Grilled Zucchini Boats

With fresh zucchini and summer squash  featured at local farmers' markets, this is a nice way to serve it.

  • 1/2-1 zucchini per person (use the smaller ones)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil mixed with 1 clove minced garlic and 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • halved grape tomatoes
  • basil - fresh, if you have it, or dried
  • Salt and pepper
  • parmesan and mozzarella cheeses
  1. Cut each zucchini/summer squash in half lengthwise.
  2. Cut out center, carefully scooping out seeded part with a spoon. Be careful to keep bottoms intact.
  3. Brush cut sides of zucchini with oil/garlic mixture.
  4. Line up halved grape tomatoes in each zucchini half.
  5. Sprinkle with chopped basil, and pepper
  6. Mix grated mozzarella and parmesan cheeses together and sprinkle over tomatoes.
  7. Grill over medium heat until zucchini is tender and cheese is melted.


  1. I think I will share this with my daughter who loves different options for zucchini, basil, and cheese. What's not to love.

  2. Yum - eeeeee! This looks wonderful. Your sides look delish too Bev. Hope you are having a wonderful summer!

  3. I was given some courgettes at the weekend, I'm going to try this tonight.
