Prep time: 10 minutes
3 zucchini, sliced lengthwise into ¼ inch slices
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 ½ ounces reduced-fat soft goat’s cheese
½ teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1/3 cup basil leaves
salt and pepper to taste
- Place zucchini on a preheated grill or grill pan for about 4 minutes on each side, or until tender.
- In a small bowl combine the goat cheese and lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste, mash with a fork.
- Put ½ teaspoon of the cheese mixture about ½ inch from the end of a zucchini slice. Top with a few spinach leaves and 1 small, or half of a large basil leaf.
- Roll up and place seam side down on a platter. Repeat with the rest of the zucchini slices.
*Alternative: you can replace goat cheese filling with grilled turkey breast, asparagus or mushroom caps.
