Recipe: Roasted Garlic, Zucchini and Tomato Bake

A colorful side to brighten any meal

This colorful and healthy side dish will brighten any meal. Garlic is a super veggie that helps reduce risks for cancers of the colon, stomach, esophagus, pancreas and breast. Tomatoes and zucchini are packed with vitamins and minerals. Plus, you can puree any leftovers for a yummy salsa dip!

Ingredients

2 zucchini cut in half lengthwise, then cut into ½-inch, half-moon shapes
2 cups quartered ripe tomatoes (or grape tomatoes)
½ sweet onion, minced (or red onion to add color)
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
¼ cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 450°. Lightly oil a 9×13-inch baking dish.
2. Combine the zucchini, tomatoes, onion, garlic and red pepper flakes in the prepared baking dish.
3. Drizzle with the olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and mix well.
4. In a separate small bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and fresh basil. Set aside.
5. Roast vegetables until tender or slightly golden, about 18 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with the Parmesan mixture. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    Pretty picture and I’m sure it’s tasty,
    but I noticed in the list of ingredients, the amount of onion has been left out. It does appear in the directions, however.

      Thank you Lil. We’ve corrected the “onion issue” in the recipe. Enjoy!
      Sincerely,

    And, if you leave the dairy products out of it, it will be even healthier..

    Has anyone tried roasted tomatoes (can,diced) instead of fresh tomatoes? Forgot to get fresh but i have canned already.

  • google

    I have been told that when you heat olive oil (also other oils) to a temperature over 400 degrees, that it changes to trans fats. Is that true? Has anyone else heard that?

  • JAN

    Tried it just simply delicious

    should be minimal carbs since it’s all veggies, protein (cheese) & olive oil. The tomato may have a few. I think I would make it with even less or no olive oil :)

    I made this today. it was really good! I added chick peas to it.
