Zucchini is pretty high up on my list of favorite vegetables. How can you not like a vegetable that is equally delicious as a side dish and as a main component of a dessert?

I also love that you can easily sauté it or roast it. Or eat it raw, though that’s not my favorite.

HOW DO I ROAST ZUCCHINI IN THE OVEN?

It’s SO easy! Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Wash your zucchini, chop it into half moons, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with your favorite seasonings (I’m a huge fan of lemon pepper), then spread it into an even layer on your baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. I like to flip it and give it another 5 minutes, but that is up to you and how crisp you like your roasted veggies.

WHAT OTHER VEGETABLES CAN YOU ROAST?

I like to roast almost all of my veggies but here are some ideas and other variations:
