[Recipe] Grilled Zucchini Rolls

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).

2 small-medium sized zucchini
Little log of herbed goat cheese
Few leaves of fresh basil
Lemon juice
Olive Oil
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.
