Low FODMAP Roasted Zucchini with Lemon & Garlic

We love roasting as a technique for vegetables because it brings out their natural sweetness and provides a nice char at the same time.

This very simple, one-pan Roasted Zucchini with Lemon & Garlic is fabulous with any kind of roasted or grilled meat, such as our Garlic & Herb Roast Leg of Lamb or Brown Sugar Baked Ham.

Here we have simply sliced zucchini on the diagonal, and then tossed them with Garlic-Infused olive oil and very finely grated lemon zest. ‘

Use a Microplane zester (rasp-style) zester for the right texture lemon zest.

Salt and pepper balance everything out.

  • 1 ¼ to 1 1/2 pounds (570 g to 680 g) zucchini, about 3 medium
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Garlic-Infused Oil, made with olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons very finely grated lemon zest
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Position rack in upper third of oven. Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C. Have ready a rimmed baking sheet pan.
  2. Trim ends of zucchini and discard. Slice zucchini on the diagonal into 1/3-inch (8 mm) slices and place in a bowl. Toss zucchini slices with olive oil and lemon zest until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper and toss again. Scatter in an even layer on a rimmed sheet pan.

  3. Roast for about 20 minutes, shaking the pan halfway through, until zucchini are tender and beginning to show a little blistering here and there. Zucchini are ready to serve hot, warm or at room temperature.



  • When shopping for zucchini, choose smaller, slender vegetables for best results. Zucchini that are larger in diameter can be cottony.
