medium skillet. Add onion and garlic, and sauté for 5 mins. Add remaining ingredients including liquid, if using; cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Add cooked rice; add more liquid, if needed, if you are using a liquid. Cook 5 minutes more, or until vegetables are tender.
  3. Makes 4 servings. Each serving about 80 calories, without rice and broth or juice.
