wiawloveyourveggiesmonthbutton2 WIAW is hosted by Peas & Crayons

This month Jenn has challenged the WIAW’ers to VEG-ify our posts.
{Talk about our favorite vegetables, share our go-to cooking/prep methods for veggies, talk about how to eat more veggies/fruit, or any other veggie-centric topics we can think of.}

Today’s photos are from Wednesday February 22nd.

So far I’ve shared my favorite vegetables and tips for eating more veggies {and fruit}.  This week I thought I would share my go-to cooking method for ZUCCHINI.  I love zucchini but I don’t like to eat it raw … unless it’s dipped into some yummy goodness like ranch, or hummus, or … anything.  Just not raw {unless it’s on a salad smothered in dressing!}.  I do, however, really enjoy to eat cooked zucchini.  Here are some of my favorite ways to cook it:

  • grilled on the BBQ
  • sautéed with some olive oil and sea salt
  • broiled

Yum, yum, yum!

What is your favorite way to enjoy zucchini?
