  • 20 oz zucchini cut into chunks
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 2 oz red onion diced
  • 6 oz brown mushrooms sliced
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 0.5 oz parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp parsley freshly chopped


  • Add water to the pot, place a steaming rack inside, and place the zucchini onto the rack. Close the lid, switch the steam handle to “sealed”, select the “steam” mode, set the timer to 3 minutes and cook. Place a cloth on the steam handle and use a spoon to switch it to “release”. Remove the zucchini, set aside, and discard the water.
  • Select the “sauté” mode. Add olive oil, garlic, onion, and mushroom and stir for 3 minutes or until the mushrooms develop a golden brown color.
  • Add zucchini, butter, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder and stir for 2 minutes.
  • Plate the zucchini and sprinkle pepper flakes, cheese, and parsley on top to serve.
