When I was planning a dinner party and looking for something healthy, delicious and a little different, I found this recipe and decided to try it. I was initially inspired by the recipe in The Food You Crave book by Ellie Krieger.  I didn’t have the exact ingredients on hand and didn’t want to be restricted, so I improvised!


Grilled Zucchini Rolls are very adaptable.  You can use any soft cheese that you like, or even leave it out. Try hummus instead of cheese, use arugula instead of basil, be creative and use whatever you have that sounds good to you!
