  • 4 medium zucchinis (sliced on the diagonal ½ inch thick)
  • 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • salt & pepper
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese (freshly grated)

To serve


  • Stir together oil and vinegar in a shallow baking dish. Add zucchini and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Allow zucchini to marinate while you heat the grill over medium-high heat (5-600°F).
  • Carefully spray the grill or brush with olive oil. Arrange the zucchini on the grill.
  • Cook for 2 minutes per side (lid down), then an additional 2-6 minutes (depending on the size of your zucchini and the heat on your grill). Zucchini should be soft but not mushy.
  • Turn the grill to low, then carefully sprinkle tops of zucchini rounds with parmesan. Put the barbecue lid down and cook for one more minute.
  • Carefully remove zucchini from the grill.
  • Serve with extra balsamic vinegar or balsamic reduction.
