After trying for a year or more, to get my kids to try/eat Zucchini in something other than chocolate cupcakes or muffins, I gave this delicious recipe a try and was surprised to actually see several of them eating it and getting seconds. It’s hard to find recipes for vegetables that aren’t “normal” in a kids world. If they had their choice they would pick corn or mashed potatoes every night. But this recipe is totally different. It’s awesome. It helps that I am a sucker for fresh vegetables, but truth be told – it’s delicious anyway. And they ate it!
Zucchini Mozzarella Medley
3 c. zucchini
1 c. chopped onion (I removed the onion pieces before serving so the kids would eat it)
1 minced garlic clove
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
4 Tbs. butter
1 tomato cut into wedges
1 1/2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
In a pan, saute zucchini, onion, minced garlic and all of the seasonings in the butter until the zucchini is crisp-tender.
Gently stir the tomato wedges into the zucchini. Sprinkle with the cheese. Remove the pan from heat and cover. Let sit for about 2 minutes for the cheese to melt.
Remove from pan and serve from a pretty bowl – SO good! Try it!
