Sweet and Sour Sesame Zucchini

Sweet and Sour Sesame Zucchini

Zucchini is an easy to prepare and serve vegetable in the summer, especially if it grows abundantly in your garden.

But you don’t need to always serve it plain out of the pan. This sweet and sour sesame zucchini adds a unique flavor zing whose sauce barely takes a couple of minutes to stir up.

Simply saute your zucchini to a golden brown color, adding in a few slices of red chili and scallions in the process, then sprinkle the remaining colorful accompaniments on top after drizzling on the sauce.
