Recipe Collection: Beef with Tomato and Zucchini
When I was faced with the necessity of cutting grains out of my diet recently, I had to become more creative in what I cooked. This recipe was born of necessity. If you’re not grain-free, you could serve it with some pasta as a sauce. If you are, it’s great just by itself.
1 lb. grass-fed ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 c. chopped tomatoes or strained tomatoes
1 zucchini, chopped
1/2 tsp. basil
1 tsp. sea salt
Heat olive oil in a large pan. Add garlic, zucchini and beef. Cook until beef is browned. Add tomatoes and spices. Cook until zucchini is soft and flavors are mixed, 10 – 15 min. Serve by itself or over pasta.
*I personally like it better with chopped tomatoes, and even if I use strained tomatoes (I haven’t found chopped tomatoes in glass jars yet and the flavor of the raw tomatoes isn’t quite the same) I will usually add some fresh tomatoes too. I think, though, if you were using it as a sauce, you would prefer strained tomatoes. It is VERY thick and meaty but that is the point; it can be a meal in itself! Would go great with a nice salad too.
