Serve a vegetable at every meal – that’s what I learned growing up. We always had a veggie at every sit down meal. As you know, I love to come up with new recipes for vegetable side dishes. Now a simple fresh steamed veggie is great, but they tend to get a little boring over time. So I like to add a little kick, a touch more flavor and of course just a bit of yummy fat. So why not some buttery curried zucchini?
I LOVE curry. It has such a great intense flavor, perfect for adding that special kick to vegetables. And this curried zucchini sure does have a kick!
Ghee (clarified butter) is used to brown the zucchini. If you don’t have ghee, any other cooking fat will do just fine, however, I recommend butter or coconut oil for the best results. BUT, ghee is the best IMO. Cooking with ghee gives the dish a deeper, more intense flavor. However, it does have a very high saturated fat content, so I recommend using it sparingly – do as I say, not as I do right?
Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve.
