Lemon-Garlic Grilled Zucchini Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Lemon-Garlic Grilled Zucchini which belongs to the Sides recipe category.
- 6 smallish zucchinis
- cup (120 ml) olive oil
- cup (60 ml) lemon juice
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- Salt and pepper
Split your zucchinis in half lengthwise and cut off the stems.
Put them in a large resealable plastic bag.
Mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic and pour the mixture into the bag.
Press out the air, seal the bag, turn it a few times to coat the zucchini, and throw it in the fridge until you need it.
When grilling time comes, pull out the bag, pour off the marinade into a bowl, and throw the zucchini on the grill.
Baste them with the lemon dressing and grill them until they get soft and have brown grill marks.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.
With the marinade, this comes to 7 grams of carbohydrate per serving, and 2 grams of fiber, but you'll discard much of that. I'd say 4 grams of carbohydrate, with those 2 grams of fiber, for a usable carb count of 2 grams; 2 grams protein.
