Grilled Zucchini

Simple, delicious and healthy, grilled zucchini lets you eat your veggies without having to clean another pan.
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time25 mins


  • Zucchini
  • Olive Oil
  • Kosher Salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Fresh Rosemary minced (optional, but yummy)


  • The main secret here is not to slice the zucchini too thin. Thin zucchini cooks through too quickly and turns into mush. We want a little texture left in our veggies, so slice the zucchini into 1/2 inch thick slices. I'm more of a strips guy, as you can see in the photo above, but you can cut them into round slices if you prefer. I guess I am lazy, but I always look for as few items as possible to flip during grilling and the strips does that for me.
  • Brush all sides of the zucchini strips/slices with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle all sides with the Kosher salt, black pepper and minced rosemary.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • Once the grill is ready, place the zucchini on the grill and grill directly, with the lid open for 3 minutes (turning halfway if you want some pretty grill marks).
  • Flip the zucchini over and continue to grill for another 3 minutes on the other side.
  • Remove your grilled zucchini from the grill and place on the correct section of your now properly portioned, USDA approved meal plate!
