1 Pan Meal: Easiest Zucchini Skillet
You know what’s better than a delicious dinner? Not having to do a ton of dishes after you’re done eating. This skillet recipe can be thrown together in 30 minutes, and it does not disappoint. The ingredients are also super easy to find, so you really have no excuse not to make this asap. No joke! It happens to be vegetarian, but feel free to add in the meat of your choice, or some tofu for extra protein. You can thank me later when you’re reveling in your lack of dirty dishes.
And yes, I know that a pan and a skillet are technically different. But “1 Pan Meal” does have a nice ring to it…
Easiest Zucchini Skillet
Adapted from Ready, Set, Eat
1 tbsp canola oil
1 1/2 cups sliced zucchini (quartered lengthwise)
1/2 cup diced green pepper, or other veggie of choice. I used mushrooms instead.
1 can black beans
1 can fire roasted tomatoes (I prefer the kind with green chiles to give it a kick)
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup shredded cheese blend (cheddar & jack works well)
1 cup instant rice
Want to save a bit of time? Use pre-cooked rice and skip the water. I like the microwaveable brown rice from TJs.
