To keep this recipe healthy, zucchini slices are tossed with herbs and sauteed, rather than breaded and fried.

Ingredients

(Serves 4)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups thinly sliced yellow zucchini
  • 2 cups thinly sliced green zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

In a large, nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the zucchini slices and saute until their colors intensify, about 5 minutes. Add the dill, cilantro and scallions and stir until evenly mixed. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve immediately.
