Detoxifying ingredients can also be very versatile when it comes to healthy and delicious choices, and these zucchini wedges are proof. The nut parmesan enhances the discrete flavor of the baked zucchini, also creates a contrast between the soft texture of the vegetable and its crunchy coating. There’s also built-in health benefits, because the healthy monounsaturated fat in the nuts helps for better absorption of the carotenoid antioxidants in zucchini. Delicious flavor is always an added bonus!Print
