  • 3 small to medium zucchini diced about 1 lb
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • Sea or kosher salt to taste
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • chopped fresh basil to taste


  • Over high-heat, heat a 12-inch skillet. Heat the oil till it shimmers. Toss the zucchini in the skillet and toss once to coat in the fat, then cook undisturbed for 3 minutes. Once more are added, toss again and continue to sautee for 3 minutes.
  • Make a well in center of pan. If the pan is dry, add a little olive oil. Finally, add the garlic. Stirring constantly for a minute, sautee the garlic till fragrant. Stir the garlic and zucchini together, then saute for 2 more minutes, then remove from heat. Season the dish with salt, pepper and fresh basil. Serve immediately.
