In Ohio, right about now, you can grow a zucchini the size of your arm. Well, most people can. I can’t. But, people like to give these away. So, I was gifted a giant, arm-sized zucchini. And this delicious, SUPER simple, and healthy side dish was born.
You will need your giant zucchini, an onion and a 1/2 head of garlic. Depending upon just how giant your zucchini is, you want to you 1/2 or the whole onion. I made used a whole. Put everything into your food processor on the shredding disk. If you don’t have a shredding disk, you can use a box grater. (When I cut mine, I like to slice off some of the middle where the seeds are, because it reminds me of pumpkin. I know, it’s weird. But there are a lot of seeds sometimes!)
Ok, put your shreds into a kitchen towel and squeeze out as much water as you can. Then, put about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan. Dump your all your shreds in there. Allow to simmer away for a few minutes, seasoning with salt and pepper. Drizzle a little extra olive oil over the top. Stir occasionally. It will take about 12-15 minutes to cook this through. And that is it. Super easy! Yum.
