Sautéed Vegetables with Lemon and Basil


Makes 2 servings.

Approximate cooking time: 25 minutes


  • 1 tsp coconut or olive oil
  • 6 white button or cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 medium zucchini, diced
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 4-6 large basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste (optional)


  • Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add oil when pan is hot.
  • Add mushrooms and garlic, and sauté (stirring frequently) until mushrooms begin to soften (about 8 minutes).
  • Add red pepper and zucchini, and continue to cook until vegetables soften slightly.
  • Remove from heat, add lemon juice, basil, sea salt (if desired) and black pepper. Toss mixture and serve hot.


  1. Tasty! (though I omitted the pepper.) It even made me willing to eat zucchini.
