Discover the most flavorful way to grill your zucchini this summer. Read on!
I know. I know. Grilled zucchini. Yawn. Next. Right?
Well that’s what I thought. I never saw myself as the type of blogger who would post a recipe as simple as grilled zucchini. But that changed one day when I was at the takeout counter of my local grocery store buying supper. (Yes, “even” I buy supper sometimes. What did you think?!)
I was looking for a vegetable to choose, and my eyes stopped at the grilled zucchini. It looked fine. Good even. I was about to order it, but then I stopped and realized that I just couldn’t bring myself to pay someone else to grill my zucchini. Plus, mine is just so good. And I can’t imagine that their zucchini compares.
So I went home and I grilled some zucchini. And as I sat there enjoying it, I knew I would have to post my recipe. It may be simple, but it’s bursting with flavor, and really pretty good for you.
Plus, what says summer like zucchini straight from the grill?
Italian Grilled Zucchini
By Miriam Pascal, OvertimeCook.Com
2 large zucchini
2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon balsamic or red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced (or 3 frozen garlic cubes)
Cut the zucchini into thin slices, about 1/4 of an inch thick. Place in a large mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients. Toss to coat everything evenly.
Place the zucchini on a grill, and grill for about 10-15 minutes over a medium-high flame. Turn over and grill for an additional couple of minutes, about 5-8, until tender all the way through and lightly brown on both sides.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope y’all are enjoying your summer. Totally make this healthy dish so you have plenty of calories left for ice cream. And come back soon for more fun treats! -Miriam
