Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion diced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic minced
  • 2 cups fresh zucchini grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegan Parmesan cheese grated
  • 12 slices of baguette bread 1/2-inch thick
  • red pepper flakes optional garnish for serving

Instructions

  • Set the oven to Broil.
  • Into a large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the onion. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently until tender. Add the garlic and continue cooking for an additional 1 minute.
  • Add the grated zucchini, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Toss to combine with the onion mixture. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • Onto a baking sheet, arrange the baguette slices in an even layer. Set in the oven just long enough to lightly toast the bread.
  • Spoon the cooled zucchini bruschetta onto each piece of bread. Garnish with red pepper flakes, if using, and serve.
