Description

A simple recipe for Grilled Zucchini with zaatar, garlic and lemon. Serve it with tzatziki for extra richness. Full of flavor, delicious and healthy!


Ingredients

  • 2 lbs zucchini (or summer squash)
  • 12 Tablespoons Olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Zaatar spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced

Garnish w/ flat-leaf parsley or cilantro, a squeeze of lemon, a drizzle of olive oil, baby tomatoes, aleppo Chili pepper.

Serve with tzatziki sauce or yogurt for extra richness (optional)


Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Slice the zucchini on the diagonal, into 1/3- inch thick slices and place into a large bowl. Drizzle w/ olive oil, sprinkle w/ salt and zaatar spice, and add the finely minced garlic. Using tongs or your hands, toss to combine until each piece is well coated.

  4. When cooked to desired tenderness, place zucchini on a platter and cover with foil for 5-10 minutes, so they become even more tender.
