Recipe Notes

Macros (per serving):

Calories: 479 kcal – Fat: 31.81 g – Net carbs: 4.4 g (total carbs: 5.5 g, fiber: 1.1 g) – Protein: 41.17 g

Discarding the seeds of the zucchini makes this dish extremely keto-friendly, as emptying a medium zucchini (of about 150 g) leaves you with only about the half of the flesh. Of course, you can keep the seeds to use in another dish.

Instead of gouda cheese, you can use any other medium hard cheese that you have – cheddar, Swiss cheese, Edam. Mimolette, which might be harder to find, is entirely optional and can either be skipped or substituted with another hard cheese. In fact, in addition to the mozzarella, which is simply delicious when melted, you can use all the cheese leftovers that you have in your fridge, as long as they are medium hard or hard cheeses.
