I love end-of-summer recipes like this Greek zucchini and yellow squash. This easy roasted vegetable recipe is so full of flavor, thanks to a nice sprinkling of Greek seasoning and black pepper on the squashes.
If you haven’t yet tried Greek seasoning on roasted or grilled vegetables, you should! The flavors are definitely unique and delicious. I have a great recipe for Simple Homemade Greek Seasoning you might like to try. If you don’t have time to run to the store, but have the ingredients on hand, you can mix some up right away! You can also use Greek seasoning in salad dressings, on any cooked vegetable, and even add it to hummus. Try it sprinkled on top of this oil free hummus recipe in place of the za’atar.
This is a great every day side dish, but it’s perfect with a holiday meal, too. Serve it for Thanksgiving or Christmas, or any fall or winter holiday. A lot of our holiday dishes are heavily seasoned and bursting with flavors. This one is flavorful, but simple. When served among the more complex dishes, it gives the pallet a little rest.
When cooking this, you can use a combinaton of zucchini and yellow squash or use all of one or the other. As long as the amount of squashes adds up to 2 cups, you’re good to go.
If you want to add a little more flavor, or even color, to the zucchini and squash, slice one whole (seeded and pulp removed) red bell pepper and add it in. You don’t need to increase the amount of oil or seasoning used. Just slice it and toss it onto the baking dish with the chunks of squash.
Once you try this dish, you might just go crazy with the Greek seasoning. Let me know what you come up with!
