CSA Haul Recipe Zucchini steamy slices

Want an easy way to make use of your plentiful garden bounty? Sometimes your food grows faster than you can eat it! This is the perfect summer dish to make for a lazy weekday dinner when you want something healthy but don’t have a lot of time.

Use up all of that zucchini, tomato, and basil that’s been growing in your garden and whip up this healthy side dish. Eat it with some grilled chicken or use it to top a nice romaine salad and add some feta crumbles.
