What does sauté mean? It’s a method of cooking food over high heat in a little bit of hot fat. This is a great way to cook vegetables while still maintaining their flavor and texture. Choose a wide bottom pan so the vegetables aren’t overcrowded. A quick sauté in olive oil is my choice for this recipe, but a combo of olive oil and butter add a nice depth of flavor. Coconut oil is a good option. This is an easy and delicious recipe to make using the last of the summer vegetables. I found some yellow zucchini, but green zucchini or yellow squash would also taste great. Change up the herbs and nuts as well. Try fresh thyme leaves or toasted walnuts.
