Easiest Sauteed Zucchini Ever

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by echo echo

One of my mother's favorites for when she was rushed and wanted a vegetable side dish that was quick, simple and tasty. She didn't measure the soy sauce, just sprinkled it with the plastic "sprinkling top" (I don't know what else to call it) on the bottle, so I'm just guessing at the amount. These days, I use light (lower-sodium) soy sauce. If you like, jazz it up with the herb of your choice, but I like it just as is. (Occasionally I sprinkle with my favorite herb thyme.)

This was a quick and easy way to make zucchini. I also think it needs a bit more to it. Sesame oil? Red pepper flakes? Sesame seeds? It would be easy to spiff up. My husband really liked it. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
