Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then thinly slice the leaves. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Finely chop the peppers. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). In a bowl, combine the yogurt, half the chopped peppers, the juice of 2 lemon wedges, 1 tablespoon of water, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced zucchini in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sliced onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the sliced kale. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add 2 tablespoons of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the water has cooked off. Transfer to a large bowl. Cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.
