Ingredients

  • 2 zucchini medium or large
  • 2 garlic cloves minced or sliced thinly
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-3 sprigs rosemary
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven. Pre-heat your oven to 220 C | 430 F
  • Slice the zucchini into wedges. Slice each zucchini in half lengthways, then half lengthways again. Then slice across the middle and then into wedges. Try to ensure that the wedges are fairly even in size.
  • Mix the flavours. Add the wedges, olive oil, garlic, rosemary and salt to a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Add wedges to a baking tray. Place the wedges on baking tray lined with baking paper. Add any remaining olive oil, garlic, rosemary and salt that is remaining in the bowl to the baking tray.
  • Bake in oven. Place the baking tray on the middle rack of oven and cook for 20-25 minutes until the edges start to turn golden.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • You can use either fresh or dried herbs in this recipe. My favourite way is using fresh rosemary, but oregano, chives or mixed herbs work well too.
  • You can use either fresh garlic or garlic powder in this recipe. If using garlic powder, then use 2 teaspoons to replace 2 garlic cloves
  • You may need to turn the tray around if you notice the wedges cooking quicker on one side of your oven.
  • Serve with garlic aioli or they are pretty tasty on their own.
