Grilled-Zucchini Roll-Ups
Ingredients
  • 3 small zucchini (about 1/2 pound each), cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste

  • 1/16 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste

  • 1 1/2 ounces fresh goat cheese

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  • 2 ounces bagged baby spinach (2 cups lightly packed)

  • 1/3 cup basil leaves

Directions
  1. Discard the outermost slices of zucchini; brush the rest with oil on both sides. Sprinkle the zucchini slices with salt and pepper. Grill until tender, about 4 minutes per side. You can prepare the zucchini a day ahead and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the goat cheese, parsley, and lemon juice, mashing together with a fork.

  3. 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 a small (or half of a large) basil leaf. Roll up and place seam side down on a platter. Repeat with remaining zucchini slices. You can make these up to a day in advance; store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
