“From "The Food you Crave" by Ellie Krieger. These are delicous and look really pretty when served. They make a great appetizer for a BBQ or something like that. The recipe says you can make these ahead of time but I think they taste better when the zucchini is still a little warm. Some people think the basil flavor is overpowering- so keep that in mind!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Discard outermost zucchini pieces.
  2. Brush zucchini with olive oil on both sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill until tender (about 4 minutes).
  4. In a small bowl, combine goat cheese, parsely, and lemon juice.
  5. Put 1/2 teaspoon of the cheese mixture about 1/2 inch from the end of a zucchini slice.
  6. Top with a few spinach leaves and one small (or half a large) basil leaf.
  7. Roll up and place seam side down on a platter.
  8. You can make these up to a day before you are ready to serve and store them in an airtight container in the refridgerator.
