Versatile Zucchini can be prepared in many different ways. One of the simplest, and the most tasty, is to grill slices like this. Yum.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 8 minutes
Serves: 4 (or 2 if you really like your squash)
2 small zucchini, washed, ends cut off, and sliced lengthwise into pieces into pieces 1/2 inch thick
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Lay the zucchini slices in a baking pan. Mix the garlic, oil, and vinegar, pour over the zucchini, and turn the slices to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Ideally marinate for an hour or more.
Preheat the grill. Grill the slices for 4 minutes per side or until zucchini is tender.
Zucchini is perfect to prepare alongside other grilled foods to make efficient use of that grill.
