Tomato Sauce Zucchini & Onions

zucs

Many common foods can be categorized by temperature (warming and cooling). According to Ayurveda/Chinese medicine, during different seasons it is wise to eat more cooling or warming foods to help combat the rapid changing weather. As autumn approaches and the days get chillier here the northeast I  lean towards more heartier meals with warmth. Although zucchini’s are better known to have a cooling effect, the way you prepare the dish can make all the difference. This red sauce zucchini & onion side dish is perfect for the chilly days ahead.

Tomato Sauce Zucchini & Onions

Makes: 4-5 servings

ingredients:

2-3 organic zucchini (depending on your serving size)

1 onion

coconut oil (or EVOO)

organic tomato sauce

directions:

  1. Rinse and cut the zucchini into 1/2 inch slices (lengthwise). Steam until tender.
  2. Cut your onion into rings and saute in coconut oil (low to medium heat) until tender.
  3. Combine the zucchini & onion in the pan and add in the tomato sauce.
  4. Heat all together at a low temperature to let the flavors mix and serve hot.

That will warm you right up!

    This looks simple enough- thanks! Do you mean straight tomato sauce, or a spaghetti sauce that would have some herbs and seasoning in it? Yours looks like it has some flakes of green in it like it might be a basil garlic tomato sauce or something. But maybe not.

    (Sorry, this comment box is capitalizing every word on me for some reason, and it won’t let me change them..)

      Yep :) Very quick and simple. It’s a spaghetti sauce. 365 Tomato Basil to be exact.
      (Thanks for pointing that out about the capitals. I Fixed it up. Regardless it published correctly.)
