Cheesy Courgette and Tomato Bake

This gratin-style cheesy courgette and tomato bake is the perfect dish for using up homegrown tomatoes and courgettes.

Serve as a side dish, on its own for a light lunch, or for something more substantial, with crusty bread and a side salad.

In this seasonal summertime dish, the courgettes are flavoured with garlic, onions and herbs before being topped with creamy mozzarella and fresh tomato slices. Grated grana padano and panko style breadcrumbs provide a crispy crunchy topping.

The courgette, tomato and mozzarella bake needs just 25 minutes in the oven before you can tuck in!

Have you seen my Courgette and Feta Frittata recipe? It's another great dish for using up a glut of courgettes!

What makes zucchini healthy?

Zucchini is a great, healthy vegetable to add to your diet. One serving is low in calories, has almost zero fat (less than 1 gram, so why even count it?), and even has 1 gram of plant protein.

One serving of zucchini also contains 1 gram of fiber vitamins A, C, K, and B6 potassium, manganese, folate, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, and thiamine. These vitamins and minerals help support your immune system, your vision, your skin, and your digestion. Zucchini also contains a large amount of antioxidants, which are important compounds that help your body fight off free-radicals.

Zucchini is also a recommended plant source for people with type 2 diabetes, as it has been shown to be a low-carb vegetable that can help lower blood sugar levels.

So what do you say? Are you ready to add zucchini to your healthy diet today?

The Best Crispy Baked Zucchini Fries

Thinly sliced zucchini dusted in breadcrumbs and baked until crispy and golden is a great alternative to potato fries with less than half the carbs and calories!
As many of you have noticed from my instagram and snapchat, we don&rsquot eat much fried food around here. I love baking everything instead of frying because it&rsquos so much healthier and honestly, tastes just as good if not better.

We&rsquove been experimenting a lot lately with healthier alternatives to the regular potatoes. We&rsquove tried the baked avocado fries, the baked sweet potato wedges, baked guacamole stuffed onion rings, and let&rsquos not forget the baked broccoli and cauliflower tots. All these dishes are great alternatives to fries!
Now it&rsquos time for the long-awaited baked zucchini fries. They are crispy, crunchy, addictive and surprisingly easy to make!

To begin, simple slice your zucchini into circles or long strips. Either way works fine but we prefer the strips! Next, dip the zucchini into eggs then into breadcrumbs. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and crispy. Make sure you allow them to bake long enough until they are golden and crispy so they hold and not become soggy.

I paired them with out favorite chipotle sauce but any other sauce or ketchup will work great as well!

Cheesy Baked Zucchini Casserole Recipe

Zucchini has a ton of water in it. That implies that when it heats it can discharge a great deal of overabundance water making your prepared zucchini come out watery. So when you’re setting up the zucchini for your dish you need to make a point to evacuate however much of that water from it as could be expected before preparing.

It’s a straightforward procedure yet it takes some additional time. I guarantee you however, at long last it’s absolutely justified, despite all the trouble.

In the wake of cutting your zucchini delicately salt it on the two sides. At that point play the cuts on a thick layer of paper towels. Let the cuts sit for 15 minutes, at that point flip them over and let them rest for an additional 15 minutes. You’ll perceive how much water comes out of the zucchini and is consumed by the paper towel!

These parmesan zucchini stacks are a delicious side dish and a great low carb alternative to potato stacks. The stacks have a crunchy top layer and a cheesy, creamy center. They are just 3 ingredients and easy to make.

This is such a fun appetizer or side dish. I got the idea from the crispy potato stacks I’ve previously made. However, these are much easier and they are low carb.

Storage Tips

Once the zucchini slices are baked, leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days in a covered container. Reheat in the over at 350°F until warm. about 5 minutes. Use your microwave directions to reheat in the microwave.

Pair the zucchini chips with any of your favorite dips. Everything But the Bagel Dip, is a favorite. Jalapeno Popper Dip, is another delicious favorite. Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing pairs so well with the bacon and Parmesan toppings. Brianne&rsquos Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip is another fantastic choice to dip your chips.
