Olive oil

2 tsp, extra-virgin

Uncooked zucchini

2 medium, cut into large chunks

Red onion

1 small, thinly sliced

Grape tomatoes

1 cup(s)

Table salt

¼ tsp, or to taste

Black pepper

tsp, or to taste

Jarred minced garlic

1 tsp


cup(s), leaves, roughly torn


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add zucchini and onion, cook, stirring occasionally, until zucchini and onion are golden and tender, about 5 to 8 minutes (don’t be tempted to stir too often, the zucchini needs to get nice and golden brown).
  2. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper; cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, just until tomatoes start to soften, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add garlic; cook over medium heat, tossing, just until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in basil. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.
