This is my favorite way to eat plain zucchini. It is also incredibly easy, making this side dish pretty much perfect!
small or medium green and yellow zucchini
kosher salt and pepper
extra virgin olive oil
Slice zucchini into 1/2" rounds.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
Add zucchini rounds - make sure they are in a single layer with no overlapping.
Flip after 3-4 minutes - zucchini should be browned on one side.
Salt and pepper zucchini as the other side browns.
Once browned, lightly drizzle olive oil over zucchini and toss to coat.
Continue cooking until oil is absorbed and all pieces are browned.
