Fire Up Your Grill for this Summer Recipe: Grilled Zucchini Rollups

Uncategorized May 24, 2019

Grill season is upon us!

3 small zucchini (about 1/2 pound each), cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 tablespoon avocado oil
Himalayan salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3 cups baby spinach
1/3 cup basil leaves
Homemade or premade roasted red peppers
2-3 large portobellos
1 container of Trader Joe’s vegan pesto (or homemade)

Cue: drool.

Preheat grill or grill pan to medium.

Brush both side of the sliced zucchini with avocado oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until tender (about 4 minutes per side). You can prepare the zucchini a day ahead and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Put pesto, raw spinach, basil, roasted peppers and/or roasted portobellos on zucchini. Roll up and place seam side down on a platter. You can use a toothpick to hold together if they’re stubborn (like mooch). Repeat, and repeat, and repeat. You can make these up to a day in advance; store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Grill when ready!
