Z is for Yummy Zucchini with Onions

          Today I am combining my Y and Z posts because I missed yesterday. Since I am still in pain, this a short recipe, but has great flavors. Another plus to this is that it cooks very fast. I make this all the time because zucchini is a family favorite.
It is amazing how many ways you can
prepare fresh zucchini.

         To make zucchini this way, all you need is a few ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. This is my favorite way to eat zucchini; simply sauteed with some onions. This is how I make it:

3 zucchinis, halved lengthwise and then quartered
1 large yellow onion
3 cloves garlic
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper
onion powder
garlic powder
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

          Start off by heating a pan with oil on medium heat. Slice the onion and add it in along with the red pepper flakes. Mince and add the garlic 2-3 minutes later. Let it cook until the onions are just less than translucent. Mix in all of the zucchini. Add in the rest of the seasonings, in the amount of your preference. Cook until the zucchini is to your liking. Personally, my family likes it on the soft side, but many people prefer it to be more firm.  I often serve this with chicken cutlets or steak.

          I would just like to give a big thank you to all of the people who have read and commented on my posts. The A to Z Challenge was exactly that. I had to overcome a few obstacles, but I did finish and I am happy that I did not give up. Although it was very challenging I really enjoyed participating and am excited for next year!


  1. Sorry you're still in pain. That dish sounds like a great combination.

  2. I love zucchini and make this very recipe.

    Thanks Faith, for another wonderful A to Z Challenge. You did a great job once again. I hope your shoulder heals up and you are feeling fine soon. You are really turning into a great writer/blogger. Keep up the good work. I'm already looking forward to your posts for next year.

  3. This sounds amazing. I'll be trying this soon.

    Hope you're feeling better. You did a great job with the challenge. I failed at it, so I am a great respecter of you hardy souls who survived. Applause for you!!

  4. Hello there.
    Hope you are feeling better today. We love zucchini too, but I usually roast them in the oven with a bunch of other vegetables. The flavour once cooked is so sweet and delicious.
    Congratulations on surviving the A-Z Challenge! I didn't get to visit your blog during the crazy month of April so I'm popping over today from the Road Trip. My goal is to visit all the blogs that linked up, before next year's challenge starts up again.
