“It can be tough to find a dish that will satisfy both a vegetarian and the meat eaters in our family without having to make two seperate meals. When zucchini, is abundant this is a great way to make everyone happy (when served with grilled chicken for those who want it). Drizzle with your favorite teriyaki sauce. This makes enough for four as a main dish or eight as a side”
