That's right, you know that zucchini is good for you. Now you have no excuse they are hanging, still packed, in your fridge. Here is no-effort recipe for zucchini that can be done in your toaster-oven in 10 minutes.

No, no, no. Nothing too hard for cooking today. You could eat those zucchini raw. Or may be couple extra moves and you have them as steaming, flavorful and juicy side for your yesterday's chicken leftovers. Try this shamefully easy recipe. Even my not-zucchini-guy son liked it a lot!

In a Nutshell

- Minimal prep work - just slice your zucchini in half
- A few, just right, toppings - salt, pepper, extra-virgin olive oil and grated parmesan
- Quick roasting makes zucchini juicy, flavorful, but still crisp-tender
- As a finger food, use baby-zucchini or cut zucchini half across into bite-size pieces.

Taste Description

Take a bite - it's very juicy. but still slightly crisp. Parmesan crust gives an additional flavor and pleasant crunch. On a top of natural subtle sweetness of zucchini, along with tender kick of black pepper and herb aroma, it will create complex taste you will love.

Easy Roasted Zucchini

  • 3 zucchini sliced in half 
  • 3 tbs finely grated parmesan
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • dry oregano (or other dry or fresh herb of your choice)
  • extra virgin olive oil

- Preheat oven to 400F. Or use toaster-oven as me. In this case there is no need to preheat it.
- Place zucchini cut side up on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle some salt, black pepper and parmesan.

- If using regular oven, roast for about 10 minutes or until top is beige-golden.

- If using toaster-oven, pop zucchini in and turn heat on. Roast for about 10 minutes as well.

- Remove from an oven. Sprinkle with dry oregano (or other herb), rubbing it in between palms.

- Enjoy!
