This only works with a really soft cheese, which is why I like to use goat cheese. The cream cheese like consistency works into the slices really well and the flavor pairs very well with the sweetness of the zucchini.
Grilled Zucchini with Goat Cheese
- 2-4 large zucchini
- 2 tbsp goat cheese per zucchini
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- Olive oil
Cut long slices down each zucchini without going almost all the way through creating what appears like an open book when pulled apart. Leave the rough base on the end and don’t cut all the way through it while slicing either. Push as much cheese as possible in between slices. Place on a sheet of tin foil, drizzle with olive oil and season with parsley, salt and pepper. Wrap each separately and grill over direct heat until done, about 15 minutes.
