Microwave-Steamed Zucchini

Microwave-Steamed Zucchini created by gailanng

My daughter and I love zucchini this way. So easy....no chopping, dicing, etc. Give it a try, and use one zucchini, or as many as you need. I use non-fat spray, so extremely diet-friendly. Parmesan cheese or bacon bits are good additions.

    This is absolutely the best recipe for cooking zucchini. I used vegetable spray and nuked it for about 3 minutes under a plastic plate cover for microwaves, then I added the salt & pepper and some powdered Parmesan cheese and cooked 2 more minutes. Perfection! Can't wait to try it with lemon pepper. Thanks so much for this recipe, I'm a zucchini fiend and hate finding melted zucchini in the fridge, that will never happen again. Now it's just ZAP & enjoy!

    Made this with some discovered zucchini in the back of the fridge. It was as if I was like a squirrel who found some nuts he forgot he hid. Except I'm not a squirrel.
