Chili Roasted Zucchini – This easy zucchini recipe is one of our favorites. Simple spices make this the perfect easy side dish! (Paleo, Vegan, and Whole30 approved!)


  • 4 medium zucchini (about 1.5 lbs.), quartered lengthwise and sliced
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • a pinch of pepper (about 1/8 tsp, or to taste)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Optional: 2-4 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, minced.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. If you haven’t already, slice your zucchini. Use a knife to cut off the top and bottom ends and discard. Next, slice lengthwise (the long way) down the zucchini to halve it. Halve lengthwise again (so you have 4 long strips). Then, slice horizontally.
  3. Place all sliced zucchini in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and stir with a spatula to coat.
  5. Spread out on a baking sheet and roast at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, stirring halfway through, if you like.
