Summery zucchini makes a great Indian side dish in this quick, perfectly-spiced sauté.
Whether you have an overproducing plant in your garden or not, summertime can often feel like a challenge to use zucchini in as many ways as possible. You've put it in dessert, made it into fritters, scrambled it with eggs, thrown it on the grill -- what's left? This quick sauté will get you out of your zucchini rut with fragrant Vanns Cumin Seed, Turmeric, and Ground Coriander. Serrano chilis add just the right amount of heat, and frozen peas and cilantro boost the green, fresh flavor. It makes a great side dish for grilled fish, or a simple vegetarian main when served with rice.
