Zucchini with tomato sauce recipe

The zucchini with tomato recipe is a simple one that can be served as an accompaniment to meat or fish or as a base for pasta, rice, or mashed potatoes. Last night I got caught up in doing things and my nephew came over for dinner; since I didn't have much in the fridge, I decided to make do with what I could find.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 2 zucchini
  • 4 ripe tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • A piece of ginger
  • A chilli
  • 50 ml virgin olive oil (approximately)
  • Himalayan salt and ground pepper


    1. It is not necessary to peel the zucchini before dicing it (better if they are organic)
    2. Grate the garlic clove and the chilli finely.
    3. The tomatoes are grated.
    4. Heat the oil in the pan, then add the zucchini cubes, season, and brown. Add the garlic, ginger, and split the chilli in half (depending on whether we want it more or less spicy, when releasing the seeds it stings more than if we put it whole).
    5. Add the tomato and sauté for a few minutes. Allow it to reduce for 5 to 10 minutes (depending on the amount of water in the tomato) over medium / high heat, stirring frequently to prevent it from sticking. We adjust the salt point, and that's all there is to it.
