Ingredients

  • 2 medium-size zucchini
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Cut the zucchini into disks that are about ½ inch thick. If the disks are larger than mouth size, then cut them into quarters.
  • Give the onion a rough chop.
  • Heat the vegetable oil and butter in a large skillet on medium heat on the stovetop until the butter is melted and the oil/butter starts to glisten.
  • Add the zucchini, onion and garlic to the oil and cook until the squash becomes soft enough for your tastes (for me - that is about 5-6 minutes).
  • Add salt and pepper to taste - serve hot and with salt and pepper offered on the table.
