Minted zucchini is a lovely and simple vegetable dish, and it’s a perfect side for grilled lamb or fish. It’s a wonderful addition to your plate for a Mediterranean-inspired meal. This pairing is especially great in the summer, when zucchini and mint are freshest and might pop up in your CSA basket. You could use any cooking oil in this recipe, but the coconut oil flavor is really complementary in this dish.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add coconut oil and zucchini.
- Saute zucchini until soft and just starting to brown, about 5-6 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add mint and continue to cook for 1 minute.
