carrots & zucchini

This side dish is a personal favorite. I would prefer seconds of this over most desserts (sometimes). My childhood best friend, Lydia, introduced this to me about 12 years ago and every time I make it I think, we need to make this more often!


baby carrots
olive oil
grated parmesan cheese
dill weed (among the spices)

Boil the carrots so they're soft. Meanwhile, slice some zucchini. Heat a little bit of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the zucchini. Saute for a minute and then add the carrots (once they're soft) to the zucchini.

NOTE: You don't want the zucchini to get all mushy. They only need to be in the pan for about 5 minutes-ish. That means you'll want to boil the carrots well before putting carrots in the pan. Maybe 15 minutes or so before. Use a fork to test the carrots so they're "just right" for you.

Sprinkle grated parmesan cheese and dill weed over the vegetables and saute & stir for a few minutes until they're to your liking. Serve immediately.

How does the zucchini go over in your house? I think it sounds delish, but have a few that are anti zucchini.

Look forward to trying this with my 2 yr old - he likes carrots but is iffy on zucchini and the parmesan and dill (my favourite herb) may sawy him.

Thanks for that.
