“This is a refreshing and tasty Mediterranean recipe. You can also use yellow squash to cook it. It is so easy, and it goes well with fresh, crusty bread.” - by Turkishcook
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar, then add the chopped zucchini, dill, and rice. Cook and stir until the zucchini is softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in the water, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the mixture until the rice is cooked, about 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, and let the mixture cool to lukewarm.
- Make a sauce by mixing the yogurt, garlic, and salt in a bowl. Serve over the lukewarm zucchini and rice.

See mored it up to high for the last few minutes to brown it. I used Greek yogurt for the sauce, so it was nice and tangy; it mixed perfectly with the caramelized zucchini.

I served it with pan-seared sea bass and it was a perfect r..." See moreefreshing healthy summer meal. I confess I didn't have fresh dill so used 1/2 amount of dried dillweed and it was outstanding. I found that in a skillet the small amount of rice with water doesn't really boil so the zucchini really did saute in the olive oil and I had to cover the pan in order for the rice to get tender. Ingredients already in kitchen, minimal prep time, fabulous blend of flavors....I put it in my "Family Loved It" file! "
