Zucchini is a popular summer squash low in calories and provides antioxidants and vitamins. Quick on the stove, it also has a sweet and juicy flavor. Available all year round it is popular in many cuisines.
I like to team it with other veggies and a light seasoning to retain its original taste. In this recipe I’ve used carrots which are lovely colored, nutritious and great on taste. Sesame seeds are a good source of minerals and fiber and hence a bunch of health benefits.
Ingredients (Serves 2):
• 2-3 Zucchinis sliced
• 2 Carrots sliced
• 1 red Onion chopped
• 4-5 cloves Garlic thin sliced
• ½ cup Parsley
• 1 tablespoon Sesame seeds
• 1 teaspoon Oregano
• Salt to taste
• Pepper to taste
• Oil to cook
Prep the veggies by thin slicing the zucchinis, carrots, onions and garlic. First dry roast the sesame seeds. Take a small pan and add the sesame seeds. Stir for about 5-6 minutes on medium heat and remove into a bowl.
Then heat oil in a skillet and add the chopped garlic, onions, carrots and zucchini. Stir and allow to cook till the veggies are soft. Add the parsley leaves, salt and pepper and mix well. Sprinkle oregano and the roasted sesame seeds on top. Serve hot! You can have it with any of your favorite breads or a nice soup to keep the whole meal light and healthy.
