Almond Crusted Zucchini
So from time to time I have friends who knock out amazing Paleo recipes and I make them come over and share. And then I beg them for the recipe to share with all of you, haha.
Mine and Mr. Charming's best friend, Sheldon, is a fellow Christian and blogger as well. His blog www.TwithJ.com inspires me daily. His worldwide travel and deep connection with God through it all is profound and beautiful and I'm hoping he will be a guest poster in this space with his insights, travel tips and yummy healthy recipes while I'm on maternity leave.
The other night he came over for our weekly dinner and game night and he brought these little beauties pictured below. He has his own garden and grows delicious organic zucchini. A sucker for fried zucchini I loved his healthier spin on the classic favorite.
The recipe is below and pairs as a great side dish to a grilled chicken, a salad or on their own as a snack.
1 Medium Zucchini
3/4 c. Almond Meal
1 tsp. Pepper
1/2 tsp Pink Sea Salt
1/2 tsp 6 Pepper Blend
2 Large Eggs
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Crack and whisk eggs in a small bowl. Mix pepper, almond meal, salt and pepper blend in a separate bowl.
Thinly slice zucchini and dip in egg wash. Coat thoroughly in almond pepper mixture. Place on cookie sheet and bake on one side for 5 minutes. Flip and cook an additional 5 minutes.
Let cool and serve alone or with a Paleo ranch dip.
