  • Dried garlic Powder
  • Pepper powder

Mixed herbs

  • Dried oregano
  • Dried rosemary
  • Chili flakes
  • Salt to taste


  • Mix garlic powder, pepper powder, and mixed herbs in a dry bowl to get a herb-mix.
  • Cut zucchini into slices.
  • Heat a pan and add 2-3 tbsp olive oil.
  • Add the herb-mix and then the zucchini slices.
  • Cook both sides of the slices till they turn golden brown, and then transfer them onto a plate . (You may need to do this in 2-3 batches.)
  • Place sliced or grated cheese on the zucchini slices.
  • Sprinkle the herb-mix onto the zucchini slices.
  • Drizzle a non-stick pan with olive oil and place the zucchini slices on the pan.
  • Cover the pan with a lid.
  • Cook till the cheese melts. (Remember not to overcook it.)

You can cook the zucchini slices on a flat pan by using just a tsp of oil instead of shallow frying them in a deep pan.
