Easy Grilled Zucchini

For many, the recipe may seem trivial, but I was very surprised in discussions with some friends to notice that it is not clear exactly how to make grilled vegetables, especially zucchini.

If at the beginning I put a little more oil on them, now I don't do that much - I go for the simplest, natural version, without the addition of oil. A 300g serving of such cooked vegetables plus a good piece of meat will ensure a delicious dinner / lunch without any danger of extra kg.

As a bonus, I show you a version of Yogurt and tomato sauce - inspired by Indian cuisine, Raita recipe, but without the addition of spicy oils. Everyone is delighted with him and asks me what I put so special that you can eat anything with it.


2 pieces
so do peppers, eggplant, mushrooms
1 tsp
Herbes de Provence
1 tsp
3 tbsp
I put 2%
1 piece
or 2 cherry tomatoes
Garlic cloves
1 piece
can be replaced with a small piece of simple onion
Fresh parsley
2 pieces

Step by step

Step 1

First of all, it is mandatory to have such a grill pan, mine was taken 1 year ago from Ikea - she is a grandmother but not very good.

Now I plan to take a ceramic one, that's why I recommend you to find one too.

Put it on medium heat towards the sea and heat it very well - so that smoke comes out of it. If you don't heat it well, the vegetables don't cook as well and quickly, and they can stick to the pan.

Step 2

The zucchini / eggplant is cut into thin slices - see in the pictures.

If you make them too thick, the vegetables will be more raw and crispy, if you make them too thin they will dry too hard on the grill.

When they are ready, take them out on a plate and season them with salt and some spices - my favorite is the mixture of Herbs of Provence - if you don't have it, just add salt and possibly a little pepper.
