This dish was a hit at my office potluck! As the other cooks suggested I added onions. I also doubled the garlic amount and added a small pinch of seasoned salt to bring out the flavors. I highly recommend this recipe! Read More

This was not very good. I served it wrapped in tortilla wraps with some sour cream and that seemed to help but I don't think that I will make this again. Sorry. Read More

Exceedingly nice recipe. You eat it and feel like you're glowing it's so healthy and delicious. Changes I have made include: more garlic using dried basil and oregano at the start and then adding the fresh herbs (basil and cilantro) at the very very end so they retain their flavor. Served with wild rice with butter lemon and cilantro it's absolutely devine. Read More

PERFECT!!! I didn't have fresh herbs used dry and everything was fine. I threw in a yellow squash and some halved black olives... I don't cook with salt and thought that this dish had so many great flavors it didn't need it. Fresh cracked pepper on top finished it off. I eat it in a bowl as a main dish. Read More

I have no idea how this turned out so well. It was incredible. I added some cayenne pepper it was so great. I have never had a veg dish this good! I always use mushrooms AND onions. This is not only a fav of mine but everyone who has tried it has loved it. I am not a "veg" person but this dish is incredible. YOU MUST TRY THIS!! Read More

This dish tasted fantastic once I tweaked it to my liking:) I added 3/4 cup of onion and sauted it with 3 garlic cloves in just 1 tbsp of olive oil. Once that browned up a bit I added fresh grated ginger:) then I cooked the recipe accordingly. After everything cooked up nice and hot I added a pinch of salt and pepper.

Delicious! Tailor ingredients to your preferences. I omitted oregano & cilantro increased garlic to 4 cloves and served with instant brown rice & Romano cheese. Very healthy since rice and legumes like garbanzo beans make a complete protein. My teenager liked it in a soft tortilla with mozzarella cheese. If you steam the zucchini in a large frying pan with a cover til crunchy you don't need to use a lot of olive oil. Took a sample to work and everyone wanted the recipe. Read More
