1 tbsp  olive oil
1 each  soybean oil cooking spray
1 each  medium onions
1 each  fresh leeks
2 lb  medium zucchini
1 pinch  salt
1 each  eggs
2 each  egg whites
  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil with cooking spray in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat for a few seconds.
  2. Add the leeks and onions, stir and lower heat. Cook until leeks and onions start to brown, stirring occasionally. Cook another few minutes, scraping the bottom of the pan so that nothing sticks.
  3. Slice zucchini into chunks, add to onions, and sprinkle salt on top.
  4. Cook on low heat for 1 1/2 hours, stirring every so often. The zucchini will soften and then turn brown from the onions.
