Have you been struggling to come up with new ideas for side dishes lately? Well, don’t fret, because the possibilities are endless and we’re here to suggest a simple, nutritious, and delicious option that you are sure to love: garlic-sauteed zucchini.

Here’s how to make it yourself!


  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese


First, you will want to wash your zucchini and slice it into pieces that are between a quarter and a half-inch thick.

Next, melt the butter in a large skillet on medium-low heat on your stove. Once you’ve done this, add the zucchini slices to the skillet and then add the garlic powder, salt, and black pepper and saute for 5-10 minutes. You’ll want to wait until the zucchini is soft and transparent.

Just before taking the skillet off of the heat, add the parmesan cheese and stir in to ensure that it is evenly distributed throughout the zucchini.

Allow to cool for a few minutes, and then serve and enjoy!
