Amongst the simple few ingredients, this delicious zucchini gratin recipe takes only 10 minutes to prepare. A healthy, low carb and gluten-free Baked Cheesy Zucchini Casserole that is perfect for the whole family.


3 medium Zucchini (sliced in 1/4″ thick slices)
Sea salt
Black pepper
1 1/2 cup Swiss Gruyere shredded cheese blend (or any shredded sharp cheese; divided)
3 oz Brie cheese (edges cut off)
1/3 cup Heavy cream
2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of choice)
1 tbsp Butter
2 cloves Garlic (minced or crushed)
1/2 tbsp Italian seasoning


Step 1: Add the zucchini slices with sea salt and toss. Transfer into a colander and place it on top of the sink. Drain for about 45 minutes. Then, pat dry.

Step 2: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F or 204 degrees C.

Step 3: Arrange the zucchini slices in a small 1.5-quart or 1.5-litre casserole dish in different overlapping rows. Between each row, very lightly sprinkle with half of the shredded cheese using approximately 3/4 cup of cheese. Lightly sprinkle with black pepper to season.

Step 4: In a small saucepan, combine the brie, cream, milk, and garlic.

Step 5: On the stovetop, heat for several minutes over low to medium-low heat. Stir frequently until the cheese has melted and the mixture is smooth. Add sea salt to taste if desired.

Step 6: Evenly pour the mixture over the zucchini.

Step 7: Then, sprinkle the rest of the 3/4 cup shredded cheese blend over followed by the Italian seasoning.

Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes or until the cheese is dark golden brown and the zucchini is soft.
