Zucchini with Parsley كوسا خرط

To me, zucchini can be a boring vegetable. However, with this recipe it can turn into a very interesting one. You need to dress them well, spice them up and then zucchini can turn into a yummy vegetable. I often make this dish during lent, or during a day that I don’t feel like eating meat. It’s a vegan dish. It can stand alone and serve with pita bread. Or it can be a nice side dish to a main meal.

I always like to use the sweet white onions, and I like to saute them with olive oil, as you already can tell from most of my recipes that I like to saute them until they turn into light brownish.  I feel by cooking them that way, it will give the dish an extra flavor. Just make sure to keep stirring the onions every few minutes, if they’re on high heat you got to keep an eye on the pot, you don’t want them to get burnt.

Chop the zucchini into squares and once the onions are ready add the zucchini and stir them into the onions. Keep the stove on high heat and continue to stir for few minutes. Then lower the heat into medium and cover the pot. Keep stirring every 15 minutes until the zucchinis turn soft, then add parsley. The combination of both (zucchinis and parsley) gives this dish a unique flavor. Then add salt and allspice, keep it on low with stirring every few minutes until they’re fully soft and ready.
