- 1 pound zucchini
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

- Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
- Cut zucchini lengthwise into quarters, then cut into 2-inch-long sticks. Combine zucchini, oil, thyme, salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes in a medium bowl, and toss to coat.
- Transfer zucchini sticks to baking sheet, with a flesh side facing down. Roast until just softened and golden, turning so other flesh side is up halfway through, about 15 minutes.
