  • Fry pan


Zucchini and Mushrooms

  • 1 kg zucchini
  • 500 grams mushrooms
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • cup honey
  • ½ tbs garlic, minced Note 1
  • salt and pepper to taste, Note 2


Zucchini and Mushrooms

  • Combine balsamic vinegar, honey, minced garlic, dried onion, salt and pepper in a jug and stir to combine
  • Take ¾ of your zucchini and slice using the food processor. Note 2
  • Use a knife to cut your mushrooms into big chunks
  • Pour ½ of your sauce over sliced zucchini, add a little oil to a fry pan and saute the zucchini for 2 mins at medium heat.
  • Add the sliced mushrooms to the zucchini and pour remaining saute sauce over them.
  • Toast flaked almonds for 2-3 mins until a light golden brown
  • Continue to cook for 2 mins and rotate the vegetables around as you go so they are fully coated in liquid.
  • Turn the heat off, remove the pan from the stove and drain the vegetables (keep the liquid)
  • Use a grater to make long strips of raw zucchini, working from the outside in. Once at the core, use a knife to cut this zucchini into thin slices. Season raw zucchini with a little salt.
  • Plate the raw zucchini 1st, then the sauteed zucchini and mushrooms. Sprinkle toasted flaked almonds on top. Pour liquid into a small bowl and drizzle over vegetables for serving.



  • Note 1 Minced garlic is better in this recipe that garlic powder. We want the chunky texture of the paste which delivers better in the minced form 
  • Note 2 We use the salt and pepper in the sauteed vegetable sauce as well as a pinch of salt to season the raw zucchini
  • Note 3 You can use a knife if you don't have a food processor. Or a mandolin. We want thick-ish chunks.
