I love zucchini/courgettes! They are low carb, low calorie and so versatile, you can really make everything with them, from bread to delicious cakes!

I made so many tasty keto recipes with zucchini, here are my favorite.

Baked zucchini slices

  • Cut zucchini in slices, don’t slice them too thin or too thick, let it be around 2.5 cm or 1 inch. You don’t want them too thick because of too much water in them, and if too thin you will get something like chips. 
  • Put all the slices on a sheet pan. I always layer my sheet pan with a parchment paper because it’s so much easier to clean afterwards. They don’t stick at the bottom and you really don’t have to waist your precious time on cleaning and washing.

Seasoning and topping

  • Be modest with seasoning, just sprinkle with coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper and with low carb topping.
  • If this would be a regular recipe, you would be using breadcrumbs. However, we don’t eat bread, so instead I use parmesan cheese and blanched almond meal.

It’s actually so much better in this combination. Zucchini with keto breading on top are amazing! Topping becomes golden brown what gives additional flavor, and a little bit of crunch so you can enjoy it even better.

Serving oven baked zucchini slices

I love having this zucchini recipe as a keto side dish to some of my favorite meals, and here are some of my recipes you can try with baked zucchini.

Salisbury steak

Pork chops with mushroom sauce

Chili con carne

Keto Bolognese ragu

Of course, you can serve them with some dipping sauce, sour cream or with my tuna spread or sardines keto spread.

They are also wonderful when you pour them with a generous amount of this 3 minute keto cheese sauce. Oh, I love that so much!
