Zucchini Tortilla Bites

Serves 4, 2 triangles per serving with about 2 tbsp. of cooked arugula & zucchini per triangle bite


2 corn tortillas, cut into triangles
2 tsps. vegetable oil
1 zucchini, peeled into ribbons/noodles
1 cup arugula, washed
1 lime, juice and zest
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
Pinch red chili pepper flakes, optional


Set the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and place the corn tortilla triangles on a baking sheet. Place into the oven and cook the tortilla triangles for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they are crisp.

Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When ready, add the zucchini ribbons, the arugula, and the lime zest and juice. Cook until the vegetables have softened and the liquid has evaporated, about 5 to 8 minutes.

Then, take the tortilla triangles out of the oven and transfer them to a serving platter. Place a tablespoon of the cooked vegetables on top. Sprinkle with cilantro and red chili pepper flakes as desired. Serve and eat.
