Zucchini and peppers with sesame teriyaki sauce is a tasty side dish that comes together in just minutes!
That’s what’s going on with this dish of teriyaki goodness right now. I have eaten this for lunch for the past two days, and I really want to make it again tomorrow! But I’m worried, because I don’t want to burn out on it. I know we’ll have a lot of zucchini to deal with this summer, and this is the perfect way to eat them.
Zucchini and peppers with teriyaki is a great side dish for a barbecue, and it’s also a perfect lunch. You can eat this on its own, or over brown rice or quinoa for a more complete meal. It’s very quick to put together, and the ingredients for the sauce are probably already in your pantry.
