BAKED ZUCCHINI PARMESAN





BAKED ZUCCHINI PARMESAN 
A lovely low-carb side dish. This is a great way to use up zucchini.  You can use larger zucchinis as well, of course.  Just cut them to size.   Great recipe for all those summer zucchinis!  Initially I had paprika in the seasoning, but I took it out of the recipe ingredients as it was the wrong flavor profile....now it's fine!

1 lb small zucchini (0.45 kg)
  (weighed after the ends are cut off)
3 tbsp light-tasting olive oil (45 mL)
3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese (45 mL)
  (the kind in a can)
2 tbsp almond flour, OR use more Parmesan and reduce salt (30 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (1 mL)
1/2  tsp salt, OR to taste (2 mL)

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

Slice each zucchini in half lengthwise and then each half again, so that you have 4 slices.

Place the zucchini sticks on a greased cookie sheet.  Carefully drizzle the olive oil over each stick.

In small bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese, almond flour, OR Parmesan cheese, black pepper, 1/tsp (1 mL) paprika and salt.  Sprinkle each zucchini stick with this mixture.  Bake 15 minutes and then broil until browned. Watch carefully.
