Zucchini carpaccio is the perfect combination of all your favourites, roasted, and topped off with a drizzle of homemade vinegar dressing. I hope your mouth is watering because I'm practically drooling over my keyboard (poor laptop). It can be enjoyed as a small meal by itself, as a side to a main meal, or as a snack throughout your day. Just don't expect left any leftovers! In my opinion, this recipe is perfect to keep in the cookbook because of its versatility. 

To make this recipe you will need 35 minutes and 7 easy to find ingredients and a small bowl. I'm not a fan of dishes and cleaning up, so fewer dishes is a big plus for me in any recipe (because who has time to clean up these days)! 

Not only is this recipe loaded with amazing vegetables that offer us a great range of essential vitamins and minerals, it is also low in fat, carbohydrates, and sugar. It offers a small amount of protein from natural sources and overall, is a 'feel good' dish. What is a feel good dish you may ask? A feel good dish is the kind that nourishes your body and mind with good nutrients and the satisfaction of a healthy, vegan, and naturally sourced meal.

With the combination of zucchini, cucumber, tomato, and onion, this dish gives us essential nutrients such as vitamin A, magnesium, folate, potassium, Omega-3, vitamin K, and vitamin C (to name a few). 

Zucchini carpaccio is great as a whole meal or side dish because they are: 

  • Highly nutritious.
  • Easy to make.
  • A real crowd pleaser - impress your family and friends! 
  • Low in Fats and Carbs
  • Super tasty.

I would not recommend storing these if they are not eaten. The meal will go soggy and simply not taste very good at all. However, there probably won't be leftovers, so don't worry! This recipe will make a serving for 3 people. If you don't wish to make as many servings, simply half the ingredients or divide it by three (to give you one serving).
