Vegetables are an integral part of a well balanced meal. I love taking a vegetable and presenting it in the best way possible. These zucchini spears will disappear as soon as they come out of the oven.
Preheat oven to broil. Broil on high for eight to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and toss roasted zucchini with Sweet and Pungent Sauce (below) until vegetables are well coated. Serve warm.
Sauté onion for five minutes. Add garlic and celery and sauté for an additional three to five minutes. Add apricot jam, ketchup, and brown sugar and mix well. Divide in half.
