Healthy Side Dish

Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min

This side dish is perfect for a family meal and it is easy to prepare.


  • 2 pounds zucchini
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Cooking Directions

    Position a rack 5 or 6 inches from the broiler element and preheat the broiler.

    Rinse the zucchini and pat it dry. Cut the zucchini in half crosswise; then cut each half lengthwise into 6 to 8 wedges. Smash the garlic cloves, and cut each clove in half.

    Place the zucchini, garlic and all the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, and toss well to coat.

    Place the zucchini mixture in a 12-inch oven proof skillet, and broil, tossing the pieces occasionally, until it is well caramelized, about 15 minutes.

    Remove from the broiler, discard the thyme sprigs, and serve immediately.

    4 to 6 servings
