Sometimes it feels nice to put effort into making your food look fancy. But you know what feels even nicer? When a recipe’s classy factor totally outweighs the work required. My friends, this is that dish. Notably useful for when your parents stop by and you’d like to prove you’re a fully functional adult. Or if you want to
get laid really impress someone with a homecooked meal. Or say, you’re in the middle of a ridiculous X-files marathon on Netflix and your very sanity depends on manufacturing some sense of productivity for the day (slicing, grilling, and rolling totally count as light manual labor, yo).
WHAT YOU NEED
2 small-medium sized zucchini
Little log of herbed goat cheese
Few leaves of fresh basil
Makes ~8 pieces which can feed ~2 faces as a side or 1 hungry face as a meal.
Slice the zuccs thinly lengthwise. You can totally go thinner or thicker than I have pictured, it all depends on your preference. I feel like they’re easier to roll when they’re thinner because they’ll cook faster. Drizzle some olive oil and lemon juice over the slices and sprinkle on a little salt/pepper. Rub it all in and lay em out on the grill.** Grill the zucchini slices for a few minutes on each side. Add a dab of goat cheese and 1-2 leaves of folded basil onto one end of the zucchini slice and then roll it up!

**Come to think of it, using a grill might not be easy for everyone. I’m sure this will all work just as well in an oven. Just be warned, you won’t get the snazzy grill marks. Devastating, I know.
