Zucchini Rice

Main Dishes

I’ve always been a fan of spiralizing zucchini to make noodles, but I have never thought about making it into rice! I found this recipe from Further Food and it opened my eyes to a great new healthy low carb alternative to rice! I think this recipe will be used a lot for me in future dishes!

Here is Further Food’s recipe:

Ingredients

  • 2 large zucchini squash
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil, or cooking fat of choice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Add additional optional l seasonings like garlic, onion, chives, sesame seeds, etc

Directions

  1. You will want to slice the ends off your squash and then spiralize them with a Spiralizer.
  2. After they are spiralized, place on a cutting board and dice until desired sized “kernels.”
  3. OR if you don’t have a Spiralizer, you can also grate the zucchini into rice sized grated chucks
  4. In a skillet, saute the zucchini rice in the teaspoon of oil for about 5 minutes or until it softens
  5. You will want to try to cook off as much water as possible
  6. Add in the seasonings of choice and then serve!
