Thrown-Together #Lowcarb Lunch - Another WINNER!

I had about 7-8 small zucchini in the fridge so I cut off the ends and scooped out the few little seeds that were in there, tossed them with a little olive oil and roasted them in the oven at 425 on the top rack until they were crispy on the edges.

Meanwhile I mixed together a leftover half-can of chili (the kind made for chili dogs, which we had over the weekend) with an equal part of shredded colby-jack cheese. When the zucchini were ready I spooned the chili mixture on top, the covered it with more shredded cheese and put it back in the oven for about 5 minutes - until the cheese was melty, and the part that had fallen on the pan was brown and crispy.

I used a big pancake turner to lift it out onto 2 plates, topped with a generous amount of full-fat sour cream, then the little crispy cheese bits.

Even though I just ate it, my mouth is watering just talking about it, it was SO SO SO good! I'd even say it was better than the chili dogs we had on Saturday...thinking next time I'll also roast some onion and, yeah, maybe put some hot dogs in it too!


  1. Hi this is Scottie-who-is-now-retired. Just noticed we both love Gospel, renaissance and Celtic music. But our diets are fairly opposite. I started a new blog to track my vegan progress. I feel so good eating this way. I've had salmon twice but no other animal products since April 1and I don't miss them. I've come to believe cheese is evil. Hubby admits to feeling better too just from the extra fiber. I'm going to Craigslist all my low carb cookbooks, I'm that committed.

  2. LOL, definitely opposite when it comes to eating :). Good luck to you, I hope your cookbooks find good homes! Even though our diets are opposite (I'm a carnivore with omnivorous leanings), we also both "feel so good eating this way" - different ways, but our diets make us feel good, so we do share that also!

    I'll check in and see how you're doing, thanks for letting me know, and God bless!
