Roasted Cucumbers and Onions with Fresh Herbs

Recipe by  

"I invented this recipe out of a need for a way to use the surplus cucumbers from a friend's garden this summer. I had never heard of someone roasting cucumbers, and a quick internet search turned up nothing, so I thought it would make an interesting culinary experiment. As it turned out, though, I discovered a new family favorite! This fast and easy recipe makes a great side dish for any occasion. Great with chicken or steak! I've even eaten it by itself for a light lunch. What more could you ask for?"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. Spread pieces of butter into the baking sheet and lay cucumber spears over the butter. Top with slices of sweet onion and scatter basil, parsley, cilantro, and mint over the top. Spray the vegetables again with olive oil cooking spray.
  3. Roast cucumber mixture in the preheated oven until cucumber spears begin to soften, about 10 minutes. Turn the cucumbers and onion slices over and return to oven; roast until cucumbers are tender, 15 to 20 more minutes.

Thanks,JRH143 for this recipe. A neighbor gave me an abundance of cucumbers and I've made all the pickles I wanted. I also froze cucumbers for a sweet/sour pork recipe so I was looking for something different. I didn't have a Vidalia onion so just used a yellow one plus one green onion. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly including all the fresh herbs. All of the herbs were great and the cilantro was a must. Delicious. I'll be making this again!
