Description

This recipe adds some fat to the zucchini dish, making it perfect for a low carb/high fat diet. Suitable for gluten-free, Atkins, keto, lchf, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, dairy-free.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Zucchini, Medium, Quartered
  • 1 Tablespoon Best Foods/Hellman's Mayonnaise (or Other Zero Carb)
  • 1 Tablespoon Kraft Shredded Parmesan (the Powdery Kind), Omit For Dairy Free
  • 1 dash Black Pepper
  • 1 dash Salt

Preparation

Cut ends off the zucchini. Cut zucchini lengthwise, and then crosswise to make 4 sections.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

While skillet is heating, use a pastry brush to lightly brush both top and bottom of each piece of zucchini with mayonnaise. Sprinkle both sides with Parmesan cheese (the powdery kind), salt and pepper, then place cut side down on the hot pan. Cook about 2–3 minutes, or until bottom is well browned. Flip each piece so the cut side is up. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover the skillet. Leave for about 5 minutes, or until zucchini is just barely fork-tender.

Remove lid, flip them one more time to crisp up the cut side. Ideally, you want some nice char on them for flavor, so don’t worry if they seem to be very dark. Serve.

Note: In our house, 1 medium zucchini is a single serving, so the nutritional information is for the entire batch. This recipe can be increased by however many servings you wish to make, or just serve 1 or 2 pieces with other sides at a meal.

Leftovers can be frozen, but will be very soft when defrosted.
