Okay, I know I get excited about food but really, there are only so many things I get really excited about. Well, besides the Moroccan Mash, Kale Chips, Cauliflower pizza crust, okay, I guess I could keep going. But really, this is one of my new favorite sides and can’t wait to make it again. I don’t know if it’s the warmth of the sauteed zucchini mixed with the creamy avocado but this was absolutely heavenly.
Here’w what you need:
- 3-4 zucchini
- 1 tbsp ghee (or butter)
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1/2 lemon juice
- 10 cherry tomatoes
- handful of fresh basil
- celtic sea salt (about 1/4 tsp)
Next, in a pan on high heat, add 1 tbsp of ghee and saute the zucchini and celtic sea salt. Continue to stir every couple of minutes so it doesn’t burn, but you want it to get brown. It will take longer than you think to get brown (not sure it will get brown if you don’t squeeze the water out) so be patient. It will probably take 15 or minutes. Once done, set aside.
Now, cut your avocado in half, de-pit it and mash until creamy. Next, chop up and add your tomatoes and basil, and then squeeze your lemon juice in the avocado bowl and stir. Lastly, add the warm zucchini to the dish, stir and enjoy immediately.
I promise it tastes better than it looks, waaaay better. Well…looked!
