Submitted by Member: Carol H

This is a really nice summer recipe. You can use anything that grows in your garden. For this recipe I used zucchini and the zucchini flowers which are delicious.

  • Zucchini
  • Zucchini Flowers
  • Peppers
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Basil
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt, Pepper & Red Pepper to taste


  1. Start with a few tablespoons of olive oil.
  2. Sauté some onion and garlic. Keep the temperature on low to allow the vegetables to simmer.
  3. Add peppers, zucchini, grape tomatoes and fresh basil. Cover while you cut the other ingredients, the zucchini will make a nice broth.
  4. Add the zucchini flowers at the end. Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste.


I served this over gluten free pasta with grated Romano cheese. You can also add cooked chicken or shrimp to this recipe for a different twist. Enjoy!
