There is a plethora of zucchini at the farm share lately. We grilled tonight so I decided to look for a good grilled zucchini recipe. I made a couple of modifications to a recipe I found online. It was a winner.
Stuffed Grilled Zucchini
- 4 medium zucchini
- 5 t. olive oil, divided
- 1/4 C. finely chopped onion (red will work, but I used vidalia. Yum!)
- 1 t. minced garlic
- 1/2 C. dry bread crumbs
- 1/4 C. + 3 T. shredded parmesan cheese
- 2 T. minced fresh basil (I used cinnamon basil)
- 1/2 t. salt
Cut zucchini in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shells. Brush with 2 teaspoons oil; set aside. Chop pulp. In a large skillet, saute pulp and onion in remaining oil. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add bread crumbs; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from the heat. Stir in the 1/4 C. parmesan cheese, basil and salt. Spoon into zucchini shells. Sprinkle with 3 T. parmesan cheese. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until zucchini is tender.
