This keto zucchni noodle, Feta cheese & thyme bake is also a gluten free dish that will become a family favourite. This zucchini noodles keto recipe is simple to make but is packed full of flavour.
Zucchini noodles are briefly stir fried to get water out of them before combining them with a cheesy herb sauce and baking them. The result is a delicious low carb side dish which I could happily enjoy as a main with a side salad.
Zucchini Noodle Recipe
I made this one night just throwing ingredients into a bowl, then baked it in the oven as I wanted a quick supper dish since "Line of Duty" was about to start and I did not want any distractions. For those in the UK, did you see it? I was yelling at the television as if it was a sports programme and think my heart rate has only now just settled down!
We loved this experimental dish, but had I written down the ingredients and quantities? Meh! No! I originally was using a zucchini pizza base recipe with a few tweaks so had to go back to the drawing board. Happily, it did not too long to get back to my original experimentation and I now have an assigned notebook in the kitchen for future cooking!
How to Cook Spiralised Zucchini Noodles
These zucchini noodles are pan fried so there is no real need to sprinkle them with salt to withdraw any excess liquid. The quick frying in a pan should do this for you!
You could make this with cream as an additional ingredient but due to the water content of the zucchini, I found that you don't really need it. But add some to the dish if you want to make it extra creamy. Or perhaps some cream cheese? This served 2 as a main dish alone, but it could stretch to 4 if you had a side salad or two.
