This foolproof way to cook zucchini is also the easiest and fastest. Just steam it on the stovetop for a few minutes and you have a healthy vegetable side dish to add to dinner. Toss with a little pesto for extra flavor.
Bring 1 inch of water to boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket.
Add zucchini. Cover and steam until very tender, about 5 minutes.
