Excess Zucchini? Hide it in rice!

I'm not really one of those "hide your veggies in something else" people, but this was a really great way to get your veggies and starch together in one dish. Served with some grilled salmon on a plank - perfect easy meal.

Zucchini and Rice side dish serves 4

1/2 onion finely chopped
olive oil
couple small zukes shredded
1 cup white rice (you could do brown, just increase water and cooking time)
2 cups chicken broth or water
chopped cherry tomatoes (optional, but they look cute)

Saute the onion until soft in the olive oil in a medium pot. Add rice and toss around to coat. Add broth or water cover and cook for 15 min on low. Add the zucchini and stir, cover and cook another 5 min or until rice is done. Serve topped with chopped tomatoes and some chopped basil if you have it. (I had some purple basil growing, so that is what looks oddly black in the photo!)
