LOW CARB ZUCCHINI LASAGNA

This Low Carb Zucchini Lasagna is a healthy and tasty alternative to normal lasagna. You don't need pasta or a heavy sauce for this delicious lasagna!
This Low Carb Zucchini Lasagna requires a bit of prep time in order for the flavors to really flourish, but it’s definitely worth it. If the sauce is allowed to simmer on the stove for the full 25 minutes, it will bring a lot of yumminess to the beef and zucchini. That’s it! It may look like a lot of work but it’s incredibly easy when you first get started. I make this all the time for guest and it’s one of the easiest recipes to make for a lot of people.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz. ground beef, 92%
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 4½ oz. onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 serrano chili
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 5½ oz. mushrooms
  • ½ cube Knorr chicken bouillon
  • ½ cup shredded low-fat mozzarella
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • Salt & pepper
  • Cooking spray


Instructions

  1. Use a julienne peeler to cut the zucchini into ½-inch (1 cm) slices. Sprinkle lightly with salt and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Blot the zucchini slices with a paper towel and grill or broil them in the oven for 3 minutes at high heat.
  3. After broiling, place the zucchini on paper towels (you want to get as much of the liquid out as possible).
  4. Cut off the ends of the tomatoes and make an X insertion on top. Place in boiling water for a few minutes. Pour cold water over, and peel off the skin.
  5. Roughly chop onions, garlic, chili, peeled tomatoes, and mushrooms.
  6. Add a little cooking spray to a deep skillet and fry the garlic, onion and chili for 1 min.
  7. Add the tomatoes and mushrooms to the skillet and sauté the vegetables for an additional 4 minutes. Then take them off the heat and set aside.
  8. Cook the beef in the same skillet with the paprika until fully browned.
  9. Add the vegetables back into the skillet together with the chicken bouillon and remaining spices and let it simmer for 25 minutes over low heat.
  10. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 C)
  11. Line a small baking tray with parchment paper and use 1/3 of the zucchini to make a layer in the bottom. Put 1/3 of the meat sauce on top. Add another layer of zucchini and continue like this until you’re out of sauce and zucchini
  12. Spread shredded mozzarella on top and bake for 35 minutes
  13. Take the lasagna out of the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
