This is my new favorite way to eat zucchini. The outside is charred just a bit while the inside gets creamy and smooth.
It’s ridiculously easy to prepare and impressive when you serve it.
- 3 medium zucchini
- 3 T olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Slice the zucchini in half lengthwise, then score along the inside flesh to make a crosshatch
- Brush with olive oil
- Salt and pepper lightly
- Place face down in a medium hot skillet until the zucchini browns a bit
- Put immediately into a 400 degree oven and let roast until the flesh gets soft, about 20 minutes
