Sauteed Zucchini & Onions

This Sauteed Zucchini & Onions is the perfect low carb side dish.  Easy, delicious, and weeknight-friendly. As the zucchini and onions are cooking in one skillet I have another going with boneless chicken breasts.   Before I know it, both have finished and it's time to eat! 

Yield: 3 Servings

Sauteed Zucchini & Onions

Sauteed Zucchini and Onions in butter and seasoned to taste.


  • 2 TBLS Butter
  • 1.5 lbs (290 g) Italian Zucchini, cut into 2" long thin pieces
  • 1/2 (137 g) small Yellow Onion, thinly sliced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste. I like Herbamare* see note*
  • Splash of Tamari-optional


  1. Melt butter in 12-inch stainless steel or cast iron skillet.
  2. Add zucchini and onion and saute until tender.  
  3. Season to taste.  


Tamari is optional for this recipe but does add a nice flavor.  If you are adding Tamari you will want to add your  salt after you add the Tamari since Tamari is gluten-free soy sauce. And soy sauce is salty to begin with.  

Also, using a cast iron or stainless steel skillet for this dish puts a nice caramelization on the veggies which really ups the flavor. Using a non-stick skillet just isn't the same.  Although it will be delicious no matter what skillet you use.
