Grilled Zucchini Boats
We do a lot of barbecuing during the summer months. Not only do we get to enjoy the great outdoors and spend quality time together, it gives us a chance to be creative when it comes to veggies.
One of our favorite things to throw on the grill are Grilled Zucchini Boats. These are absolutely delicious, and the “goodness” is wrapped in a foil packet – vitamins and all!
Cut zucchini lengthwise.
Gently carve out a strip in the middle of each zucchini half using a knife or small potato peeler.
Fill the zucchini. One half with butter and garlic powder, the other half with shredded parmesan cheese.
Close the zucchini halves together for each one and place individually on pieces of foil. Bring each side of the foil up and fold over.
Place the zucchini boats upright on the top rack of the grill (or coolest portion of the grill), and grill for 10-15 minutes, depending on how crisp you like your zucchini. Remove with tongs and serve (we like to pour the juices over our zucchini after plating them).
If you like grilling veggies, make sure you try my Garlic Butter Grilled Corn on the Cob. It is to die for!
