I love to grill zucchini with whatever I have on hand => balsamic grilled vegetables. Usually we do garlic, oil, salt and pepper. I am sure you completely understand why. But I have done it so many times and plus I have this wonderful job “ifoodreal” that forces me to barely ever eat the same food twice. Joking, I re-cook my own recipes.

MY LATEST RECIPES

I decided to play my good old game of “what I have on hand”. As I was deciding on that an abundant pot of basil was staring at me. A Costco size bag of limes has stared at me 30 minutes prior. That is it – lime basil grilled zucchini. With garlic. Because is there really any other way?!

Now, I honestly think that mint or cilantro would work in place of basil. I am more positive of that than of curried zucchini…To keep things simple I cut zucchini into quarters lengthwise. Easy to grill sticks. Alex came home from work just in time to grill. Perfect. Less work for me.
