Roasted zucchini and squash recipe

This is an easy go-to side dish! You can even just toss this on the grill and cook it on there in a metal pan instead.

It is probably my favorite side dish and with summer around the corner, I am slowly starting to include more of these lighter sides with our meals. 😉

The texture of the veggies really taste amazing. They are tender on the inside and the outside is seasoned to perfection!

What is the difference between zucchini and squash?

There are a few differences between zucchini and squash. Zucchini is green and has a long and straight shape. Whereas squash is yellow and tends to be larger at the bottom and decreased in size toward the other end.

Both zucchini and squash taste very similar. Squash is slightly sweeter but for the most part, they are both very similar.

Should Zucchini be peeled before roasting?

No, it is not necessary to peel zucchini before you cook it. The peeling will become softer as the zucchini cook.

You can certainly peel if if you opt to but it is not necessary at all. I think the vibrant green color looks so pretty and you can’t really taste the peeling.

So, save yourself the time and leave the peeling on.

How do you keep zucchini from getting soggy?

High heat helps to prevent the veggie from becoming soggy. You can also try salting zucchini before hand and letting the veggie sit a few minutes before baking. This will release some of the moisture.

This step isn’t necessary though as I have found just the high heat alone seems to produce the perfect zucchini.

Tip for roasted zucchini and squash and onions:

One of our favorite time saving tips is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop onions.

If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you make cooking so fast and easy.

I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.

This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Learn and  how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen! Lots of the recipes we cook call for onions and peppers so this is such a great time tip that we use frequently.

    This tastes great! Only thing I changed was I used a Vidalia onion because that’s all I had. Will make again for sure!

  2. Wil this recipe work with peeled squash? I can’t have the peels with my medication.
    Thanking you in advance.

  3. I haven’t tried that but I think it’ll work fine. I would reduce the cook time to 10-15 minutes as I think the squash might cook faster without the peel. Let us know how it turns out. Thank you!
