Recipe Notes

Don't slice the zucchini too thin or they will break when you try to roll them. I got about 5 slices from each zucchini, of course it will depend of the size if the zucchinis. I suggest buying zucchini that are long. Discard the two outer slices that are mainly skin.

Let the strips of zucchini cool down before you roll up.
