Mexican Roasted Zucchini
It’s a good thing I live in Texas, because I loveeee Mexican food. Is there anything better than enchiladas smothered in awesome sauce and lots of melty cheese? Answer: no.
But then, there are the sides. Ever since doing the Whole30 in the beginning of this year, I’ve been trying to stick to a Paleo(ish) diet. And unfortunately, the traditional rice and beans that so frequently are served with Mexican food do not fit the bill. I needed a low-carb, veggie based side to serve with Mexican food.
This Roasted Mexican Zucchini blows away any Spanish rice I’ve ever had. It’s bursting with flavor- spicy, savory, and slightly smoky. And it’s healthy, low carb, Paleo (if you don’t include the cheese), and a great alternative as a side to traditional rice and beans.
