Notes

Storage and reheating
  • Let it cool down completely and then store in an airtight container. You can keep it in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • To reheat roasted zucchini, add a single layer on baking sheet and heat at 400 degree Fahrenheit for 3-5 minutes.
  • Since zucchini is a high water content vegetable, I do not recommend freezing it. It will get soggy and mushy when it freezes and will not become crispy when reheated.
