Baked Zucchini Ribbons

To me, nothing says “SUMMERTIME DELICIOUSNESS HAS ARRIVED!!!” like fresh vegetables. Along with grilling, it is definitely one of my favorite parts of warm weather. Top Five. Easy.

This is a recipe I have done several times. It’s a great go-to recipe if you find yourself in a time crunch but still want to eat healthy without sacrificing flavor.Baked Zucchini Ribbons

Baked Zucchini Ribbons

1 Whole Zucchini

2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Freshly Ground Salt & Pepper

Italian Parsley, roughly chopped

Chop off the very end of the zucchini. Using a mandolin slicer, or a vegetable peeler, cut the vegetable into slices that are super thin.

1 zucchini will make about 2 servings. So, double or triple as you feel lead.

In mixing bowl, toss the zucchini with all the seasonings and oil and arrange in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes, or longer depending on how soft you like the zucchini.

This also works great with yellow squash and maybe a slight drizzle of balsamic vinegar or fresh parmesan Baked Zucchini Ribbonscheese.

Never have you ever had a tastier side that took less than 20 minutes from kitchen to table!
