Here’s a super-simple way to dress up zucchini from Wanda Penton of Franklinton, Louisiana. Asian flavor and sesame seed crunch make this side dish a treat to eat! Tip Idea: Yellow summer squash could be substituted for some of the zucchini.
- 2 small zucchini
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1-1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
- Dash salt and pepper
- Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise and then into 1/2-in. slices. Place in a steamer basket; place in a small saucepan over 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 5-7 minutes or until tender.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the oil, lemon juice, sesame seeds, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Transfer zucchini to a serving bowl; drizzle with sesame mixture and toss to coat. Yield: 2 servings.
