Ingredients

  • 4
    long narrow plum tomatoes
  • 4 small
    firm zucchini about 6 inches long
  • 4 clove
    garlic peeled
  • 2 Tbsp
    olive oil, extra virgin
  • 1/4 tsp

How to Make Zucchini Fans

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400-degrees.

    Wash tomatoes and cut each of them lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices leaving slices attached at the stem end so they can be opened like a fan. Each zucchini should have 4 slits.
  2. Arrange zucchini side by side in lightly oiled roasting pan with enough space between to fan them out. Slide a slice of tomato into each each slit and press down firmly on zucchini to create a fan with alternating segments of zucchini and tomato.
  3. Cut each garlic clove lengthwise into 8 thin slices; slide slices into fans alongside tomato slices. Brush entire surface of fans with oil, and sprinkle salt, pepper and herbes de Provence on top.
  4. Bake 30 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and fans are nicely browned on top. Using large spatula, transfer fans to 4 plates. Serve immediately.
