I recently made these for a kick off party for an arts based outreach group I work for and they were a hit! It suck a simple, easy recipe but delivers a lot of fresh flavor.
make about 15 roll-ups
- 3 zucchinis
- 1/2 small red bell pepper, sliced into slivers the width of the zucchini
- 1/4 cup fresh spinach, chopped
- 7-8 tsp basil and sun-dried tomato feta cheese
- 2 tbsp dried basil
- 1/2 lime
- salt and pepper
- olive oil
Place zucchini slices on a cast iron grill pan that has been heated over medium heat. Cook until grill marks appear on both sides. Set aside to cool.
Once cooled, you can begin assembling the roll-ups. Lay a zucchini slice across a clean cutting board and hit it with a squirt of lime juice. On one end of the zucchini, place 1/2 tsp of feta cheese, 2-3 slivers of bell pepper and a nice pinch of spinach. From that same end, begin to roll the zucchini around the filling and secure with a toothpick. Repeat this process for all remaining zucchini slices.
Assemble on a serving platter and enjoy!
