Sauteed Zucchini With Nutmeg

Total Time
Prep 7 mins

A unique side dish for most any meal. You can either use a food processor to shred the zucchini, or use a box grater, like I did.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add the shredded zucchini.
  2. Sautee the zucchini, stirring frequently,until zucchini is cooked through but not too mushy.
  3. Lower heat, add the nutmeg, salt and pepper (Nutmeg is a very strong spice and you really don't need any more than the 1/8 teaspoon).
  4. Stir the spices into the zucchini and serve.

This was a huge hit at our house, we had no leftovers, and a couple of people were disappointed that we ran out so soon. Simple and easy to make , except for the shredding, if I ever get a food processor then it should be a breeze.

We really enjoyed this. The nutmeg adds a really nice flavour to the zucchini. I will definitely be cooking zucchini this way again. This is a keeper. Thanks for posting.
