Roasted Garlic and Zucchini Dip

  • Author: Kitschen Cat
  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 4



  • 2 large zucchini
  • 6 cloves garlic, whole and smashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil (affiliate)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 2 mint sprigs


  1. Remove the stem from the zucchini and slice in half lengthwise, then cut into 3/4 inch thick slices.
  2. In a large skillet (I prefer my cast iron) over medium high heat, heat olive oil then add zucchini and whole, smashed garlic cloves.
  3. Sprinkle with salt, then cover pan and let cook for 8 minutes.
  4. Remove lid and mix well, mashing zucchini as you go.
  5. Reduce heat to medium and let cook for another 30 minutes, stirring every 5-10 minutes until zucchini and garlic is completely softened and turning to a mushy pulp.
  6. If your mixture is starting to stick to your skillet, add the 2 tablespoons of water.
  7. Remove from heat, spread dip into a serving dish and dollop with yogurt and garnish with mint.
  8. Serve with crackers!
