Roasted zucchini gets dressed up with a lemony pistachio topping. Salting the zucchini just before you roast it helps prevent sogginess
The addition of the roasted pistachios elevates this dish from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
6 medium zucchini, trimmed and halved lengthwise
2 Tbs. olive oil
1/4 cup Farm Fresh Nuts Dry Roasted Shelled Pistachio Kernels Unsalted
2 Tbs. minced mint leaves
1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1. Preheat oven to 475°F. Toss zucchini with oil, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Place zucchini cut side down on 2 baking sheets, making sure they aren’t crowded. Bake 13 to 15 minutes, or until tender and lightly browned on bottom. Flip zucchini over onto serving platter.
2. Place pistachios, mint, garlic, and lemon zest in small bowl, and stir to combine. Drizzle lemon juice over zucchini, and sprinkle pistachio mixture over top.
