Garlicky Zucchini Slices

This garlic zucchini slices recipe is one of my favorite quick appetizers / side dishes. It’s super easy and comes together so quickly. Dredged in the mixture of almond flour and arrowroot starch, zucchini slices are quickly seared to get a slight crunch outside and seal all the juices and flavor inside. My husband, not a zucchini fan, requests these every other week. It often turns out that the simplest recipes are often the best, and this recipe definitely proves that.
