Zucchinis are plentiful every summer – and our recipe puts a new spin on this farmers market favorite. Not only is this crispy treat a great substitute for starchy potato chips, but it’s also full of teeth-strengthening nutrients.
½ cup flaxseed meal
¼ cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
¼ cup teaspoon kosher salt
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ pound zucchini, cut into ¼-inch-thick rounds
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Using a food processor, finely grind the flaxseed meal, basil leaves and salt. Stir together flaxseed meal mixture and cheese in a medium bowl. Toss zucchini rounds with oil. Dredge zucchini in flaxseed meal mixture one at a time, pressing gently to adhere. Place rounds in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake 30 minutes or until browned and crisp. Serve hot.
