Fried Zucchini with GarlicJune 13th, 2009 in Appetizers & Snacks, Sides by Julia Volhina
Total cooking time: 30min
Zucchini itself is low in calories and contains useful amounts of folate, potassium, manganese and vitamin A. Garlic is also very health-giving ingredient. And they both are combined in this fast to do and easy to do recipe.
Fried Zucchini with Garlic is very good on its own as a snack or an appetizer, however it is also perfect for poultry and meat entrees as a side dish.
Reduce amount of garlic if you are worried about a breath, but I really advice to keep garlic in, this dish isn’t so tasty without it. Fresh garlic can be replaced with garlic powder if needed.
- 2 zucchinis
- 2-3 garlic cloves
- Ground oregano
- Olive oil
How to make, step-by-step:
- Wash zucchinis in cold water, skin garlic:
- Slice zucchinis into pieces about 1/2 of the inch thick:
- Warm up a frying pan over moderate heat with 1-2 tbs of olive oil. Fry each piece of zucchini from each side till the moment it gets soft when you pierce it with a fork. If you see zucchini circles are getting too dark while are not so soft yet, reduce heat a bit:
- Take a bowl or a plate, put a portion of the zucchini circles which are soft already on it, season them with salt and ground oregano:
Slice clove of the garlic like it is show on the picture:
Then slice part of it like this over the bowl with fried pieces of zucchini:
- You will get a layer of fried zucchinis seasoned with oregano, salt and garlic, just like the following:
- Now you just need to repeat steps from #3 to #6 for all zucchini circles you have:
- Fried Zucchini with Garlic can be served as a side dish, snack or an appetizer. Make sure you serve zucchini together with seasoning:

I did it long ago, while still at home, but here is a recipe if you wish to try. I guess for roasted garlic one you will need to add roasted garlic to it 🙂 : 2 egg yolks, about 2 cups of oil (sunflower or olive), 0.5 teaspoon of salt, 0.5 teaspoon of sugar, 0.5 teaspoon of mustard, 2-3 tablespoons of lemon juice diluted with boiled and cooled down water to taste (or vinegar diluted as well). Combine egg yolks at room temperature, salt, sugar and mustard in mixing bowl and emulsify. Start adding oil (it should be at… Read more »
I usually pour greek yogurt after they are ready as in your photo, and it becomes a fresh summer dish. The yougurt takes the flavour of the garlic and zuchini and it is such a tasty dish. I love it.
Interesting idea, I will try it next time, I bet sour cream would work as well.
