Heart Healthy Recipe Feature: Sauteed Zucchini Coins

Sauteed Zucchini Coins

Dietitian’s tip:

Instead of breaded and fried, these zucchini slices are lightly sauteed and tossed with herbs. This reduced-fat version also features olive oil, which is mainly monounsaturated fat.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 2 cups thinly sliced yellow zucchini
  3. 2 cups thinly sliced green zucchini
  4. 1 teaspoon dill weed
  5. 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  6. 2 scallions, chopped
  7. 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

In a large, nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the zucchini slices and saute until their colors intensify, about 5 minutes. Add the dill, cilantro and scallions and stir until evenly mixed. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve immediately.
