Grilled Zucchini complemented with shallots and a hint of garlic makes a wonderful, inexpensive and healthy side dish accompaniment with any meal.

You’ll Need:
1 shallot, thinly slice
1 minced clove garlic
1 large zucchini

Wash the zucchini and slice it into 1″ slices crossways & place them in a medium bowl, drizzle lightly with olive oil, add minced garlic and season with salt and pepper. Place the seasoned zucchini pieces directly on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes, flip and cook until tender. (Usually about 10-12 minutes in all)

Once they are done transfer them back to the bowl and add the thinly sliced shallot over the top, mix gently. Serve immediately.

Other Seasoning Blends:

Marinate the zucchini slices in 1/2 c. of any italian or vinaigrette dressing with 1 tsp minced garlic and 1 teaspoon of oregano, thyme, rosemary (or a combination of ALL!) for several hours or overnight. This is a great make-ahead marinated side dish.

Tips for Perfect Zucchini Every time:

  • Always cut the Zucchini in equal sized pieces, this way they cook evenly and you don’t end up with some that are mushy and some that are still crunchy.
  • To Create Cross-Grate Marks- simply lift the zucchini up and rotate it 180° and set it back down on the hot grill grate.
