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
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!
