Serves 3-4 as a side dish
Our Almond Parmesan takes sautéed zucchini to mouth-watering heights! The delicate basil ribbons sprinkled in add just the right touch.


Almond Parmesan 2 pounds zucchini, thinly sliced into rounds, about 6 cups
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
4 leaves fresh basil, thinly sliced
1 pinch sea salt
4 turns freshly ground black pepper


  1. First, make the Almond Parmesan according to the recipe below.

  2. Next, heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini, about 2 tablespoons of water, and the garlic. Cook the zucchini for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until it is just tender and the skin is bright green. Add a few splashes of water as needed to prevent sticking. Sprinkle your zucchini with a generous amount of Almond Parmesan and the basil and toss to coat. Remove from the heat.

  3. Scoop the zucchini onto a serving plate, sprinkle with salt and pepper, top with another sprinkle of Almond Parmesan and serve the remaining on the side.

For the Almond Parmesan:


1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon granulated onion
1 teaspoon granulated garlic


  1. Grab a small bowl, and whisk together the almond flour, nutritional yeast, salt, onion and garlic. Be sure to break down any clumps of almond flour. Done!
