Easy Marinated Zucchini & Yellow Squash Side Dish for One

“This is one of the ways I like to cook up zucchini. People often think that zucchini and yellow squash are one in the same, just a different color, but I think zucchinis are chewier and tarter while yellow squash has a sweeter taste. But they both taste great together and also make for a pleasing dish to look at because of the way the colors pop out. Please note that measurements here are approximate except the olive oil; I just shook the spices on until they were coated.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash the zucchini and yellow squash, cut each in half. Slice the halves into rounds.
  2. Put them into a mixing bowl and pour in the olive oil, tossing well to coat.
  3. Sprinkle on the sea salt and thyme and toss well to coat again, making sure it's on evenly.
  4. Let the mixture sit for about 5-10 minutes to let the oil and flavors soak inches.
  5. Pour the zucchini and squash pieces into a large frying pan and sautee on medium-high heat for about 10 minutes, making sure to cook on both sides evenly. Cook until slightly browned, let cool for a few minutes, then serve and enjoy.
