Lemon Buttered Zucchini

Lemon Buttered Zucchini

Great base – My absolute loyaly to Womens Weekly Yr 2000 Cook Book  with some Sandy variations to follow…… 🙂


3 medium sized zucchini

60g butter

1 medium brown onion sliced

1 large clove garlic crushed

2 tablespoons lemon juice



  • Using a vegetable peeler, cut zucchini into long ribbon-like
  • Melt butter in a medium sized saucepan – add onion and garlic stirring until onion is soft.
  • Add zucchini; cook stirring until it is just soft.
  • Stir in lemon juice,  and serve  🙂


Some ….. Sandy Ideas   🙂

  • Add some flaked Parmesan cheese to top for serving
  • Prepare butter, garlic and onion in the saucepan… add the zucchini and carrot only long enough to cover the ribbons with the butter and serve as a salad.
  • Adding to that idea – add some herbs of choice – (mint, basil, parsley,..) some flaked Parmesan cheese, or crumbled Feta cheese…. some walnuts or  roasted pine nuts…
  • If we are doing salad…. what out ribbons of rock-melon too ….


  • and …. excellent recipe for Zucchini based (replacement styled) pasta if you are lucky enough to have a spaghetti peeler.

So many ideas from one little recipe base – Hope you get to enjoy this – 🙂

That’s about all the ideas for these last few  minutes – I’d love your comments or suggestions – thanks Sandy
