Spicy Zucchini with Peppers

Updated: Aug 12, 2020

Growing up in Tbilisi, Georgia (Soviet Union), summer squash, aka zucchini was not a common vegetable to cook. I fell in love with zucchini after moving to the United States 18 years ago.

I love the fact that zucchini goes so well with so many different vegetables and herbs . Did you know zucchini is a great substitute for eggplant? I discovered this while making Ajapsandali - a traditional Georgian eggplant dish. We might not have many zucchini dishes in Georgian cuisine, but we do have a wide variety of eggplant dishes. I often find myself using zucchini instead of eggplant in Georgian recipes and I absolutely love the results.
