In his recent book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn shares this oil-free, fat-free high-fiber recipe for "fried" zucchini, a vegetarian and vegan side dish. For a low-fat and healthy vegetarian entree, you could serve this zucchini over brown rice or any other whole grain.
2 medium zucchini
2 teaspoons Bragg's Liquid Aminos, or low-sodium tamari
2 dashes garlic powder
2 dashes onion powder
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Cut ends off zucchini and slice lengthwise into at least 4 long slices.
Sprinkle a large nonstick pan with a small amount of Bragg's Liquid Aminos, then arrange the zucchini in a pan by wiping each slice, front and back, in the Bragg's. Flip the slices around to fit in the pan so that each slice will brown.
Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, then carefully turn over. If pan needs liquid, add a little water or a bit more tamari.
Sprinkle cooked side with garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper and continue cooking another 5 minutes, adding tiny bits of water as necessary until both sides are brown.
