GARDEN POST #2: Grilled Zucchini!

Posted by Ethne~

Hello Friends!

Just in time for the weekend, here’s another fresh dish from the garden!  Superb!

Thrifty Nana (my mom) has some huge zucchini in her garden and so we’re cooking them like crazy.  You’ve seen them in my tomato sauce and the best chocolate cake in the whole wide world, but another of our faves is grilled zucchini planks.

These guys are huge.  We like to pick
them a little smaller in general.

Shaun is the grill-master in the D household, so here’s the scoop:

He cuts the zucchini into large flat planks, drizzles them with olive oil and salt and pepper.

Grill until the zucchini are tender and have grill marks and done!  Not too complicated and super delicious!  Grab some zucchini from your garden, farmer’s market or grocery store and you’ll love this.

So yummy with our grilled, marinated chicken breasts.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I have been making zucchini fries out of mine this year - a little panko/parmesan crust and baked in the over. Delicious! Who needs the real thing?
