  1. Low Sodium

    Healthy Carbs Compound


      1 medium zucchini , about 6 inches long

      1 teaspoon olive oil

    1. 1/8 tsp garlic powder
    1/8 tsp onion powder

    • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


        Heat the oven to 375 F. Trim the ends of the zucchini. At every half-inch of the zucchini, cut most of the zucchini, but not all the way down. It should look like the zucchini is cut into rounds, but all the slices are still connected underneath.

        Gently pat dry the zucchini with a paper towel. Place the zucchini on a sheet of foil large enough to completely wrap it. Drizzle the top of the zucchini with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic and onion powder. Wrap the zucchini in foil and pinch tightly. Put it on the baking sheet.

        Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the zucchini is tender when you poke it with a fork. Remove from oven and open foil. Sprinkle cheese over zucchini. Let the foil open. Return the zucchini to the oven for 1 to 2 minutes, until the cheese is melted and slightly browned. Serve hot.
