It is Zucchini flower season here in Europe! This also leads to quick, easy side dishes. What quicker way that to pan sear this delicious and uncomplicated veggie?
Cut the zucchini in half and half again.
In a large sautee pan spread the zucchini out so it can brown.
Add 1 tablespoon diced fresh garlic and a tablespoon of sunflower oil (or butter) to your pan.
Spread the zucchini out and let it brown.
Do not salt while cooking and keep the skin on.
When it starts to brown, turn it over and cook through.
What’s great about this side dish is that it takes 10 minutes start to finish, and you can add tomatoes, almond slices, mushroom or even spring onions to the mix!
By adding a protein, you can make it a meal!
When it’s done add the spice – go with salt. Or how about a curry dusting?! Lebanese or even Cajun seasoning – there are no rules! Chickpeas also go great with this easy Mediterranean side!
