Sesame Roasted Baby Zucchini

I have a SUPER SIMPLE, tasty idea for you today using zucchini!

This is a genuinely EASY, budget-friendly, and all-out flavorful recipe to make on the weekends when everyone’s in the kitchen looking for something to snack on!

I truly adore zucchini, as it’s incredibly versatile and used in many of our beloved CFC recipes.

Sesame Roasted Baby Zucchini is wonderful as a quick side dish at dinnertime or a tasty afternoon snack!

Did you know?

Sesame seeds contain an array of healthy nutrients including essential fatty acids and amino acids.

A good source of protein and key minerals, they are a great addition to any diet (as long as you’re not allergic!).

I recommend finding raw sesame seeds and toasting them yourself at home. It’s easy and gives you the best-tasting toasted sesame seeds.

Toast in a skillet:

Set a small skillet on your stovetop over medium heat. When the skillet is hot, add your sesame seeds. After 30 seconds, swirl the sesame seeds with a wooden spoon so that they brown evenly for about 3 minutes. Lower your heat if you see smoke or the seeds are browning too much. Allow to cool. Enjoy!
