Ingredients:

  • 3 small zucchini (about 1/2 pound each), cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/16 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
  • 1.5 ounces fresh goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ounces bagged baby spinach (2 cups lightly packed)
  • 1/3 cup basil leaves

Directions:

  1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium.
  2. Discard the outermost slices of zucchini; brush the rest with oil on both sides.
  3. Sprinkle the zucchini slices with salt and pepper.
  4. Grill until tender, about 4 minutes per side. (You can prepare the zucchini a day ahead and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.)
  5. In a small bowl, combine the goat cheese, parsley, and lemon juice, mashing together with a fork.
  6. Put 1/2 teaspoon of the cheese mixture about 1/2 inch from the end of a zucchini slice.
  7. Top with a few spinach leaves and a small (or half of a large) basil leaf.
  8. Roll up and place seam side down on a platter. Repeat with remaining zucchini slices.
