When you are in a hurry or want to create a super easy vegetarian dish, this recipe is great one for you. The key is to add lots of garlic and fresh herbs, but otherwise it is as simple as it gets. It works well as a side dish too, a quick snack or supper for one.
Preheat the oven to 200 c. In a medium-sized pan, add a dollop of butter. Place in the sliced zucchini and chopped (and cleaned) asparagus. Stir gently around so they get coated with the butter and grate in the garlic. Add salt and ground black pepper. Place the mixture into an oven dish and grate parmesan cheese on top along with the fresh herbs. Place into the oven for about 20 minutes. Ready to plate: Squeeze some lime juice, sprinkle pumpkin seeds and add more black pepper on top.
