This is and easy and quick snack, appetizer or side dish to use all the zucchini from your garden!


1 small zucchini thinly sliced
Non-stick cooking spray
A sprinkle of kosher salt
A light sprinkle of freshly cracked pepper
1/2 cup of packaged mozzarella cheese


Slice zucchini into thin slices but not as thin as a potato chip. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray, place zucchini slices on cookie sheet and spray once again. Sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until the zucchini has changed to a translucent like color and they have shrunk slightly.

Chatty Advice

When making any of our gluten-free recipes take care in reading the labels of any packaged or canned products. If there is a label on anything you are using, read it or ask to make sure that it is indeed gluten-free. Many products vary in ingredients from brand to brand. Some examples of this can be found when looking at the labels of soy sauce, mustard, distilled vinegar, and even chicken broth.
