7 Minute Zucchini Rice
Carb-o-phobia is still running wild, and grain alternatives are getting a lot of face time on TYOS because I GAF and give the people what they want. A cup of zucchini has 19 calories and 3.5g of carbohydrates. Since man can’t live on zucchini ‘noodles’ alone, let’s do a garlicky rice dish.
3 large zucchini, grated and cut to look rice-ish
2 cloves of garlic, minced
½ C shelled pistachio (any nut works here)
Salt and pepper
¼ C sesame seeds
Coat the bottom of a large pan with olive oil, and heat it over medium-high.
Add the zucchini, garlic, pistachio, s&p. Stir to combine.
Don’t change the heat setting, and cook for 5 minutes.
Drain off any excess liquid.
Garnish with sesame seeds.
