Crispy Creole Roasted Zucchini, a healthy snack or side dish no one can resist!
Sometimes I get bored with vegetable side dishes. Whew! I’m glad I got that off my chest.
I know I need them in my life. I know I need to feed them to my family. I know there are tons of veggie options out there. Yet I still get stuck, on occasion, making the same three or four sides over and over again.
This happens to all of us… Even recipe developers. So don’t feel bad when it happens to you!
In my mind, the best way to fix a vegetable rut is cheese and spices.
Together, these two magical ingredients can breath life into any veggie we are tired of. They can rekindle the fire, so to speak.
Today’s Crispy Creole Roasted Zucchini is a perfect example of this.
