Roasted Corn and Zucchini

During the summer we always raid my parent's garden whenever we stop by to visit. 
Really they don't mind - honest :) 
I asked Madison to find me some zucchini and this is what she brought me. I could probably make a thousand zucchini muffins with this thing!

My favorite quick and easy summer side dish is Roasted Corn & Zucchini.  It's super easy and good for you too.  Use fresh corn cut off the cob if you have it, but frozen works also.  I didn't have any red pepper when I made the recipe below, but it looks really pretty if you have one.

Roasted Corn & Zucchini

Zucchini, diced
1 cup corn, frozen or fresh cut off the cobb
1/2 onion, diced
red pepper, diced
olive oil
fresh ground salt & pepper

Combine zucchini, corn, onion and red pepper in a bowl and toss with olive oil.
Spread veggies out on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with freshly ground salt and pepper.
Bake at 425 for about 15 minutes.  Now isn't that easy!

Yes, I stole the zinnia's from their garden too :)


  1. Çok güzel bahçeniz var. Çok leziz ve iştah açıcı bir yiyecek olmuş ellerinize sağlık.

  2. Out garden has zucchini this year but the cucumbers have taken over! I wanted to let you know I love your site (and your color choice in mixers!) I've been reading through your recipes and I've been bookmarkign along the way. I have an award for you over at Sunny Bug:

  3. Darn but that thing is huge! I'm soooo jealous. My father in law has 12 acres and has a huge garden as well but he's in NC and I'm in FL. I did get some of his honey when I visited just recently.

    Happy Friday!

  4. Oh...that sounds delish! I posted a corn salad recipe this past week.....I'm into the corn thing! And soon to be into zucchini.....I have 3 sitting on my counter right now :) Thanks for sharing.

  5. And I thought my dad's zucchinis were huge! I have a post on my blog for zucchini flowers. Do you cook them? They are delicious!
