I love zucchini. I also love zucchini bread. Unfortunately though, making gluten-free zucchini bread takes so much time, so I came up with this simpler alternative that's now one of my favorite go-to veggie dishes
What you'll need:
5 or 6 medium-sized zucchinis
1/2 cup of brown sugar
2 Tablespoons of butter
Yep, that's it!
First, chop up your zucchinis. Make sure that you wash them really well before hand otherwise the pesticides can make the skins taste really bitter. Gross. I know.
Place your butter in a large pan and heat on medium high until you start to see the butter get frothy and slightly brown
Add those chopped up zucchinis and give them a good swirl so that they're coated in butter
It's important to add the brown sugar pretty quickly. For some reason this makes the zucchinis start to sweat and more liquid in the pan means less burning!
Then, cover them up with a pot lid to help them steam a bit faster. If you have a lid that will fit over the entire pan, great! If not, don't worry about using a smaller one; it'll be just as effective
After about 3 minutes, take off the lid and give the zucchinis a good stir. If they're starting to soften, leave the lid off; if not though, then leave the lid on for a few more minutes
Now that the zucchini are no longer steaming, they'll start to cook down faster and get a bit more color. It's important to keep stirring them so that the sugar doesn't cause them to burn. I normally leave them on for another 5-10 minutes and just keep monitoring them. At this point, it's also a good idea to do a taste test and see if they have enough flavor for you. If not, add some more brown sugar!
Plate and serve
