  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (or any cooking oil of choice)
  • 2 tablespoon heavy cream
  • to taste salt and ground black pepper


  • Sauté the onion over a medium heat in the oil until tender, approximately 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and and cook over a high heat until the mushrooms are done.
  • Add the white wine and allow it to reduce to at least half.
  • Add the zucchini bits and a splash of the chicken broth.
  • Once the broth has reduced to nothing, add a little bit more until the zucchini is cooked to your desired level. You might not use the whole cup of broth.

  • Stir until the cheese is melted.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve immediately.


Tips and Tricks:

1. It’s important to cut the seeds from the zucchini as it can sometimes cause a bitter taste.
2. You can add more cheese to your personal taste.
