•    1 tsp of minced fresh dill

•    ½ tsp of salt

•    2 cloves of garlic, minced

For the crust

•    Preheat the oven to 325 °F.  Grease a glass tart pan.

•    In a large mixing bowl, mix the coconut flour, almond flour, garlic powder, and salt together.

•    Add the melted butter, and mix until the dough is crumbly.

•    Let it cool.

For the filling

•    Place the zucchini slices in one layer on a towel.  Sprinkle with salt.

•    Rinse the zucchini slices, and use paper towels to pat them dry.

•    In a large bowl, whisk together the whipping cream, ricotta, eggs, dill, garlic, salt, and pepper.

•    Stir in most of the zucchini slices, reserving enough for a layer on top of the tart.

•    Pour the mixture into the cooled crust.

•    Layer the remaining zucchini slices on top, and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.

•    Bake it for an hour.

•    Serve.
