  • 4 small zucchini, quartered into spears
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  2. Arrange a wire rack on a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.
  3. In a large zipped plastic bag, combine the oil, salt, and pepper.

  4. Trim the ends of the zucchini and cut into quarters.
  5. Add the zucchini spears to the oil mixture and toss to coat on all sides.
  6. Arrange the zucchini spears onto the wire rack in an even layer, skin side down. (Make sure there is space between each spear.)

  7. Bake 12-15 minutes (or until the zucchini is tender).
  8. Increase the oven temperature to broil and cook until the spears start to turn golden brown (about 3 minutes).
