This is definitely a five star recipe; and it's really easy to prepare. I did a couple things differently. I saw no need to peel the zucchini, and as a result it was not mushy, but nice and crisp. The unpeeled zucchini also gave great color to the dish! I cooked the rice separately. I brought a 15 oz. can of Swanson's 97% chicken broth and added enough water to make two cups of liquid. To the 2 cups of boiling liquid I added a tsp. salt, and one cup of long grain rice and cooked the rice until it was just tender. After the vegetables finish cooking I combined them with the hot cooked rice. Then as a finishing touch, I added 3/4 cup of Monterey Jack(suggestion of a previous Reviewer). I've cooked "Zucchini Saute" twice to raving reviews. It's a very tasty dish!
This recipe is so delicious and healthy. I skip the oil entirely and just saute the onions (and garlic!) in water which makes this recipe pretty much fat free. I also double the rice so I can eat it as a main. Fantastic! (Some changes I've tried: You can easily substitute the zucchini with cucumber and Jen's "yogurt cheese dressing" (3 tbsp. yogurt 1 tbsp. prepared mustard 1 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese) is fantastic stirred throughout the dish. Yum!)
The receipe was simple yet delicious. It is inexpensive to make and clean up is easy with this one pot meal. My husband and I will definately prepare this one again! (Note Variation: I did not have fresh tomatoes so I used a can of diced tomatoes w/Italian herbs by Contadina that I had on hand).
Very easy and tasty! I sauteed the veggies until they were a little on the carmelized side which made the dish have great flavor. I didn't change the recipe at all and I loved it. I just added salt and pepper to taste at the end. I will def make this one again!
I felt like this recipe was very bland even after I made some adjustments. I substituted chicken broth for the water added fresh minced garlic oregano and garlic salt and it was still pretty bland. I followed the recipe exactly other than the seasonings.
