Do you follow TheKitchn.com? Yeah I know it’s spelled wrong, but that’s the way they spell it! AND no matter how it’s spelled they have some absolutely GREAT recipes! Some of which are, like this one, wonderfully low carb!
The recipe calls for a delicious blend of herbs and ricotta cheese and is designated as an appetizer. It will make a great appetizer but I am having them for lunch! Without any marinara sauce because I don’t think they need it.
As you can see by the nutritional label I generated, if you use all fat ricotta and you get the 24 slices of zucchini (8 out of each of the 3 whole zucchinis) each rollup will only be 1 net carb apiece!
Want to lower your carbs more? skin the zucchini, although I like the edge it gives the finished look of the dish and they are easier to handle if you are serving them as finger food. Note that they are not heavily grilled either which makes them fine for handling as an appetizer if forks aren’t on the menu.
Want them to look really pretty? Use a mandoline to slice the zucchini. This HomeNative® Adjustable Mandoline Slicer is the best selling mandoline on Amazon because it is made so well, is easy to clean up and protects your fingers! It gets 5 out of 5 stars! The lowest review still gives this mandoline 4 stars and they still seem satisfied with their purchase.
By adjusting your mandoline you should be able to get nice thin slices of zucchini, which will give you the lowest carbs while giving you perfect looking and delicious rollups!
Whether you make these grilled zucchini rollups to serve your guests as appetizers or as a side dish (I am eating mine as the main dish for my lunch) for a meal you are going to love them! Trying them out today? Give them a thumbs up and share this with your friends!
In the meantime, ciao for now!
