Ambassdor Annie of KetoFocus is helping us celebrate National Cheese Day! Make this veggie dish with fresh mint, pesto, and our Miracle Rice!
"It’s that time of year when zucchini is in abundance and your friends, family, even strangers are pawning off their obnoxious excess of zucchini to you. Or maybe you are said person growing a large enough yield to open a stand at the farmers market. Either way, this is an amazing MUST TRY keto recipe for the zucchini in your life.
For the keto rice, I use Miracle Noodle Rice. It's gluten-free, grain-free, and zero net-carbs. The Miracle Noodle rice and zucchini are combined with mint and pesto...a surprisingly incredible combination.
