Ingredients

  • 4 medium zucchinis

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
  • 2 tablespoons salt reduced soy sauce

  • toothpicks

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C

  3. Line an oven tray with foil and spray with oil. Lay zucchini ribbons on tray and spray again lightly with oil
  4. Bake zucchini ribbons in oven for 20 minutes or until zucchini is slightly soft and beginning to brown
  5. Finely chop any remaining raw zucchini. Saute zucchini, onion, spring onion and garlic in a non-stick frypan with olive oil for five minutes
