Zucchini Rollups

 

This recipe is great anytime of year but it’s especially wonderful with fresh zucchini from the garden or farmers’ market. It can be made earlier in the day and served as an appetizer but it’s best when served warm from the grill or at room temperature.

 

Ingredients:

2 zucchini (6-8”)

Boursin or Alouette Cheese, herb and garlic flavored

10 basil leaves

40 baby spinach leaves (approx. 1 cup)

Olive oil

  • Slice each zucchini into 5 slices approx. ¼ inch thick, cutting off the rounded edges on either side to yield flat slices
  • Heat a stove top grill or outdoor grill to medium high. Brush the slices with olive oil on one side and place them on the grill oil side down. Brush the second side with olive oil and cook on each side for several minutes until the slices are pliable but not too soft.
  • Take each slice and on the narrow end put ½ tsp of cheese, 1 basil leaf and about 4 baby spinach leaves. Roll up and place on a serving dish. They will disappear quickly!
