Grilled zucchini

Description

Grilled zucchini is an easy, low carb, low-calorie addition to your meal. Dress it up with a few simple ingredients.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 large zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (12 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to 350 degrees (or preheat your cast-iron pan).
  2. Wash and dry your zucchini thoroughly.
  3. Slice off the top of the zucchini and then slice in half longways.
  4. With a pastry brush, brush each with zucchini lemon juice.
  5. Then brush with avocado oil on all sides.
  6. Sprinkle on a mixture of oregano and salt on each slice.
  7. Place on the grill and grill for 10-15 minutes per side, or until cooked all the way through.
  8. Remove from grill and enjoy.
  9. Optional – slice into smaller pieces.

Notes

  • This can absolutely be done on the stove in a cast iron skillet. Be sure to oil your pan before cooking. I suggest cooking at a medium temperature so the zucchini doesn’t burn.
  • This method is also nice with green goddess dressing.
  • Eat this as a whole meal, or a side. It’s wonderful either way.
  • You may use olive oil in place of avocado oil. I personally love avocado oil because it’s incredibly neutral in flavor.
  • Cooking times may vary on your grill. Watch the veggies. You know they’re done when you can pierce them easily, but they have a little snap back.
