Gad Zukes! Shredded Zucchini!
Difficulty Rating: Easy
This is great for using up that extra zucchini from your garden as well as pleasing your people. Nutmeg is the secret ingredient. It looks gourmet but it's easy. And it's pretty healthy to boot!
6 small zucchini (you can also add a cup of shredded, peeled carrots for color if you wish)
2 T butter
6 green onions
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese (optional)
Shred zucchini with a large size shredder or food processor with a coarser shredding disk. Drain on paper towels for a few minutes. Place zucchini in a large saucepan or skillet with butter and green onions. Turn on high heat and toss zucchini mixture until just heated through. Remove from heat and season to taste with salt, pepper, and freshly ground nutmeg. Serve immediately, sprinkling with Parmesan cheese if you wish.
