Colache (Mexican Zucchini Side Dish)
4 medium size zucchinis (finely diced)
2 cloves of garlic (cut in half)
1/3 cup of diced onion
chopped cilantro, salt, pepper, and olive oil to taste
1/4 cup boiling water
1/4 cup cheese substitute (if desired, any brand that melts will work)
Place olive oil and garlic over medium heat in a pan. Sautee until garlic cloves turn lightly brown. Add diced zucchini and onion, sautee until zucchini obtains a transparent appearance. Add water, chopped cilantro, salt and pepper to taste. Cover, reduce heat and cook for five minutes. If you wish to add a cheese additive do so at this time. This recipe is a great side dish.
