Zucchini Rice FINAL

Make sure to repin this recipe

Zucchini has to be one of my favorite veggies ever. Knowing this my mom planted a ton of it! I have basically been thinking every way to use zucchini in a meal to use them all up. I have not even started thinking about ALL the roma tomatoes she has grown as well. My mom has the best green thumb I have ever seen.

Here is my mom with one of the Zucchinis – I used this one in this dish


Zuchinni Rice

 This is all that you will need. Feel free to use more veggies – when I make this again I am going to add juice of another lime ( but I am sucker for limes) and red and green bell pepper.

I loved this dish – it is also naturally gluten – free which is TOTALLY awesome! I had the rice dish for lunch and dinner — really heats up well again.

This is a great side dish – I am thinking a nice ranch chicken would be a perfect pairing. This dish is fresh but so easy and inexpensive to make.

What is your favorite side dish? Make sure to leave a comment – I would love to try new side dishes – I love when I can add fresh ingredients.

The corn and beans are from a can 🙂
