If you have an abundance of courgettes ( zucchinis) then this Roasted Courgette Recipe (Roasted Zucchini) is one for you. It is quick and easy and is perfect for bringing more flavour to those slightly large courgettes in your bounty.
How To Roast Zucchini
- Chop Zucchini into your desired shape and place in baking tray.
- Add the seasoning and oil mix well.
- Bake in the oven for about 20 mins (turning at least once) until are cooked through but not too soft.
This recipe is really a guide on how to roast courgettes. The key thing is to not to ‘over’ roast the zucchini so that they don’t end up too soft (although if you prefer them softer then please over roast away). Check them every couple of mins if you roast them for more than 20 mins.
Play around with the flavours and throw in whatever tickles your taste buds. On lazy I can’t be bothered to think days, I tend to vary between dried mixed herbs or dried mint.
Benefit of Roasted Courgette In The Fridge
I tend to roast large amounts of courgettes and just stick them in the fridge for up to a week. This makes life very very simple as it means I always have quite a lot of quick and easy meals and weeknight supper pretty much to hand. Then I eat them simply on top of some pasta with grated Parmesan, in a pesto sandwich, in a frittata or just thrown into a salad.
For the kids I mash the roast courgette into a veggie-loaded pasta sauce, add it to pizza or even use this to bulk up burgers. Adding these to savoury muffins, scones and other bakes can make them taste so much better. Trust me, these should always be a fridge staple.
