Fall Harvest Vegan Grilled Zucchini

grilled zucchini with rice pilafThis fall harvest dish is perfect for using up the tons of zucchini in your garden.

Serve it with pasta, rice pilaf, spicy couscous, Saffron & Mushroom Risotto, petite sandwiches or soup to create a festive delight.

It is an easy to make recipe that can be prepared when pressed for time.

In truth, this recipe is one of my favorites when I am in a mad dash.

I also like to prep it ahead of time and grill it in the park for a picnic get-together. The first time I grilled it at a picnic, everyone dug in and devoured it. The grilled zucchini was gone in no time.

Today, when I have an event with my friends and family  they always ask if I am bringing ‘vegan’ grilled zucchini. I always reply “Absolutely”!

 To all fellow cooks: Make extra!
