Zucchini Spiral Recipe

For the Husband's birthday I wanted to make a special veggie dish and came across this recipe, that I decided to modify for both our diets (Me=Low Carb, He=Mostly Vegan). It was actually pretty easy to make, even though it looked intimidating. He usually doesn't have any eggs, but a friend gave me several from her backyard chickens, and those are A-Okay with him.

It turned out beautifully and impressed the Husband! It makes a nice side dish and yet another way to use the versatile zucchini like a noodle.

Ingredients:
  • 3 Green and yellow zucchinis
  • Large Carrot
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • Cream
  • Garlic
  • Cheese (I used brie, but any white cheese will work)
  • Diced Bacon (optional) 
Directions:
I used a cheese slicer to cut the zucchini and carrot into long thin strips. You could also use a Mandolin. Blanch the carrot strips for about 5 minutes in boiling water. Then I laid out several strips and started to roll them. As the wheel got bigger I had to wrap the strips around it instead of roll it. Move the spiral to a casserole dish. Then I covered it with pressed garlic, poured over the cream and egg mixture, and the (optional bacon and) cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until golden brown

  6. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I'll definitely be trying it (in a month or so, I have a friend who grows more zucchini in her garden then she knows what to do with so I become the happy recipient of it) :)
