One more thing to do with all that zucchini from the garden. This is a quick, good, and easy side dish that can be served with a weeknight family meal as well as a fancy dinner. Goes great with grilled chicken or even a nice snack on its own.

Delicious flavor, although the size of the zucchini pieces was entirely too large for my taste. I cut them smaller and used the juice from 1/2 a fresh lemon instead of 1 T. as called for.

I loved it! Easy and tasty, too. For 4 small zucchinis I used 1 teaspoon flour and I also halfed the soy sauce. The result was a lemony taste side dish, to go along with a burger I had. Now I have one more great side dish for the summer! Thanks for sharing!
