Print

I don’t remember when or why cooking decided to become complicated. What happened to the days of enjoying a lovely piece of fresh organic tomato, with salt, a bit of EVOO, on a good wholesome slice of homemade bread? This healthy recipe for Lemon Herb Baked Zucchini brings the simple, but good, back into cooking.

What did we become so afraid of? I think by creating simple dishes like this baked zucchini dish, we allow ourselves to become more connected with the foods we eat, and simply eating less complicated dishes is the first step to better understanding what we are putting into our bodies. When you can finally appreciate all those food flavors you’ve regained an appreciation for each seasonal vegetable and fruit.

What I love about this recipe is that it can be made as healthy, fresh side and goes well with so many things. It’s great in the summer, or the fall when squash season is here, and you’ll be able to whip it up super quick. Zucchinis are super versatile vegetables and I love to use them in a lot of my recipes. You can use them in pasta dishes, casseroles, stuff them, you can even make baking out of them. Plus, they’re loaded with healthy benefits.

Just throw it in the oven, and this yummy baked zucchini recipe is ready to wow your guests quick!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Zucchinis are high in antioxidants, fiber, and beta-carotene. Antioxidants help fight free radicals, fiber aids in digestion and beta-carotene can improve eye health and vision.
