Easy Stewed Zucchini With Feta

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

Talk about cheating!! I was a waitress for 16 years in New York diners. One of my favorite veggie sides was stewed zucchini, (the Greek chefs made this daily). Well, this is just as good and so easy. This is also my first post. Hope you like it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 -6 zucchini (slice lengthwise in fours and then cut into nice size bite sized chunks, I keep the skin on)
  • 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic (I used jarred)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar chunky salsa (I use medium spiced)
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms (I used presliced)
  • 34 cup feta (medium size crumbles)


  1. Wash and cut zucchini (see above).
  2. Heat a large fry pan with olive oil and garlic.
  3. Add zucchini and cook over med/high heat just long enough to toss to coat with oil and add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Add jar of salsa, stir, cover and heat on medium/low until just crisp.
  5. Add mush and feta and cook until heated through but still crispy.

I found this recipe looking for a way to use up garden-fresh zucchini. I halved the recipe, threw in some leftover onions and banana peppers with the zucchini, and eyeballed the rest. Great, spicy dish and I like the combination of salsa and feta. Thanks for sharing!

Loved it! I had to leave out the mushrooms becuase I'm allergic to them, and I did make my own salsa which could have been a little thicker I think (my fault entirely) not the recipes, but the end result was very nice indeed. A very tasty zucchini dish indeed. I used about 1 heaped teaspoon of hot jalapeno pepper minced in my salsa and it was peppy enough that I was glad that I hadn't been tempted to add more. Please see my rating system: a wonderful 4 stars for a recipe thatI will gladly make again. Thanks!
