Burrata with Zucchini

Who doesn’t love burrata. This Italian round cheese filled with a creamy stracciatella just is amazing. If you’ve have never tried burrata you definitely should. Some people compare it with mozzarella, but it goes way beyond. You can top it at almost every dish. Pizza? Pasta? or even a salad? Totally recommendable.

Today I’m going to give you a recipe which might sound boring but is worth a try. Personally I would recommend it on a sunny day and as a starter. Nonetheless, burrata can fill you up very easily, so go for it when you’re extra hungry. Or just share it with more people.

Prep Time: 5 min | Cooking Time: 1 h | Serves: 2


  • 2 Burrata
  • 1 (Round) Zucchini 
  • 2 Garlic cloves crushed 
  • 2 Twigs of Fresh Rosemary 
  • Chopped parsley 
  • Juice of one lemon 
  • Salt & white pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil 

How to 

Preheat the oven at 200°C. Cut the zucchini into 4 big wedges. Put it into a heat proof container and add salt, olive oil, crushed garlic, lemon juice and fresh rosemary. Mix together before putting it into the oven for 30 minutes. 

Mix the zucchini and add the parsley. Put it back into the oven for 30 minutes at 180°C. 

Serve on a plate with the burrata and sprinkle white pepper and the leftover oil from the container. Enjoy!
