“Cheezy Fried” Onion and Zucchini

EARTH ANGEL VEGAN’S “Cheezy Fried” Onion and Zucchini make the perfect light summer side dish.  It just happens to be zucchini season and my zucchini are coming in the garden like crazy right now and Vidalia onions are in every market.  This is perfect with a fluffy baked potato or along side a juicy portobello steak.  Or… OMG over mashed potatoes. You can dice it finer and make it a taco or burrito filling adding rice and beans… my mouth is watering!

It is beautiful on the plate… so get fancy and serve it at your next vegan dinner party!

RECIPE: (serves 2) 

1 Vidalia onion diced (about a cup)

1 medium zucchini diced (about a cup)

2 Tablespoons of soy sauce (or your favorite alternative)

1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic

2-4 Tablespoons nutritional yeast

1/2 cup water on hand for adding in a tablespoon at a time

Salt and Black Pepper to taste

Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and some fresh chopped parsley for garnish and flavor (if using for taco filling make it lime juice and cilantro)

In a non-stick skillet (I LOVE MY SCAN PAN) … add the onion and soy sauce and start to saute’ while stirring on medium heat for a minute or 2 then lower to the lowest setting.  Stirring occasionally let the onions brown.  After about 5 minutes add the diced zucchini and stir… add a tablespoon of water at a time if you feel the vegetables are sticking or burning.  Sprinkle the veggies with granulated garlic and salt and pepper to taste.  I do just a little sprinkle of black pepper and add salt to my own dish if I feel it needs it.  When the zucchini is cooked to your liking (I like mine with a little crunch left) you can add the nutritional yeast… Start with 2 tablespoons … I added the whole 4 because I love nutritional yeast!  Stir it in… it might seem thick and sticking to the bottom of the pan so add a tablespoon of water at a time until you get it a little saucy and it can coat all the veggies!

Serve immediately … I like a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and some chopped fresh parsley on top!







This is my favorite brand of Nutritional Yeast… available on Amazon
