Sweet and Sour Zucchini and Apple

Submitted by: RUBY214

Introduction

This is a healthier twist to the traditional German recipe for cabbage and apples. Make sure you use a sweet apple and core it, but don't peel it because it will lose it's shape and you will lose nutrients.

Note: I am restricting my sodium intake so I haven't added salt to this recipe. If/when you add salt, another item (chopped carrots also makes it tasty), swap out, or adjust an ingredient, don't forget to adjust the nutritional info. As it stands now, this will help fill you up but is low in calories, fat, and sodium. :)

Ingredients

    1/3 cup chopped sweet (Vidalia) Onion
    1 small zucchini (or 1 cup chopped)
    1 small (sweet) apple (or 1 cup chopped)
    2 teaspoons of Smart Balance buttery spread
    2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
    1 tablespoon water
    1/2 tablespoon of Agave Nectar-Light
    Pepper to taste


Directions

Melt the Smart Balance butter in a small saute pan.
Add the chopped onion, zucchini, & apple & coat well. Saute on low/medium heat for about 2 minutes.
Mix in water, vinegar, & ground pepper and saute another 2 minutes.
Mix in the Agave Nectar and cover pan, cooking approx 6 minutes until zucchini is "crisp" tender - you don't want the zucchini or apple to get mushy.

This yields a serving for two people as a side dish. Pairs well with grilled chicken breast or pork.
