When it comes to summer garden veggies, cucumber are hands down my favourite!
Of course, the most common way to eat a cucumber is in it’s raw form, however, my digestion prefers cooked foods over raw, so I wanted to play around with some cooked cucumber recipes!
I will admit, the first time I thought about cooking a cucumber, I was a little turned off, but I’m so happy I experimented anyway because these sautéed cucumbers are absolutely delicious and such a nice change if you’re used to only ever enjoying them raw!
I called this recipe “Simple Sautéed Cucumbers” because I’m sure I’ll post another variation or two once I play around with cooking cucumbers a little more, but I wanted to share this simple recipe with you to show you how easy it is to sautée this veg and create a delicious summer side dish in no time at all!
Feel free to add spices or herbs if you’d like, but sea salt alone was satisfying enough for me!
- 1 garden cucumber, sliced fairly thin
- 1 tbsp cooking fat (ghee, butter, coconut oil, lard, etc.)
- Sea salt, to taste
- In a skillet over medium heat, melt the cooking fat.
- Add the cucumbers and toss around to coat in the melted cooking fat. Season with sea salt.
- Allow the cucumbers to cook until they become golden brown on one side, then flip them and allow them to turn golden on the other side.
- Remove from heat and serve immediately.
