Grilled Zucchini Roll-ups With Herbs and Cheese

Ingredients

3 small zucchini (about ½ pound each), cut lengthwise into ¼-inch-thick slices
1 tablespoon olive oil
teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1/16 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
ounces fresh goat cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 ounces bagged baby spinach (2 cups lightly packed)
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. Sprinkle the zucchini slices with salt and pepper. 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. 3. In a small bowl, combine the goat cheese, parsley, and lemon juice, mashing together with a fork. 4. Put 1/2 teaspoon of the cheese mixture about 1/2 inch from the end of a zucchini slice. Top with a few spinach leaves and a small (or half of a large) basil leaf. Roll up and place seam side down on a platter. Repeat with remaining zucchini slices. You can make these up to a day in advance; store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
