Grilled Zucchini and Red Pepper Roll-Ups with Goat Cheese
Recipe: Grilled Zucchini and Red Pepper Roll-Ups with Goat Cheese

Ingredients

  • 2 medium-large zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick strips*
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeds and membranes removed, cut into quarters
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 ounces spreadable goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped basil
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  1. On a charcoal or gas grill, clean and oil grill grates, and prepare heat to medium-high. Brush both sides of zucchini and pepper quarters with 1 tablespoon of oil. Lightly season one side with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
  2. Arrange zucchini and pepper on grill. Grill 4 to 8 minutes per side or until lightly grilled and softened; peppers may take additional time to grill.
  3. When grilled vegetables are cool enough to handle, arrange on a large work surface. Slice peppers into 1/4-inch strips. Place 1 teaspoon of goat cheese about 1/2-inch from one end of each zucchini strip. Top each with 1 bell pepper slice running lengthwise down zucchini strip. Roll up strip, and place seam side down on a serving platter. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  4. Drizzle with vinegar and remaining tablespoon of olive oil, sprinkle with basil and serve.

*For easier slicing, first cut the zucchini in half, lengthwise down the center. Then, lay the zucchini on its flat side while slicing into even strips; it will not roll around, and cutting the strips will be easier to manage.

Time: 45 minutes

Number of servings (yield): 10-14 roll-ups
