Grilled Zucchini Rolls

I am always looking for interesting vegetarian recipes, for my plant loving friends, and this one is tasty and simple to make.

3-4 zucchini and/or summer squash
1 tablespoon olive oil

4 oz herb flavored goat cheese
1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper, to taste

Toothpicks, for assembly

Cut zucchini lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices.  Discard outermost slices and drizzle with olive oil on both sides.  Season with salt and pepper.  Place on a preheated grill or grill pan for about 4 minutes on each side, or until tender.

In a small bowl combine the goat cheese, garlic powder, and lemon juice, mashing with a fork.  Place about 1/2 teaspoon of the cheese mixture just past the end of a zucchini slice. Roll up, secure with a toothpick, and place seam side down on a platter.  Repeat with the rest of the zucchini slices.

Tips:  Keep chilled until serving.   Alternate zucchini and summer squash for a colorful display.  Enjoy!
