Simple Braised Zucchini Recipe

Simple Braised Zucchini Recipe

Helen and Scott Nearing literally wrote the book on the joys of living simply, and this gem of a squash dish has all the flavors and virtues of their sustainable lifestyle. It is a delectable tribute to them and their way of cooking fresh, seasonal food both simply and deliciously.

You’ll love the no-measurements-needed ease of this fun and tasty recipe!

1. Cut scrubbed zucchini or summer squash into 2-inch chunks.

2. Saute a few onions in oil in a large heavy-bottomed skillet.

3. Add squash, a couple of cut-up tomatoes, and a handful of chopped fresh parsley.

4. Simmer uncovered for half an hour.
