I made so many tasty keto recipes with zucchini, here are my favorite.
HOW TO MAKE KETO BAKED ZUCCHINI IN OVEN
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.
