A New Spin on the Grill – Grilled Zucchini

Grilled zucchini (served w/ grilled chicken & pineapple salsa)

Summer nights sizzle with hamburgers, hot dogs, and steaks, but there’s no reason to reserve the grill just for meats. Adding fresh vegetables to the grill (and even fruits) creates a delicious flavor for a new take on fresh, summer produce. Try grilled pineapple with pork or grilled bell peppers with chicken. Using the grill lets you be creative with spices and combinations. You can have the flavors of the summer grill and get your servings of vegetables! Throw some produce on the grill at your next gluten-free barbecue but don't blame us (or do) when there aren't any leftovers.

Grilled Zucchini


  • 2 zucchini
  • Olive oil
  • Favorite spices


  • Thinly slice zucchini lengthwise so they are about ½ inch thick. This works best using a mandolin.
  • Lightly spray or brush zucchini with oil and season with salt and pepper. You can try other spices too – I like mine with red pepper flakes!
  • Grill for 4 – 6 minutes.

Grilled zucchini rolledGreen Initiative: Don’t waste any of the zucchini. Save the unused ends to add to a smoothie.
