Roasted Zucchini with Garlic

36.24 Try 50 new recipes

I had some zucchini in the fridge for a recipe that didn't happen when life went sideways in the days of evil illness. And it was at the point where it wasn't going to be good for very long. We were having salmon with roasted vegetables, so I thought I'd see about roasting zucchini. I love grilled zucchini, but I wasn't about to get the grill out if I was already roasting stuff.

I turned to the every trusty internet and found this recipe at Simply Recipes.

It turned out pretty well, although J wouldn't eat it! I didn't brush my zucchini, I tossed it like I did with the carrots and broccoli. And I didn't use herbs de provence on the other vegetables, but I did sprinkle some on the steamed potatoes. I had a hard time getting the zucchini to brown - it was pretty soft...

And two zucchinis make a whole lot of roasted zucchini. Alex took some in his lunch and I chopped the rest up and added them to scrambled eggs. I sauteed them a bit before I added them to the eggs (no oil, there was enough oil on them from being roasted).

Yum...I think we'll have this again, but I'll probably only do one zucchini at a time!
