Zucchini slices are lightly sauteed and tossed with herbs instead of being breaded and fried. This recipe also uses olive oil, which is mainly monounsaturated fat.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cups thinly sliced yellow zucchini
- 2 cups thinly sliced green zucchini
- 1 teaspoon dill weed
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
- 2 scallions, chopped
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
In a large, nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the zucchini slices and saute until their colors intensify, about 5 minutes. Add the dill, cilantro and scallions and stir until evenly mixed. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve immediately.
