This is our favorite veggie dish. We went to the farmers market and bought some fresh zucchini and yellow squash. I make this recipe several different ways. Sometimes I use zucchini, sometimes yellow squash and other times, I mix zucchini and yellow. All three ways are delicious. Just the other night I made it with yellow squash...YUM!!

3 med zucchini (or yellow squash or mix the two)
1 vidalia or sweet onion chopped
1 tbs garlic powder.
Salt & pepper to taste
about 2 small palm fulls of corn meal
olive oil for frying

Slice zucchini about 1/4” thick, then cut slices in half.
Chop onion into desired size.
Coat and heat nonstick skillet with olive oil, then add the squash and onions.
Stir squash and onions to coat them with olive oil.
Add garlic, salt, and pepper.
Cover with lid and let cook about 15-20min stirring occasionally. You want the squash to brown a little.

After about 15-20 minutes sprinkle one palm full of corn meal onto the squash and let it cook for a few minutes then stir the squash and add the other palm full of corn meal.
Add more olive oil if needed....I usually have to drizzle a little more around the side of the skillet, as the cornmeal tends to soak up all the moisture.
Continue to cook about 7-10 more minutes until browned to your liking.

This makes enough to serve 2 people.


  1. Yum! I love fried zucchini, and I'm so glad it's finally coming in at the farmers markets around here. Thanks for emailing (I'm about to write you back!), and I'm gonna add you to my blog roll now.
