Grilled parmesan zucchini chips

As a diabetes sufferer, I’m always looking for something that’s tasty with low carbs. I love my cheese too so I know I need to watch how much I eat but when I came across this recipe from a friend, I couldn’t resist making it.

Zucchinis are delicious in bakes but who knew just adding cheese and grilling them could really be so delicious?

Over comes my friend with a batch of these zucchini chips and wow, they are a winner.

What a fantastic idea. If you’ve been trying to add more veges to your diet, then why not try these?

They make a great side or a fantastic low carb snack.
