*Zucchini Saute* (GF)


This is a tasty, simple veggie dish using up some of the abundant zucchini from the garden, or just an anytime veggie.  I have never had a vegetable garden, but I can imagine if I did, I'd want to grow zucchini.  That could be fun!  Veggies on a low-carb diet are mostly our good carbs and to make the meal well-rounded, interesting and tasty, make some fun veggie sides.

2 tbsp olive oil  (25 mL)
2 cups chopped onion (500 mL)
4 small zucchini, unpeeled and cubed, or
  cut into little wedges
1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
1/4 tsp black pepper (1 mL)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (1 mL)

In large saucepan, in olive oil, cook onion until tender.  Add zucchini, salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Saute until zucchini is heated through and tender crisp.  

Yield:  8 servings: 52.0 calories; 1.4 g protein; 3.1 g fat; 3.9 g carbs

Variation:  Saute onions and 1 cup (250 mL) sliced, raw mushrooms together. (4.3 g Carbs)

Zucchini is one of the most versatile veggies out there. Sometimes I just want to eat it by itself, call it a craving for something pure and healthy. This dish fits that craving perfectly-thanks for sharing.
