Servings 4


  • 600 g zucchinis 4 large, 5 medium
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp each salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp parmesan grated (store bought sandy type is best)


  • Preheat oven to 240°C / 450°F (220°C fan) with the oven shelf set high in the oven.
  • Trim the ends off the zucchini. Cut medium zucchinis in quarters lengthwise, and large ones into sixths (halve then cut each half into 3 lengthwise to make 6 long "wedges").
  • Pile zucchini on a tray. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil, salt and pepper. Toss.
  • Line up in two rows so they're touching each other, with the skin side down.
  • Sprinkle evenly with breadcrumbs, then parmesan, drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil.
  • Bake 12 minutes until the parmesan is golden and zucchini is soft but not soggy.
  • Serve immediately!
