Grilled Zucchini Rolls with Herbs and Cheese
- 3 zucchini (about 1/2 pound each), sliced lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Pinch freshly ground black pepper
- 1 1/2 ounces reduced-fat soft goat's cheese
- 1 tablespoon freshly minced parsley leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 cups baby spinach leaves
- 1/3 cup basil leaves
Discard the outermost slices of zucchini and brush the rest of the slices with the oil on both sides. Season with salt and pepper. Place on a preheated grill or grill pan for about 4 minutes on each side, or until tender.
In a small bowl combine the goat cheese, parsley leaves and lemon juice, mashing with a fork.
Put 1/2 teaspoon of the cheese mixture about 1/2-inch from the end of a zucchini slice. Top with a few spinach leaves and 1 small, or half of a large basil leaf. Roll up and place seam side down on a platter. Repeat with the rest of the zucchini slices.
Recipe Analysis Note: Recipe Analysis Note: Ingredients without discrete measurements such as "Salt, to taste" or "Ice cream, optional" are omitted from analysis. This is because amounts can be highly variable and difficult to determine.
