Zucchini “Eat by Color” Style

IMG_2650What do you do with all of the Zucchini that is ripening in the garden?


IMG_2651Get creative and grill zucchini boats!






Zucchini boats are a great low-carb side.  Here they are as a compliment to steak, corn on the cob, and green peppers.  All done on the grill.


The Boats

One large Zucchini

Panko (I had this from previous recipes)

Grated Parmesan Cheese

Italian or Greek Seasoning

Cherry Tomatos

Fresh Sliced Parmesan

Olive Oil


IMG_2653Cut the zucchini in half.  Use a spoon to core out the center.  Mix 1.5 cups of panko, seasoning, cheese.  Brush olive oil on the zucchini.  Put the zucchini on the grill face down for 8 minutes.   I used on vegetable grill basket but this is not necessary.  Remove zucchini from grill and fill with the panko mix.  Top with slice cherry tomatoes.  Slice cheese and put on top.  Place back on the grill until the cheese has melted and the zucchini is tender.
