ADDICTIVE ZUCCHINI STICKS WITH RED ONION




SAUTEED ZUCCHINI STICKS WITH RED ONION
One of the more popular zucchini recipes on our Facebook has been sauteed zucchini sticks.  A very simple recipe.  However, many of our fans suggested adding onion.  I decided to use red onion and it added a pretty contrast and a definite flavor boost!  I have to say these zucchini sticks are even tastier with the addition of onion!  I will be making it this way in future. When there is an abundance of zucchini, it’s great to have an easy, quick recipe handy to take care of some of the surplus zucchini in a delicious way.

14 oz zucchini (397 g)
1 tbsp olive oil, OR bacon fat (30 mL)
1 medium red onion (about 1 cup (250 mL), chopped)
1 tbsp olive oil, OR bacon fat (15 mL)
1/2  tsp crushed garlic (bottled) (2 mL)
1/2  tsp salt (2 mL)
1/4  tsp seasoning salt, OR to taste (1 mL)
1/4  tsp black pepper (1 mL)
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, optional (30 mL)

Wash zucchini, cut off ends, and cut into 2 x 1/4 –inch (5 x 0.6 cm) matchsticks.

In large nonstick frying pan, over medium heat in 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil, stir fry onion until just beginning to soften. Add remaining olive oil to the onion and stir fry garlic 30 seconds.  Add zucchini and stir fry, turning occasionally until tender and browned in places.  Sprinkle with salt, seasoning salt and pepper; toss to coat well and stir fry briefly.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if using.  Serve immediately.
