This is one of our FAVORITE side dishes now!! My husband, who does not even like zucchini, totally loved this dish! Need a good side to serve with your meal… try this one! Potato used to be the biggest thing as far as side dishes went for us but once we removed that from our diet, I needed something to replace it. Zucchini has been it! And this dish… wow! I even eat this for lunch the next day by it’s self because it is that good!
Toast up a low carb pita (I use one Joseph Bakery Pita) or use 1/2 cup of almond flour. Crunch it up and add parm and spices (I added some nutritional yeast). Spread on top of zucchini.
