Another way to enjoy zucchini. These Grilled Zucchini Roll-ups are an easy appetizer or snack idea and the filling is totally customizable!
First of all, thanks so much for all the love on my 5th blogiversary yesterday! Be sure to check out my Best of the Bean post if you missed it!
Moving on to today. It’s time for another recipe round-up with some of my fav bloggers! In case you missed our past round-ups, check out my Mexican Black Bean Dip + 5 Healthy Black Bean Recipes and my Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies + 6 Ways To Use Almond Flour.
Today we picked a seasonally appropriate veggie to focus on – Zucchini!
You guys know I’ve been going zoodle crazy over here! I just shared 6 Quick & Easy Zoodles Recipes last week. So I decided to push my own limits and go beyond zoodles and zucchini bread (which would have been my next choice). Instead, I made you these fun little zucchini roll-ups. They make a fun appetizer or snack and can easily be customized using your favorite dips, meats, veggies, etc!
Here’s how I made mine:
Grilled Zucchini Roll-ups
An easy and delicoius recipe that’s perfect for an appetizer or snack and is easy to customize to your liking!
- 2 medium zucchini
- olive oil, salt and pepper
- cooked chicken
- red pepper, minced
- onion, minced
- crumbled feta cheese
- Cut the ends off the zucchini, then thinly slice lengthwise.
- Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Grill for 2-4 minutes per side depending on thickness.
- Let cool or refrigerate until ready to use.
- Spread one side of each zucchini strip with hummus.
- Top with chopped chicken, veggies and cheese and roll.
- Place seam side down on a plate.
There are no quantities needed here. You can make as many or as few as you’d like. It may take a little practice to slice your zucchinis to the thickness you want so you might want to buy an extra. Good thing they’re super cheap 🙂 I prefer them on the thinner side so you have more of a chance to taste what’s inside.
Feel free to change up the contents. Easily make them vegetarian or vegan by leaving out the meat. If you have a favorite dip that you want to use instead of hummus, go for it! (My Spicy Feta Dip would be good!) Just don’t fill them too full or they’ll be hard to roll.
