Zucchini Nachos


Zucchini nachos is made with farm fresh zucchini with toppings like beans, cheese, avocado, jalapenos, and of course with fresh pico de gallo. This is a very healthy snack as well as an appetizer. This is a low carb snack rich in nutrition. This nachos is absolutely delicious with addictive flavors. A fresh way to serve zucchini!


This can be very easily. There is only one point to remember. Grill the zucchini pieces or pan roast them just for a couple of minutes. They shouldn't become mushy. To achieve this, zucchini should be quarter inch thick slices. This size makes it perfect for nachos. This can imitate the tortilla chips. Alternatively, zucchinis can be roasted in the oven too.


Zucchini is everywhere and to me it is a great vegetable. If you are looking for a new way to include zucchini, making nachos with them is totally awesome! With fresh and delicious topping, this nachos is ultimate! To make it vegan, use dairy free cheese.


This can be made with season's fresh produce. Every market is now loaded with squash, tomatoes, peppers....fresh season's bounty! Whether you get from farmers market or from your local stand, this is a great way to include more veggies in food. This can be great for meatless meals too! There is a farm near me and they have U-PICK options. Whenever I go, I am sure to come home with good amount of squash varieties :-).
