I opened my fridge one evening to find a whole bunch of zucchinis. What to make?… what to make… I decided to throw this concoction together. It’s kind of like a ratatouille, except that it’s only zucchini and onions. The chopping will take you a few minutes, but with a good knife, it’s virtually effortless. You can serve this over rice or as a stand-alone salad.



1 large onion, diced
6 c peeled and diced zucchini
8 oz. tomato sauce
3 Tbsp olive oil
¼ – ½ tsp salt
½ tsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp of sugar (or 2 packets of a sugar substitute, like splenda)


1. Stirring occasionally, sauté the onion until it is translucent and golden.

2. Add the zucchini and let it cook in a covered pot until it is softened.

3. Remove lid, add the tomato sauce and stirring occasionally, simmer until liquid is reduced, about 30 minutes.
