Vegan-Paleo-Keto-Whole30 and Not Mushy!
The beauty of this recipe, besides the simplicity, is that it fits almost any eating plan. But I know some people avoid zucchini because it’s high water content can result in a somewhat ‘mushy’ texture. Well here’s how you take out the mush factor:
1. After slicing, let is sit, salted for at least ten minutes
2. Cook it dry
3. High heat baby!
What to Serve it With…
This dish is so simple it goes with just about any main course. I love serving it with my Argentinian Beef Kabobs with Chimichurri Sauce!
