By Amanda S., Gluten Free Edmonton

We are always looking for unique and tasty gluten free side dishes to accompany our meals. While we do eat a lot of salad, I find sometimes it’s good to change it up a little bit and add in some other vegetables and flavour combinations.

The other day when I tried the zucchini crust pizza I was unsure about how much zucchini to buy, so I sorta over bought and now I’m trying to find new and interesting ways to use up the leftover zucchini. There’s the ole faithful, grilled zucchini or chocolate zucchini bread, but I was looking for something easy, quick and different today. This is what I found (courtesy of

Gluten Free Zucchini Side Dish 
Sesame Parmesan Zucchini

Yield 4 servings


  • 1 medium zucchini, quartered and cut into 1/2-inch slices 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil 
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds 
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt 


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). 
  2. In a large bowl, toss the zucchini with the olive oil, sesame oil, sesame seeds, Parmesan cheese, cayenne pepper, and garlic salt. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. 
  3. Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned


Mmm mmm mmm. That’s all I can say. It was a great way for us to use up some of the zucchini I bought with limited effort required. To me it is always a plus if you already have all of the ingredients in the cupboard anyways. Pure and simple!
