BEST Baked Zucchini with Garlic and Lemon
- 3 medium zucchini ends removed and cut in half lengthwise.
- 2 garlic cloves thinly sliced.
- 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Squeeze of lemon juice
- Salt & Pepper or Natures Seasons
Pre-heat the oven to 400°F
Cut the zucchinis in half, than slice flesh in a crisscross pattern.
Place zucchini (cut side up) on a baking sheet lined with foil, than season them lightly and sprinkle over the garlic slices.
Drizzle each zucchini with olive oil and a little lemon juice.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until zucchini are soft. Serve whole and let your guests use their knives for a change!
I used my countertop toaster oven and it took 30 minutes. It will probably be closer to 40 minutes in a standard oven.This idea was modified from Gordon Ramsey's Healthy Appetite, except he intended it cup up and mixed into risotto; "Baked Zucchini and wild mushroom risotto" pg161. I served the zucchini whole and it was a hit!!
