Grilled zucchini roll-ups with herbs and goat cheese
Serving size 4
- 4 ounces soft goat cheese
- 1 teaspoon fresh chopped basil
- 1 teaspoon fresh chopped lemon thyme
- Freshly cracked pepper
- 2 small zucchini
- Olive oil
- In a small bowl, mix together goat cheese, chopped basil, chopped lemon thyme and a few cracks of fresh pepper. Set aside until ready to use.
- Cut off the tops and bottoms of the zucchini. Using a vegetable peeler (or a knife), thinly slice the zucchini lengthwise.
- Baste the zucchini slices with olive oil, and lightly grill them on an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan. Do no overcook the zucchini, or they will fall apart.
- Gently spread some goat cheese over one side of the grilled zucchini, and roll up.
