Step 2

Cut the zucchini in pieces (lengthwise) and remove the seeds.

Step 3

Place the zucchini in an oven roaster.

Step 4

Sprinkle them with enough olive oil.

Add fresh thyme.

Mix everything to make sure the herbs and olive oil are distributed properly.

Grate some lemon zest over the zucchini. It’ll give that extra spark to the appetizer.

Remove from the oven, place on a platter and serve.
