Zucchini with Feta and Fresh Thyme

 

  • 1 tbsp. butter or cooking oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups zucchini, cut on diagonal into 2-inch chunks
  • 2 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves or 2 tsp. dried thyme or oregano
  • 18 tsp. salt (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika or cayenne (optional)
  • 14 cup crumbled feta cheese (more to taste)

Prepare all ingredients. Heat butter or oil in a large skillet at medium heat. Add garlic & zucchini and saute about 5 minutes. Add thyme and a sprinkle of salt,  saute another minute, until zucchini is golden brown.

Remove skillet from heat  and season with salt & pepper. Some feta cheeses are saltier than others, so adjust the salt. Sprinkle feta cheese over top  with a little paprika or cayenne just before serving.
