Hank’s Hankerings: Garlic Butter Sautéed Zucchini

By Hank the Burro

  June 1, 2022 --

YIELD: 4 servings



1-1/4 pounds chopped zucchini (2 medium)

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon minced garlic (3 cloves)

1 scallion, thinly sliced

1 to 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice or red wine vinegar, optional

1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan or pecorino cheese, optional

Salt and fresh ground black pepper



It’s up to you as to how you cut the zucchini. You can slice the zucchini into rounds, cut into half-moons or chop into bitesize pieces.

Melt the butter in a wide skillet over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini and garlic and cook, stir- ring occasionally until the zucchini is browned in places and tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

Turn off the heat, and then stir in the scallions, a squeeze of lemon juice, and cheese (if using). Taste, and then season with a pinch of salt and black pepper. Serve.


Alternatives to parmesan cheese include feta cheese, goat cheese, or a sharp cheddar.

Add in some extra crunch with toasted sliced almonds or buttery pine nuts.

Throw in chopped tomatoes with the zucchini and cook until the zucchini is crisp-tender, and the tomatoes collapse a little and release some of their juices.
