If you’re looking to get SHREDDED this summer, this low calorie side is for you! This simple side is easy to make. You can make this side to go with a lunch or a dinner because it works well with a variety of entrees.
- 4 small squash
- 4 small zucchini
- 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
- * pinch of Himalayan salt and black pepper
First, I wash the 4 squash and 4 zucchini, and then I pat them dry with a clean towel. I then grab my cutting board and the squash and zucchini into nickel slices.
I place them in a microwavable dish and 4 tablespoons of water to the dish. I cover the dish with a microwave safe lid. I microwave them for 3 minutes and then turn them over and give them another 3 minutes in the microwave. The times will vary depending on your microwave.
Once they are soft, I remove them from the microwave. I transfer them to a large glass bowl that is not so hot. I sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese over the squash and zucchini.
Next, I add 1/8 teaspoon of Himalayan salt and 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper to the squash and zucchini. Finally I take a fork, combine and serve up onto 4 small glass plates.
