Why I Love This Recipe

FEATURING: Zucchini and basil!

Fast, delicious and easy! What is not to love?

Ingredients You'll Need

2 medium zucchini, sliced into 1/4 inch strips
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes, plus more for garnish
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 basil leaves, chopped


Preheat stove-top grill (or BBQ) on medium-high. In a large bowl, toss zucchini with oil, lemon zest, and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper.
Once grill is hot, carefully use tongs to rub an oiled paper towel over grates.
Using tongs, place zucchini on grill. Cook, 3 minutes (cover if using BBQ). Flip and continue cooking on high (covered if on BBQ), 2 to 3 minutes more.
When zucchini is tender, remove from heat and garnish with basil and more red pepper flakes.
