Most recipes can easily be made trans-fat free as long as you're not using hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, or products containing those items. This vegetable saute uses olive oil, a monounsaturated oil that helps to decrease bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol. Plus, it's a colorful dish that will be sure to remind you that summer is right around the corner!

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 5 small cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 medium green zucchini, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium summer squash, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Parsley, basil, thyme, or other herbs to taste (optional)

Directions:

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add chopped garlic and onion and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until translucent. Remove from pan.
  2. Add the squash and zucchini to the pan and sauté for about 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Lower the flame and cover pan. Cook on low for 6 to 10 minutes more, stirring occasionally.
  3. Uncover pan, add the cooked onions and garlic and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. If desired, add fresh herbs.
