How Long to Cook Zucchini
If you're going to sauté zucchini, it will take about 15 minutes to cook once the oil in the pan is piping hot. Zucchini is also delicious when roasted. Put in the oven for about half an hour to cook it to perfection. We recommend seasoning it with lemon, oregano, and basil. You could also steam or boil zucchini, which should only take around 5 minutes. We recommend roasting or pan-frying it for the best flavor. Zucchini will become a little yellow with spots of browning when roasted and pan-fried. You'll know it's ready to eat when these colors appear and it's tender when poked with a fork.
