Grilled Zucchini

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Seven years ago, naive 16 year old me thought it would be a great idea to plant six zucchini plants in my backyard garden.

 

Six zucchini plants.

For anyone whose grown squash, one plant of any squash is plenty for a family.

Just look at how happy I look holding my oversized zucchini next to my overgrown plants. I was stressed. I was harvesting 3-4 zucchini per day and my family and friends couldn’t eat it fast enough. But I was so proud of growing all that zucchini that I tried to eat as much of it as I could.

So I did, and I’ve never looked at zucchini the same since. In all honesty zucchini is pretty tough for me to eat sometimes, but I still love growing it. Fortunately I’ve learned a few different ways to cook zucchini that make it absolutely delicious and enjoyable. (even for someone like me!) I hope you enjoy this delicious grilled zucchini recipe!


Grilled Zucchini
 
 

Ingredients

  • 2 Medium Zucchini
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Crushed Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Parsley, Finely Chopped

Directions:

1. Preheat grill at medium heat. Cut ends off zucchini and then cut zucchini in half to create two shorter pieces to work with.
2. Cut zucchini into 1/4-1/2 inch slices. Use a mandolin if you have one. If you don’t, you may have to cut these slices thicker.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together dijon, EVOO, vinegar, lemon juice, and black pepper.
4. Coat zucchini with mixture. Place zucchini on grill and let cook on one side for about 5 minutes or until sear marks are clear. Flip slices to other side and continue to cook for another 5-10 minutes.
5. Once zucchini are done, remove from heat and top with parsley.
