Ingredients

  • 1 large zucchini, sliced into 1/4 inch thick pieces
  • 1 large avocado, cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 4 slices vegan mozzarella cheese, cut into 1 inch triangles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Top each zucchini slice with a slice of avocado, a triangle of cheese, a drop of olive oil, and a dusting of garlic powder.

Notes

  • Vegetarian and vegan
  • For a lower calorie version with a kick, substitute the garlic powder and olive oil with a drizzle of hot pepper sauce.
  • If you can’t find vegan mozzarella, look for vegan provolone. Otherwise, leave off the cheese and you’ll still have an enjoyable snack.
