Zucchini (Green Squash) - Baked or Roasted

We usually select the quantity of zucchini based upon whether we are having it as a side dish or a main dish.  Begin by washing the zucchini and removing the stem and flowering ends.

If you have a large zucchini, cut into four inch lengths and then slice each piece lengthwise into 1/4 - 1/8 inch slabs (see photo above).  If you want to eat the zucchini as finger-food, we suggest cutting the slabs in half (lengthwise).

If you have small zucchini, cut them lengthwise (see photo below).

Place the zucchini pieces on a nonstick baking sheet for cooking in a conventional oven, or in an uncovered glass baking dish if cooking in a microwave oven.

Sprinkle on some oregano and black pepper to taste, and bake at 350-400 degrees in a conventional oven or on high in a microwave oven.

When the zucchini begin to dry out on the surface, remove from the oven and serve.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-17)
