Roasted Zucchini

Zucchini means summertime to me. I love when everyone is trying to come up with creative ways to use up their excess zucchini.

Since Hubby and I don’t have a garden, I rely on the farmer’s market for the majority of our zucchini. But I do have one coworker who has a huge garden.

He brings in various vegetables that he’s trying to get rid of almost every day. I’ve snagged a cucumber for the watermelon cucumber salad that I made and also grabbed a nice sized zucchini (one day I grabbed a small zucchini, cleaned it, cut it, and snacked on it that afternoon!).

I thought about making something sweet with it but instead opted for a snack. I followed the method I use to roast asparagus. It is so simple and the outcome is amazing.

Roasted Zucchini

Yield: 2

Ingredients:

1 large or 2 medium zucchini, chopped in large pieces
1.5 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, sliced (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil to avoid a mess.

Place chopped zucchini on baking sheet.

Drizzle the olive oil over zucchini. Use your hand to stir it up so all the zucchini gets coated. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add garlic if using.

Roast in oven for 25 minutes, stirring once in the middle. Serve hot or at room temperature.

    I covet mushroom and asparagus recipes. I’m the only one in my family who will eat them- le sigh.
    This looks really good and I love pasta and shrimp too, I so could have helped you polish this off.

    Others given a capital letter in later printings were copyrighted names such as Kleenex,
    which appeared as kleenex in the first printing (the reason it was in the
    dictionary, of course, was that it had changed in usage from denoting a brand of
    tissue to being a synonym for tissue), but was thereafter capitalized under
    threat of lawsuit.
