Healthy Italian Style Zucchini and Tomato Stir Fry

"Delicious way to eat your veggies! I Love the flavors in this and my kids gobbled it up. We like to eat it over brown rice, but I think it would be nice on its own as well. Recipe created by hubby Jason."

    5 Stars, DH to plant zucchini next year so we can enjoy this often. Served this with poached tilapia and rice; this will be a frequent menu in our rotation (will make brown rice when time permits). Very simple to make. There were just enough Mexican spices (cumin, chili powder, and cayenne pepper) to give zip without overpowering. Forgot to add chopped walnuts this time, but that can only make this better. Yummy! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.

    What a lovely lunch this made. I choose no walnuts and used the bed of brown rice. There are no black olives in the house so I used green and that suited me fine. The other thing is that I used no oil at all and cooked the veggies in the broth. The seasoning was just right. Very tasty :D

Update: We've moved back to the states, and are experiencing the joys of living in Wenatchee, WA for the first time! I'm spending most of my time in the kitchen canning, freezing, and drying fruit now and loving it! We are a couple, Jason and Mollie, that loves to cook together. We have two wonderful DD's, Enjoli (9) and Emily (7) that make life so much more fun! I, Mollie, studied Nutrition so I try to make most of our meals healthy while still tasting great! Our girls love helping us cook...and eat! We're vegetarian and love eating healthy without missing any flavor! We try to eat mostly vegan, so we have many vegan recipes posted. We are world traveling missionaries and students that have visited many countries and have lived in the States, South Korea, and are currently in the Philippines. So we always need to adjust our menu based on the food available. Zaar has been a tremendous help! <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/385678/CIMG0152%20%282%29.JPG"> <img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa130/nowsonexitmusic/unratedpart.jpg"> <img src="http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/mm286/celticevergreen/indianbanner.jpg"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/KBparticipation.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa130/nowsonexitmusic/vegbannerbasetemp-small.jpg?t=1232859306"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/AMpageSticker.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa130/nowsonexitmusic/soupbanner-small.jpg?t=1227755026"> <img src="http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/flower753/Food/my3chefsnov2008.jpg"> <img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa130/nowsonexitmusic/turmerictag-small.jpg?t=1225271033"> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/123HitAMpage.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa130/nowsonexitmusic/mushroombanner-smallpic.jpg"> <img src="http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/4902/41213577264b44m3kh4.png"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/BreakfastanytimeSTCK.jpg"> <img src="http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t237/akplongmeadow/AdoptATag2-2-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/NZT-2-AnnaciasZaarTagbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Annacia's banner for Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/Copyoftag300-banner.jpg" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap2/group09okra.jpg"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap2/group10peppers.jpg> <img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa130/nowsonexitmusic/banner-smalltemp.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/CROCKPOTSTKR.jpg"> <img src="http://img258.imageshack.us/img258/8756/babyhuntsman1lz7.jpg"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap1/group07kiwi.jpg> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap1/group02banana.jpg> <img src="http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/4902/41213577264b44m3kh4.png> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif"> <img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/My-3-Chefs%20banners/my3chefs2008Small.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Camera-ChefsJPEG.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/CopyofCopyofskewered.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/personal/FRENCH-foodfun.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/participation%20banners/coolmonday-particiation.jpg" border="0" alt="Cookathon for Cool Monday (1)"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Other/tagforpage1.jpg"> <img src="http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG"> <img src="http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images/pic/ANNMAG/01226~Tofu-Posters.jpg">
