Zoodles are a great way to scratch that pasta itch while avoiding the carb hangover. Just throw the zucchini into your spiralizer, and briefly cook the zoodles in your sauce of choice to soften them up. Then add whatever else you prefer! These paleo and keto Easy Chicken Tomato Zoodles are an excellent comfort food pasta alternative for weeknight dinners.
Sneaking zucchini into baked goods is a pro move. The veggie is barely noticeable in its carby disguise, but instead helps to tone down sweetness and conserve moisture, ensuring your baked goods get a certain something special. Try it with this delicious loaf of chocolatey goodness. It's moist and nutritious but not too sweet, like eating a piece of good quality dark chocolate.
Grate your zucchinis and add in some egg and flour to create crispy pan-fried or oven-baked fritters. These are just begging to be dunked into a yogurt dill sauce or covered in some hot sauce.
Fries are the best. And zucchini fries? Even better, because you get to eat them while still feeling (semi) healthy. To make them even healthier, bake them in a panko crust and serve with a yogurt and gorgonzola dipping sauce.
Make zucchini boats! So easy, so delicious, and healthy to boot. Hollow out zucchini halves, fill them with whatever you like, cover them in cheese or breadcrumbs, throw them in the oven, and you’re done. May we suggest using them as vehicles for cheesy burrito bowls?
