Friday, December 7th, 2018, Recipes

Cheesy Zucchini Sticks are a low-carb, low-sucrose version of a classic comfort food. They only require a few basic ingredients, but what ingredients they are. Three of your favorite cheeses – parmesan, cheddar, and mozzarella – add creaminess and flavor. Couple the cheeses with garlic and red pepper, and you have a zesty treat that few will be able to resist.

Even better, these goodies are ready in little more than 30 minutes. The next time you are having a party or want to dress up an evening with fun food, these cheesy zucchini sticks will do the trick. As much as your family and guests will enjoy them, be ready to whip up another batch. Cheesy zucchini sticks are ideal for anyone who has sucrose intolerance*.

Sucrose and starch tolerance vary. Individuals may need to modify the recipe to meet personal diet goals.
