  • About


  • 3 zucchini
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large sprigs fresh basil


Morning or Evening

Cut the zucchini into rounds ⅛ inch (3 mm) thick and mince the garlic. If doing this in the morning, put both in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate.


In a large skillet or sauté pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When it shimmers, add the zucchini and garlic and spread out in the pan. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and cook, undisturbed, for 3 minutes. Flip and cook for 3 minutes, then flip again and cook for 3 more minutes, or until the zucchini is nicely browned and just tender. Tear in the basil and serve.
