If you haven't come across the “zoodles” before – it is a contraction of the two words “zucchini noodles”. I have some great information about zoodles!

What Are Zoodles?

They can be used for so many recipes, and they work really well in this Zoodle Bake. When I wrote my zoodle information post several years ago, my preferred tool was a julienne peeler. Now it is much easier to find them pre-spiralized in grocery stores which is super convenient! I used pre-made ones in my Steak with Creamy Chipotle Sauce with Zoodles recipe.

Buying them ready-made isn't the cheapest option, however, and as I still haven't splashed out on a Spiralizer, my preferred tool is this hand-held spiral slicer from Microplane. It doesn't take up much space in my kitchen cupboards, and it works really well for zucchini.

How to Make a Zoodle Bake 

Make the zucchini into noodles using whichever method you prefer, then set them aside. Note: Try not to include the core of the zucchini, otherwise the finished dish may be too watery.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, ricotta, baking powder and a lot of black pepper – a balloon whisk is all you need for this. Stir in some grated mozzarella and the zoodles.Zoodle Bake - low carb / LCHF / keto side dish recipe

At this point you could add in any other flavorings that you fancy – herbs, spices, cooked bacon – whatever you like! Just remember to add them to the carb count if necessary.

Transfer everything to a baking dish (mine was 9×9″), and cover in foil. Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven, then remove the foil and bake for another 15-10 or until the middle of the bake has set.Zoodle Bake - low carb / LCHF / keto side dish recipe

Leave for 5 minutes to cool slightly before dividing into four portions and serving.

I'm anxious to try this but I was wondering if you could tell me what the purpose of the baking powder is?

It's about creating a lighter texture of the egg and ricotta mixture binding everything together. Feel free to try it without and let me know how it goes!

This zoodle dish looks delish! I bought presliced zucchini and I'd like to know how many cups 3 zucchini would be. Thanks!

I don't have any to measure at home right now, but CooksInfo suggests that 3 medium = 3 1/2 cups sliced. Source: http://www.cooksinfo.com/zucchini Hope that helps!
