What a history, this recipe.

Way back in 2005, I was cooking a new vegetable recipe every day for an entire year. I was in full experimental mode and posted all the results, good or bad. Day 146's recipe for roasted zucchini had so much promise: it was simple and cheesy, then brightened with fresh mint. Instead, it was awful. I made it again, just to see: not awful, but forgettable.

Way back in 2008, it was time for an overhaul, a fresh start, a new recipe. The zucchini and feta remain, garlic and onion are added, the mint is nixed. The results? Delicious!

And now, all these years later? I roast zucchini with feta all the time.


Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Time to table: 35 minutes
Serves 4

1 pound zucchini, cut into thirds lengthwise, then into sixths
2 green onions, cut into lengths
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
1 ounce feta cheese, crumbled

Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Toss zucchini, onions, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper and feta in a large bowl. Arrange in a baking container with room enough to spread evenly in a single layer. Roast for about 25 minutes, stirring after 10 and 15 minutes, until zucchini are cooked but still quite firm.

  1. Sorry it didn't work out for you. Thanks for posting your findings. :)

  2. How annoying it wasn't as good as it sounded! I saw the picture and thought me gots to try that! Then I read the post. Hm. Good thing you have so many other lovely things I can try!;-) Thanks for the warning!

  3. When do you add the feta??

  4. Thanks for the close read, Cori, the feta goes right in with the zucchini and onion. I've fixed the instructions too.

  5. Yum! Great idea, I'm glad you've tweeked it and found one that works for you... have to give it a shot...
    BTW: The intro says you added garlic & onions... and I don't see the garlic???

    Thanks! Off to try it :D

  6. Aii, will someone please send me the memo mentioning that just because you can't sleep at 4am doesn't mean you can write a complete recipe? So sorry, all, thanks for your patience.

  7. Hey this was marvelous! I didn't have green onions so used up my vadalia onions instead. Added the garlic I knew should be there and stuffed it all in foil and cooked on the grill as per instructions from a previous email.

    The zucchini was not "firm" but not soft and very sweet and delicious. The feta was the perfect topper.
