Zucchini

I love zucchini! I bought two at the store, and plan to put some pepper on it and brown on non-stick pan.

Is this carby? How many g carbs?

Just looked up zucchini on ******. All I could find was baby zucchini, raw. For reference, one whole pound is 14.1 grams carbs and 95 calories.

I like to cut a medium one into spears (quartering it). Brush with the oil you like and add spices. Broil until browned.

Love Zucchini. If you eat cheese, cut into 4 inch sticks, dip in egg white (not oppose to yolks, but whites keep it crispy), then into a mixture of grated parmesan, dried herbs, garlic, salt, pepper and bake at 400 for about 10 minutes.

One medium, raw zucchini, including skin has 6.6g carbs with 2.2g fibre (if you subtract). It is a great low carb veggie. Enjoy!!

I am not a veggie eater, but that is one veggie I do like...when I get to goal and start adding veggies in that is one I for sure will add in and have a great recipe where you use pork rinds, parm. cheese as a breading and make fried zucchini...

I eat one zuchinni every day, cut it up, add mushrooms and about a cup of leftover other veggie from dinner, such as cauliflower or brussel sprouts, add flaxmeal and huge dollop of minced garlic. Add 1/2 cup egg substitute or 1/2 cup egg whites. Hot salt and grated parmasan. I've been eating that for breakfast for several years, keeps me FULL and it's alot of food, so you can last until lunch time very nicely. I don't count carbs however, I count calories.

This is so good! Zucchini is so good done this way, eggplant is good too.

Yummy ideas ladies!!!

I like to cut it into sticks and eat it raw.

I've also skinned it, then used the veggie peeler to make "noodles" out of it, dotted it with butter and baked the noodles.

if you go to sparkrecipes, you can put in the whole recipe (cooking instructions and all, the dash of salt, etc) and it will give you the nutritional breakdown.

grill it!

This is one of my favorite LC veggies! I cut mine in quarters, drizzle with olive oil and salt and then toss them on the grill. The hot grill brings out the natural sweetness in them. When we grill steak this is usually our side - no pots or pans to clean!

I use zucchini and onion and make a hash in the morning and crack an egg in the middle, put the lid on the pan and cook it on top of the stove.. I really like this breakfast.

I have made Cleo's pizza crust and also used the zucchini crust recipe to make chips. It's REALLY a very versatile recipe.

I made zuchinni lasagne two nights ago. The whole family loves it...they said they don't 'need no stinkin' noodles'. lol. I just slice the zuch's lengthwise, and salt a little, let stand..than parboil for ten minutes (or less, depending on thickness) in salted water, drain and rinse w/cold water.

I just use them like noodles and do my layers...then bake...and then I let it get cool and sit..it 'reabsorbs' the water....then reheat. This is something that is great to let sit over night in fridge and have the next night.

Ooooh, love the idea of stuffing with cheese & Italian sausage. Thanks!

I sometimes stuff mine with a few chopped walnuts and some stilton, drizzle with oil and then roast in the oven.
