Lay each slice on a prepared cookie sheet. I used parchment paper, but aluminum foil works great too!

I used these lovely herbs from my container garden but you can use dried herbs also. Just be aware you don't need as much. Dried herbs can be more intense in flavor.

I loathe to resort to using cheese to get folks to eat their veggies but it seems to work-- and we all need to eat more vegetables.

I have my bread crumbs, herb, cheese, salt, and pepper mix ready to go. If you are salt sensitive just leave it out; the cheese has plenty of flavor.

Zucchini or Onion gratin

  • 1 large Zucchini or onion, slice to about 1/4 inch
  • 1/4-1/2 cup fresh basil or oregano or a combo of both, You can also use dry but only use about a tablespoon
  • 3/4 to 1 cup bread crumbs, gluten free works nicely too!
  • 1/2 cup parmesean reggiano, finely grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, extra virgin organic

Zucchini or onion gratins

  1. Pre heat oven to 400 degrees. Wash your zucchini, or, if you are using an onion, peel off the skin. Then slice into 1/4 inch rounds and lay on a prepared cookie sheet. I used parchment paper but aluminum foil works well, too.
  2. Mix together in a small bowl, your herb or herbs of choice, bread crumbs, cheese, salt, and pepper.
  3. Paint each zucchini or onion round with the olive oil on both sides. Then add 1 around one tablespoon of the bread crumb mixture per round.
  4. Place the tray in the 400 degree oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. The bread crumbs will have a nice toasted look on top. Serve hot!

Zucchini or onion rounds

These zucchini and onion rounds are super-fast and super-delicious. I get a lot of requests for making vegetables so the whole family will eat them. This recipe is a healthy twist on the fried version. This version is healthier, faster, and an easier clean-up. What's not to love?

Cooks note: If you want to cut even more time in this recipe, you can skip painting each round with olive oil and just drizzle it on top of the bread crumb mixture once you have added it to each round.
