1 1/2 Lbs Zucchini
3 Tbsp Butter
1 Small Onion Chopped (White)

Instructions and Notes:
1. Cut off ends of zucchini and shred.

2. Melt butter over low heat.

3. Add onion and cook 2 to 3 minutes until softened.

4. Add zucchini and thyme and raise heat to medium.

5. Add chicken stock and rice, then bring to a boil.

6. Once at a boil, reduce to low and maintain a steady simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until zucchini is very tender, about 15 minutes.
