Roasted Zucchini Rounds

With so much zucchini around, we're always looking for new ways to use them. There are muffins, of course, quick breads, salads, pasta dishes, and then there's this great snack or appetizer recipe for crunchy zucchini rounds.

Now, zucchini have a high water content, so you can draw out some of the water by sprinkling the zucchini rounds with a little salt, leaving them for a few minutes, then blotting them dry. Plus, the crunch really comes from the bread crumb topping, which complements the zucchini rather nicely. Enjoy these zucchini rounds as they are, or dip into a little pot of low fat marinara sauce.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound zucchini, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1 large egg white
  • 3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs, preferable from a whole grain bread
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Combine bread crumbs, parmesan and black pepper in a small bowl.

Dip zucchini rounds in egg white and press into bread crumb mixture. Place in a single layer on baking sheet.

Great side dish, Member Alcy.D

I prepared this roasted rounds for Christmas and they were just great. Everybody loved them. I made the Marinara Sauce (the one that uses canned tomatoes, tomato puree, basil, etc) to pour over, and the flavor was superb. Thanks a lot Fiona for the wonderful recipe.
