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.
Zucchini and Peppers with Sesame Teriyaki Sauce.
Place the olive oil, zucchini, garlic, and red peppers in a large skillet and cook over medium heat.
Cook until the zucchini is tender but still bright green, about 5-7 minutes.
Add the tamari, honey or agave, sesame seeds, and red pepper flakes.
Stir well and cook for about 3-5 more minutes.
What have you been eating for lunch lately? Are you starting to think about summer produce yet?
There’s something so satisfying about a teriyaki stir fry! And squash and bell peppers sound delightful. I could easily addict myself to this meal!

Love little healthy stir fries like this – definitely a perfect weeknight meal!
This looks like it tasted great!
Yum! Totally obsessed that you used tamari here. I just made a similar veggie dish of lemony charred broccoli and I’m HOOKED :)
That sounds delicious!

I do the same thing! I made a stir fry this week that is so good, I’m making it again next week for dinner! Love this teriyaki bowl, I’m growing all those veggies in my garden this year!
Yay! You will be stocked up for stir fries, then!
