Zucchini with Herbs

This is a very simple side dish that allows the delicate flavor of the zucchini to come into its own. Recipe serves 4-6.


2 pound (1 kg) zucchini, grated
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh basil
1 tablespoon fresh marjoram
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
Freshly ground black pepper


1. Place grated zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Leave to drain for 1/2-1 hour. Squeeze out all moisture.
2. Heat oil in a fry pan. Add zucchini and cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
3. Add lemon juice and herbs and mix through. Season with pepper and serve.
