Roasted Zucchini Flatbreads

Zucchini, here they come! This recipes captures early zucchini and bakes them into sweet goodness on a flatbread. It’s delicious served hot, cold or the next day. Substitute gluten-free pita bread as needed.

I first saw this recipe on Suziesfarm.com.

Ingredients

4 small zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch thick rounds (about 1 1/2 pounds)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt
4 round, pocketless whole-grain pita
1/3 cup prepared hummus
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
2 cups baby arugula
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1 lemon, quartered, for serving

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the zucchini on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil, then sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt; mix well and spread to 1 layer. Roast until browned and very tender, about 30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Warm the pita on a grill or griddle until nicely toasted, but still soft, and spread each with 1 heaping tablespoon hummus. Top each piece with 1 tablespoon crumbled goat cheese, 1/4 of the roasted zucchini, about 1/2 cup baby arugula, and 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped almonds. Serve with a lemon wedge.
