If you take small zucchini and cut them lengthwise, you'll find that it's really easy to grill. Not only is this a easy way to prepare zucchini, but the grill adds an extra layer of flavor. For this recipe, I suggest sprinkling a little grated Parmesan cheese on top before serving.

What You'll Need

  • 3 medium zucchini cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 3 tablespoons/45 mL​ olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL dried oregano
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL black pepper

How to Make It

1. Preheat grill for high heat.

2. Combine olive oil with herbs, garlic, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl.

3. Brush zucchini with olive oil mixture. Place zucchini slices onto grill  and cook until tender, about 2 to 4 minutes per side.

4. Once cooked, place zucchini on platter and top with grated  parmesan or crumbled feta. Serve immediately. 

5. Serve as a main or side dish or use in salads, sandwiches, and wraps.
