We’re meat-eaters. Heathen meat-eaters.
People often say they can’t live without meat. I don’t think they mean it literally. I think they mean “I think it would be very difficult to live without meat.”, but sometimes it’s just cheaper to have a meal without meat. So if you dress up your veggies, and serve them up like these Zucchini Parmesan Bites, you won’t miss the meat. I promise.
Plus, your wallet will equally be as happy as your bellies. Serve them in place of starchier side dishes like potato chips or French fries for a healthy swap!
