Skinny Bruschetta Zucchini Chips a low calorie, meat free, and dairy free, option for game day but still packs a punch of flavor from a few secret ingredients! This is a must try for sure!
Ok, so I may have done this a little backwards but just go with it. Monday, I posted an all beef recipe – Bacon Wrapped Tenderloin Bites to be exact, and today I am going meat free AND dairy free.
You’d think I would have posted a meatless meal on Monday for Meatless Monday but… you know … whatever! We are still all about the football food today’s and the recipe is killer! Today it’s a riff off one of my favorite appetizers – Bruschetta.
I am obsessed with the stuff. In fact there are some nights Mike and I will put our little guy down for bed and I’ll whip up a quick bruschetta that we’ll eat for dinner with a glass of wine. Pure perfection.
I love that Bruschetta is light and fresh but the one thing that “weights” this dish down a little bit is the bread. Carb city man!
As a way to lighten this dish up I’ve partnered with Silk to make these Crispy Zucchini Chips to replace the bread and then topped them with fresh Bruschetta. Ya’ll these are WAY better than the original. I am officially hooked! HOLY MOLY!
The zucchini is thinly sliced, coated with flour, then dipped in Silk Unsweetened Cashew Milk and tossed in a bowl of panko for some crunch. Then they are slightly browned in a skillet with grape seed oil and topped with fresh tomato Bruschetta!
I seriously could not stop popping these in my mouth. Even while I was taking photos of them I was literally taking a bite and dancing around the room with pure joy from the delicious flavor! Mike was laughing at me and Cason was wondering why mommy was dancing! 🙂
If you’re looking for a way to sideline meat at your next game day party, these Skinny Bruschetta Zucchini Chips is it! Easy, full of flavor, dairy free, meat free and all around delicious!
I seriously cannot wait for you guys to try these! Yeah for game day food and double yeah for healthier game day food! Bon Appetite my friends!
