Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 7 minutes.



In a medium saucepan bring a small amount of water to a boil and steam zucchini for 4–5 minutes; drain and set aside. Do not overcook the zucchini; it can turn mushy quickly if overcooked. While the zucchini is cooking, in another saucepan sauté the onion and garlic in the margarine until tender. Add the zucchini, cilantro, and salsa and heat over medium-low heat until heated through, about 1–2 minutes. Top with cheese and serve.
