Meatless Monday #6

It's been a while since I last posted a Meatless Monday recipe. I'm still trying to convince my husband that we don't need to have meat for a meal to be "substantial". He LOVES veggies, but he's a farmer. He's a meat and potatoes guy...and he loves meat. He's been pretty good with the Meatless Mondays though.

One of our favourites (okay, one of my favourites) is Zucchini Pizza. I began making Zucchini Pizza a few years ago when we had some massive zucchinis from the garden. I didn't know what to do with all that zucchini that my friend, Rosie suggested one of her family's favourite zucchini recipes.

  • 1 medium zucchini sliced (not too thinly)
  • tomato paste or pizza sauce
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Italian Seasoning
  • S & P
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

First, turn broiler on high. Next, line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and drizzle with EVOO.

Slice zucchini. Slather each zucchini slice with about a teaspoon of tomato paste/pizza sauce and place on the cookie sheet paste side up. Sprinkle with spices. Top with cheese.

Broil for 2 minutes. The cheese should start to get golden. Simple. Easy. Delicious.

I serve these pizzas with a salad on the side.

I always have to stop and think when I see the term 'broil' used.

We use 'grill' when food is cooked by putting under the top element.

How interesting! Amazing how English terms differ from country to country. We use "grill" when something is cooked on a "grill" (like on a BBQ grill)!

I love the differences. I find them so fascinating! Like "lift/elevator", "boot/trunk", "lorry/truck", "jumper/sweater", "pants/underwear"...I can go on and on!
