Sautéed Zucchini

Sautéed Zucchini

Zucchini sautéed with parsley and garlic.

This way of preparing vegetables with parsley and garlic, called «al verde», is typical in the area of Italy where I was born: Liguria. If your parsley and garlic base is made in advance, this tasty dish will be ready in no time.

Before you start

A mandolin will make slicing the zucchini easier.


  1. Prepare the zucchini. Slice them into 3-4 mm rounds.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the parsley and garlic base. Add the zucchini rounds and cook 5 min uncovered, stirring frequently.
  3. Add salt and pepper, cover, and cook on low heat about 8-10 min, or until the zucchini is soft, but still a bit al dente.
