Easy Grilled Squash

Grilling is one of my favorite ways to cook, especially since all I do is prepare the food for my husband to throw on the grill!  A few years ago on vacation I was trying to use up leftovers before we returned home.  I threw some zucchini, garlic, onions, fresh herbs, oil, vinegar, salt & pepper into a foil pouch, grilled it about 10 minutes, & boom!  My favorite method of cooking squash was established.  Try it out!  The quantities are super flexible, and you can use other vegetables. INGREDIENTS Yield – 2-3 Servings, Prep time -5 min; Cook time -10  min
5-6 Starburst squash, cut into large bite-sized segments


2 Zucchini
1 Summer squash*
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 Shallot diced (or ¼ onion)
~ 10 Fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips (or 1/2 tsp dried)
1-2 Tbsp Olive oil
1-2 Tbsp Lemon or vinegar (white or red)
To taste Salt & pepper
*Yellow crook-neck/summer squash cooks faster then zucchini.  Cut it into thicker pieces than the zucchini if cooking both together so the yellow squash doesn’t overcook. PREPARATION IMG_2563 1.  Lay out 2 long pieces of foil, one on top of the other like a cross. 2.  Place all of the ingredients on the foil, mix together.  If you prefer, mix in a bowl , then place on the foil.  I don't like to wash extra dishes... 3.  Seal the foil, place on the grill for about 8-10 minutes.  I usually check on it at 8 minutes.  The cook time depends on how hot your grill is & how thick the veggies are cut    SUGGESTIONS
  • Serve as is for a tasty side dish
  • Try with other vegetables & herbs (red bell pepper is so good with this!)
  • Make a large batch & add to salads, omelets, or egg scrambles.
Try it, & let me know what you think! Jessica
