If you have a vegetable garden you'll understand. If you have a vegetable garden and grow zucchini, you'll very much understand! These summertime veggies can take on a life of their own and take over your vegetable patch! Some people like them raw. My mother slices them and tosses them into her salad. I have to eat my zucchini cooked, preferably grilled.
A few weeks ago I had Parmesan zucchini fries at one of my favorite restaurants. I wanted to create something like that but healthier. I wanted a Parmesan zucchini fried that wasn't fried. I figured I could easily try to create something similar on my grill pan. And I did. These were simple, delicious and best of all, for me, healthy for the kids and low carb for me!
1 large zucchini
2-3 tbs olive oil
Parmesan for sprinkling
Slice your zucchini as uniformly as possibly
Rub a very light amount of olive oil on them - enough to prevent from sticking
Place on hot griddle or pan
Sprinkle Parmesan on the side facing up, after a few minutes flip over so that the Parmesan can brown.
Sprinkle Parmesan on the other side, and repeat until both sides are the color you desire.
(About 3 minutes per side depending on thickness)
Place on paper towel to drain
Serve on a pretty plate
If making for dinner figure 1 large zucchini for 4 people.
