A Savory Summer Squash

Zucchini is one of our favorite things to grill.  It deliciously absorbs the smoky grill flavor and it is readily available this time of year. It also tastes great in a variety of recipes, such as Vegan Summer Squash Ceviche, in a Garlic Scape Vegan Frittata, or spiralized for a Vegan Huli Huli Zoodle Bowl

But our favorite quick and easy recipe for this seasonal staple are these Grilled Zucchini Wraps.  They are a spectacular appetizer to serve guests and they are completely plant-based.  That means you can eat several of them and not feel the least bit guilty!


What You Will Need for Grilled Zucchini Wraps

  • Hearts of Palm –  It’s best to get the canned whole palm variety because then you can easily cut the hearts of palm to the size that is best for your zucchini.
  • Zucchini – It will need to be ribboned for these wraps.  It can either be sliced very thin with a knife or use a mandoline for easy uniform slicing.
  • Lemon – Just a squeeze of lemon juice brings out all of the savory flavors in these wraps. Serve with wedges for an easy garnish.
  • Nutritional Yeast – A sprinkle of “nooch” or nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavor to your app.  This is an optional ingredient but we highly recommend it.
  • Spices – Dried Thyme and Salt accompany the nutritional yeast when wrapping for a mild yet savory touch.  Then, Paprika can be added for a garnish and a pop of color, if desired.
  • Toothpicks or Skewers – The zucchini wraps can either be grilled on individual toothpicks for a cute finger food or you can stack multiple wraps on a skewer for efficiency.


Incredibly Quick & Easy

Once the ingredients are gathered, these wraps come together so easily. Simply cut the hearts of palm, wrap zucchini ribbons around it, and grill.  Presto. A tangy and smokey bite that is bursting with flavor!

They require about 10 minutes or so for prep and will take less than 5 minutes to grill. Flip the wraps once while grilling so they cook evenly, and then serve.  The wraps can be enjoyed warm or cold so don’t worry if they can’t be served immediately. All-in-all, a perfect 15-minute summer hors d’oeuvre.
