I had eaten thin slices Zucchini at a restaurant not too long ago and it gave me an idea to slice the Zucchini even thinner to make a noodle like dish. I tried it out once and it was a hit with my kids, so I did it again with the same results.
I decided to call this side, Zucchini Noodles.
If you would like to recreate this dish, you will need:
2 Zucchinis Shredded
1 tbsp of Olive Oil
1/4 tsp of Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp of Onion Powder
1/4 tsp of Salt
The dish serves around 4 to 5 people.
First shred the zucchini with a peeler and use the skin as well. (Be careful not to cut to close to your hands) Add all of this to a pan. FYI, I end up with a middle piece of Zucchini and the kids like to eat this raw.
Next, add the Olive Oil, Garlic, Onion, and Salt. Stir and cook this on Medium Heat for around 7 minutes. Move to low until ready to serve.
That is all its takes to make this dish, and it cooks up quick. I also like it because it is yummy, a vegetable, and my kids gobble it up.
I also think they like the idea of eating “Zucchini” Noodles.
Do you make a similar dish? If so, do you add any additional ingredients?
If you try this out, let me know what you think.
