VEGGIES: Simple Roasted Zucchini

VEGGIES: Simple Roasted Zucchini
A couple weekends ago when I was at Haymarket I picked up some really cheap zucchini – it was $1 for 5 of them. I was really struggling for ideas. I could have made some zucchini bread but who needs the extra carbs. I decided to simply roast it with some spices. I did two different kinds – regularly spiced and spicy zucchini. We finished both trays! Some of them got really crispy and were like chips! They have become a staple in our house!

UPDATE 7/15/2015: Last night I used our first zucchini from the garden to make the regularly spiced version. We again ate BOTH trays in one sitting. They are ADDICTIVE!

Zucchini, sliced thinly with peel on
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

Cayenne Pepper
Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Pepper
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

**WARNING: These are REALLY spicy!

Sea Salt
Lemon Pepper or Fresh Ground Pepper
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Slice zucchini very thin and place on a lightly Pam’d cookie sheet. Use a brush and brush both sides of the zucchini with EVOO.
**Drizzling the EVOO might soak the zucchini too much and they won’t get crispy in the oven.
3. Spice them to your hearts content.
4. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until slightly crispy on the edges.
5. Enjoy!
