Zucchini with feta and basil

Here is one of my new favorite recipes that many times proved to be popular with my guests (dinner victims). The big plus of this recipe is that it takes not more than 5 minutes of work (wash veggies, cut veggies) and is fully ready in 25 minutes (20 minutes of steaming on the frying pan).

Ingredients needed:
  1. 4-5 zucchinis, washed, not peeled, cut

  2. two cloves of garlic, chopped
  3. glass of crumbled feta
  4. 20 fresh basil leaves, washed, chopped (could be substituted by dried basil and oregano spice)
  5. 3 tbsp of fresh cilantro (also can be omitted)
  6. salt and pepper to taste
  7. 2 tbsp of olive/canola oil

  1. Warm up oil on the frying pan.
  2. Add zucchini and garlic, mix, cover, steam for around 15-20 minutes.
  3. When zucchini becomes soft and slightly brown, remove from fire, add feta, basil, salt, pepper, cilantro. Mix and serve warm.

I do not think recipes get any easier!
