  • Start by cutting the stem off the zucchini.
  • Then cut the zucchini in half (through its circumference). Then cut those two round halves in half down the length of the zucchini. So, you should have 4 long moon shaped pieces at this point for slicing again into zucchini sticks.
  • Once you have finished slicing the zucchini, place a medium skillet on the stove with the avocado oil. Spread the avocado oil evenly across the pan. Then set the burner temperature to medium-low.
  • Quickly arrange the zucchini sticks in the skillet making a single layer. Then set a time for 3 minutes. With the timer going, use your fingers to lightly sprinkle the seasoning on each piece of zucchini (save half for the opposite side).
  • After 3 minutes, flip the zucchini over to quickly brown the other side. It will take about 1 minute to brown the opposite side, so you can quickly sprinkle a little more ranch mix and black pepper on this side.
  • After a minute or so, remove the sauteed zucchini from the skillet and eat up!
