“I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with a couple of zucchini that I needed to use up, so I just started cooking. I had every intention of adding other flavors when I started, but I tasted the dish once I got this far and decided this was all it needed! I like to ALMOST burn the veggies so they get that nutty fried-zucchini-like taste :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray (or if calories are not a factor, add a pat or 2 of butter or tbsp of olive oil). Add sliced onions and cook until softening and barely turning golden.
  2. Push onions to the sides of pan and spray middle of pan with more cooking spray or add more butter/oil if needed. Turn heat to high and add zucchini to middle of the pan. Don't stir it for a couple of minutes until it is searing very well. Once it starts to sear a deep brown, stir and flip pieces so the other side browns. You still want the veggies to be a bit crisp-tender.
  3. Add sherry and stir to deglaze pan.
  4. Stir all veggies together and reduce heat to med-low. If you like really well done veggies, you could cover with a lid and allow to steam for a minute or two at this point. Otherwise, add garlic salt, salt and pepper to taste and serve.
