Faux Fried Zucchini

Sunday, February 6, 2011

I got this recipe from Cooking With Medifast. There are a lot of good recipes on that website that I am looking forward to trying. This is the first one I tried and it did not disappoint. I was looking for something to accompany my lean tonight so I decided to give this a try. I would've never thought to use the cream of broccoli soup as a coating to make zucchini crispy, but hey it worked. The taste was very good even without the full amount of garlic powder and pepper. I just kind of lightly sprinkled it on. This zucchini is a definite keeper that you can quickly throw together and bake. Yummy!
