FAST Slow-cooked zucchini with basil and lemon

Yahoooo!! Slow cooked veg that’s quick to make. You’d expect the opposite, no?

I have stacks of zucchinis (my FAVOURITE  veg!) and bunches of overgrown basil just waiting to be torn and thrown in something quick.

Luckily I found a recipe, the perfect side dish to a little bit of protein or some quinoa, that will deal with both these dilemmas in one swift ( or slow!) cook.

I made mine into a ripper fridge surprise abundance bowl – coupled with sauerkraut, olives, feta, silverbeet and zucchini with white cashew sauce and a bit of left over quinoa.

This recipe is from The Petite Kitchen via IQS

zucchini-iqs-495x340

6 Zucchinis sliced into rounds

Olive oil covering the base of you slow cooker or large frying pan.

Juice of 1 lemon

3 handfuls of basil leaves

Throw the zucchinis in warmed oil to coat and cook for  1 minute. Close the slow cooker lid and set the timer for 25 minutes or over a low heat for the same amount of time. If it’s in a pan, don’t forget to stir!

Remove from the heat.

Add lemon juice, basil, a pinch of sea salt.

Stir.

Serve.
