Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large wok style deep fry pan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook until soft. Do not brown. Add and saute the zucchini and all remaining chopped vegetables except for tomatoes and cook until browned slightly.

Veggie stir frys are a great way to go for something quick and healthy. I think if I lived closer to the grocers I would probably buy fresh produce very often. Yours here look like they came right from the garden, so vibrant! Have a great weekend Claudia!
