Marinated Zucchini


Marinated Zucchini

2 pounds zucchini, unpeeled
1 ½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice


Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Trim ends of zucchini, and cut in half lengthwise. Feed zucchini halves through the tube of a food processor with the slicing disc attached. You may also use a mandoline to cut the zucchini into thin slices or cut them by hand. Place slices in a large bowl. Add olive oil, and stir to coat. Mix in garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir again.
Place zucchini on two large 11 x 17-inch baking sheets, trying to separate the pieces as much as possible so they are in a single layer. Roast 10 minutes, flip, and then roast another 5 minutes. Edges of zucchini should be slightly browned and crispy.
Remove zucchini from oven, and put in a large dish. Stir in lemon juice. Cover, and let sit at least 1-2 hours. Serve at room temperature.
Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about ½ cup)
