This is a very easy + healthy side dish. It can be made vegan by omitting the parmesan cheese.
Serves 1 or 2 depending on how hungry you are. I ate this all by myself!
- 2 zucchini, cut into sticks
- 1/2 cup of tomato basil sauce, or your favorite spaghetti sauce
- optional: 2 Tablespoons of freshly shaved parmesan cheese
- 2 Tablespoons of oil: avocado oil, coconut oil, olive oil—pick one
- salt + pepper, to taste
Pre-heat oven to 450° F
Cut zucchini into sticks and place on baking sheet, drizzle with oil, salt + pepper.
Bake 15-20 minutes. I used kitchen tongs to flip zucchini sticks after first 10 minutes of roasting.
Heat tomato sauce on stovetop.
Place zucchini sticks on serving dish.
Using a spoon, pour the tomato sauce on-top of the roasted zucchini.
Optional: sprinkle with shaved parmesan.
Happy Meatless Monday!
