Zucchini, Squash, Onions and Herbs

 Zucchini and squash have a much richer flavor when they have cooked to the point of turning slightly brown. The natural sugars in those veggies caramelizes for terrific flavor. Add the fresh herbs and look out!
A recipe for 6-8
2 medium zucchini sliced3 yellow squash sliced
1 medium onion diced
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper as needed
2-3 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
2-3 tablespoons fresh basil shredded

Place the zucchini, squash and onion in a bowl and coat with the olive oil. Season lightly with salt and pepper then either grill or roast until well browned. Meanwhile place the fresh herbs in the same bowl and set aside. When the vegetables are cooked toss in the fresh herb mixture adding additional seasoning as desired.

  1. I actually cook this! I've always used seasoned salt though. The herbs sound good! Next time, I'll cook it YOUR way :) Thanks for sharing so many good things!
