Grilled Zucchini Roll-Ups with Herbed Goat Cheese
from the kitchen of Multiply Delicious
3 small zucchini (about 1/2 pund each), cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick-slices
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 ounces fresh herb and garlic goat cheese
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
Preheat grill pan over medium heat.
Discard the outermost slices of zucchini and brush the rest with oil on both sides. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Grill until tender, about 4 minutes on each side.
In a small bowl, combine goat cheese and lemon juice, mashing them together with a fork.
Put 1 teaspoon of the cheese mixture about 1/2-inch from the end of zucchini slice. Top with a mixture of basil and spinach leaves. Roll up and place seam side down a spinach leaf on a platter. Repeat with the rest of the zucchini slices. You can make these up to a day before you are ready to serve and store in an airtight container, but I would recommend serving them the same day.
