One of my Favorite Easy Zucchini Recipes

During the summer, our gardens are filled with more zucchini than we know what to do with, and I hunt down all my zucchini recipes. Here is one quick and easy way of preparing zucchini.

I had a variation of this baked zucchini the other night at a friend’s house and was amazed to hear her children exclaim, “Please give me some zucchini. I love zucchini!” Hello? When was the last time you heard that?

Roasted Zucchini with Garlic Recipe

Print
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 lb zucchini, each cut in half across the middle, then each half quartered lengthwise
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Herbes de Provence or dried thyme, or 1 teaspoon of fresh chopped thyme

Method

1 Toss zucchini and garlic with olive oil, spread out onto lined sheet pan: Preheat oven to 450°F. Make sure there is a rack on the top rack spot in the oven. Place the zucchini and garlic in a bowl and toss with olive oil.

Spread the zucchini out onto a foil or silicone-lined sheet pan, skin side down. Sprinkle with salt (1/4 to 1/2 a teaspoon).

2 Roast zucchini until it starts to brown, toss with herbs, salt, pepper: Roast the zucchini for 8-15 minutes, or until it begins to brown. (Start checking at about 7 minutes and keep checking every few minutes.)

Once the zucchini has started to brown at the edges, remove it from the oven and place the zucchini in a bowl. Gently mix in the herbs and salt and pepper to taste.

    Delicious!!! I made this tonight for tomorrow’s snack, and had to stop myself from eating the whole thing right out of the oven! I neglected to read the directions all the way through, and mixed everything together before putting it in the oven for 15 minutes, and then under the broiler for 5. Yumm-o!!
