Zucchini Feta Roulade

This low carb zucchini roulade that makes a great main dish which is great served either cold or warm. Try a roulade in place of a frittata for a low carb egg dish.

You need to let the zucchini roulade cool slightly before spreading out the filling. The Feta cheese will not melt and although it takes a high heat to melt the cream cheese, you don’t want any oozing out of the sides. Just letting it stand for a few minutes should be fine. That way you can serve it warm immediately. It is just as delicious cold too

I took a gamble on the zucchini and didn’t cook it before putting it into the roulade. I crossed my fingers and toes on the magical absorption powers of coconut flour and it worked. I was a bit nervous that the mixture was going to be a bit wet, already planning to stir fry the failure for lunch and call it vegetable scrambled eggs. Thankfully it worked! Although if I make this again, I might try to gently cook the zucchini beforehand just to see what the difference is.

Ingredients
Roulade
  • 1 Medium 2 1/2 Cups Zucchini grated
  • 5 Eggs separated
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh mint chopped
  • 1/3 cup 38g coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Filling
  • 2 oz 56g Feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 Red pepper grilled/roasted cut into pieces
  • 2 oz 56g Cream cheese softened
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees.
  2. Grease and line a rectangle baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks.
  4. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and add the grated zucchini, coconut flour, mint, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir thoroughly.
  5. Gently fold in the egg whites until the mixture is combined.
  6. Pour the mixture into the tray and spoon out evenly.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes until firm.
  8. Whilst the roulade is baking make the filling by blending the cream cheese and feta together until it’s smooth. I use a spoon to beat the mixture.
  9. Add the red pepper and mix until combined.
  10. Once the roulade is baked, place it onto a parchment sheet on the kitchen counter. Allow to cool for about 2-3 minutes as you don’t want to burn your hands rolling it, nor want the filling to melt and ooze out when you roll it up.
  11. Remove the top layer of parchment paper (the one that was used during cooking).
  12. Spread the filling evenly across the roulade. It can be a bit rough as it will even out during rolling.
  13. From the small edge of the roulade and using the parchment paper underneath, gently roll the roulade up into a Swiss Roll shape.
  14. Trim off any edges for neatness.
