Pan Fried Zucchini & Basil

Pan Fried Zucchini & Basil


This recipe calls to mind late night meals during my college semester abroad in Rome, enjoying delicious antipasti with friends. It is such a simple vegan recipe packed with so much flavor. It tastes great on its own or mixed with your favorite gluten-free pasta.



RECOMMENDATIONS

  • This recipe “sweats” the zucchini with salt to remove excess moisture before pan frying. The salting process will reduce any sogginess due to zucchini’s high moisture content.
  • Small zucchini work best since they don’y have as many seeds and the texture will be more firm.
