4 teaspoons Stacey Hawkins Roasted Garlic Oil (or vegetable oil of your choice)
- 1/2 C red onion, sliced
- 3 C fresh zucchini, cut into 1/2″ chunks
2 1/2 C cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
- 1 T Stacey Hawkins Simply Brilliant Seasoning (or fresh garlic & fresh squeezed lemon to taste)
- fresh basil as garnish, if desired
In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat.
Add onions and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring continually to keep them from browning. They should be soft and translucent before continuing.
Add the zucchini and tomatoes. Sprinkle with seasoning and stir to combine. Cook for 5 minutes, until zucchini are crisp-tender and tomatoes have just started to collapse, making a sauce.
Season to taste with salt and pepper or Dash of Desperation Seasoning.
Transfer to a serving dish, and serve hot OR chill and serve as a cold salad.
