Food Recipes Roasted Zucchini with Garlic

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!!

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.

This is my favorite kind of recipe – quick, easy, and delicious (and healthy to boot)! Thank you so much for sharing it. The one thing I’ll do differently next time is TRUST YOU when you say 5 minutes plus just 2 or 3 more. I left them in for about 15 min (they were not getting brown – probably due to too much oil brushed on), so they came out pretty mushy, though still totally delicious. This is definitely my new go-to zucchini dish!
