Zucchini Mushroom Recipe

Today, I want to share with you one of my favorite zucchini mushroom recipes. This dish is not only delicious but also incredibly easy to make. It’s perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or a weekend meal with family and friends. Let’s dive into the details of this mouthwatering recipe.


  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 8 ounces of mushrooms (any variety will work, but I love using cremini or shiitake)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs like thyme or parsley for garnish


Start by washing the zucchinis and mushrooms thoroughly. Then, slice the zucchinis into 1/4-inch rounds and the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about a minute until fragrant.

Next, add the sliced zucchinis and mushrooms to the skillet. Make sure not to overcrowd the pan, as you want the veggies to brown and caramelize, not steam. Cook for about 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the zucchinis are tender and the mushrooms are golden brown.

Season with salt and pepper to taste. I like to be generous with the black pepper as it adds a nice kick to the dish.

Once everything is cooked to perfection, transfer the zucchini and mushroom medley to a serving dish. Garnish with fresh herbs for a pop of color and added flavor.

Personal Touch:

I love serving this zucchini mushroom dish as a side to grilled chicken or fish. The earthy flavors of the mushrooms combined with the slight sweetness of the zucchinis make it a versatile accompaniment to almost any main course. It’s also a great topping for pasta or a filling for a vegetarian wrap.
