The Roasted Zucchini I Can’t Stop Eating

Let me introduce you to the roasted zucchini recipe I cannot stop eating. Zucchini is cut into bitesize pieces and roasted in a hot oven with garlic until tender and golden spots appear. Then, we throw on a handful of briny feta cheese and fresh dill. This zucchini recipe is better than I ever imagined, and I honestly can’t stop making it. For an equally delicious stovetop recipe, try our Garlic Butter Sautéed Zucchini!

How to Roast Zucchini

When roasting zucchini, you want to keep one thing in mind: Use a high temperature! To prevent soggy zucchini, we roast our zucchini in a 425° Fahrenheit oven. Or, if you feel bold, go for 450° F and roast for a few minutes less.

If your oven has the setting, using convection is an excellent idea. We don’t alter the oven temperature; instead, we watch the zucchini and assume it will take a few minutes less to finish roasting.

Recipe Variation: Vegan Roasted Zucchini

To make this recipe dairy free and vegan, leave the feta cheese out or swap it for vegan feta or a tablespoon of capers. Here are a few more vegan vegetable recipes for you:

My Best Tips For Roasted Zucchini

Use a hot oven. I mentioned this above, but it is an essential trick for the best roasted zucchini. Stick with a hot oven between 425° Fahrenheit and 450° Fahrenheit.

Don’t peel the zucchini. Peeled zucchini turns mushy and has no crunch. We share the same tip when making our Garlic Butter Sautéed Zucchini.

Add flavor. We add flavor with garlic, salty feta cheese (yum) and fresh dill. The combination of seasoned zucchini, feta, and dill makes this dish crave-worthy.

This Garlic Roasted Zucchini with feta and dill is better than I ever imagined, and I honestly can’t stop making it. This recipe is quick, simple, and delicious!

Serves 4

Watch Us Make the Recipe

You Will Need

1 ¼ pounds zucchini, 2 to 3 medium

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

2 ounces feta cheese

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

Directions

    Heat the oven to 425° Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet — we roast the zucchini directly on the baking sheet, but for easy clean-up, put down a silicone baking mat or a sheet of parchment paper.

    It is up to you how you cut the zucchini. You can slice the zucchini into 1/4-inch rounds, cut them into half moons, or chop them into bitesize pieces.

    Add the zucchini to your baking sheet. Scatter the olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper over it. Toss well, and then spread the zucchini into one layer.

    Roast the zucchini until they are tender and have picked up some color, 15 to 20 minutes.

    Remove the baking sheet from the oven, stir, and then crumble the feta cheese over the zucchini. Roast for another 5 minutes.

    Serve with fresh dill sprinkled on top.

    Do you think this has to be eaten straight out of oven or could it be served room temp at a potluck?

      Hi Jill, while I really enjoy this served warm, you can definitely serve it at room temperature.
