garlicky seared zucchini

a tasty quick side dish
Zucchinis are bountiful this time of year - why not use them for a side dish with your meals? This one is easy, quick and brings out the sweetness of the zucs.

what you need:
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • canola oil
  • salt & pepper
what to do:
  1. Smash cloves of garlic and chop roughly.  Slice zucchini on an angle, about 1/3" thick.
  2. In a non-stick pan, heat up about 1 tbsp of oil on medium heat.
  3. Add garlic.  Once you smell the aromas of garlic, place zucchini into the pan to sear.  Do not over crowd pan or they won't brown.
  4. In about 1-2 minutes, flip zucchini to sear the other side.  Sprinkle lightly with a pinch of salt and pepper.  Serve and enjoy!
