Can I cook Sautéed Zucchini indoors?

Yes, if you do not have a Blackstone, you can easily make this Hibachi Zucchini recipe indoors.

Cook the veggies and sauce in a skillet or indoor griddle over medium heat for best results. The results are a easy side dish to make with any baked or crock pot meal.

Variations for Hibachi Vegetables Recipe:

  • Add Veggies – You can easily add vegetables with the zucchini. We suggest, slice mushrooms, chopped broccoli, or slice yellow squash. You can also mix in garlic or scallions for delicious flavor.
  • Change the Sauce – You can easily change the sauce in this recipe if you prefer. Make a stir fry flavored sauce by using tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminos for a delicious flavor. You can also substitute the teriyaki sauce with tamari sauce.
  • Fried Rice – Mix these veggies with cooked rice for a delicious stir fry onions recipe. We like to add in an egg with chicken and sesame oil to make a complete meal idea.
  • Zucchini Noodles – For a twist on this recipe, make zucchini noodles for a delicious low calorie diet.
  • Red Pepper Flakes – We like the extra kick that the red pepper flakes give the zucchini. But you can easily leave it out.
