Tips for a perfectly cooked zucchini.  

To keep zucchini tender but firm on the outside, the zucchini must be baked at a high temperature. However, size also matters. Using small, young and very fresh zucchini makes this dish beautiful and delicious.

Zucchini, also known as courgette, is a small vegetable shaped like a cucumber. The green-skinned variety is considered a summer squash and is best when it is firm and fresh. For someone following a low-carb and low-calorie diet, this vegetable is ideal.

The green squash, including the skin, has only about 19 calories per serving (about 1 cup sliced), fiber, vitamin C and some protein. You already love the Italian stuffed zucchini recipe, well this is more of a Greek recipe. Both are healthy and delicious.

Zucchini is an excellent vegetable used in pasta sauces replacing meat and for moistness and nutrition in desserts. So a great vegetable to include in your diet.

I typically serve this baked zucchini dish as an anytime healthy snack. However, it makes for a delicious lunch by adding a simple salad.

For those of you that follow a keto diet, the total net carbs are about 4 g per serving. If you want something heartier for dinner, serve the baked zucchini with goat cheese with one of our vegetarian pasta dishes. You will love it!
