Zucchini and Goat Cheese Rolls
|Zucchini and Goat Cheese Roll|
Makes: ~30 bites
- 4 medium zucchini
- 8-ounce log of plain goat cheese
- 2 green onions, white and green parts, finely chopped
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary, leaves removed and finely chopped
- A few sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed and finely chopped
Make the herb goat cheese: In a small bowl, combine the goat cheese, green onions, rosemary and thyme. Cover and return to refrigerator until ready to use.
Slice the ends off each zucchini. Thinly slice the zucchini into long flat strips using a mandolin slicer. Discard slices that are mostly peel.
Grill or broil the zucchini slices for a few minutes on each side, until slightly browned. This will make the zucchini pliable enough to work with.
Remove cooked zucchini slices to paper towels. Let cool for a few minutes.
Spread a spoonful of the herb goat cheese onto each zucchini slice, leaving a bit of zucchini on one end without cheese.

Roll up each zucchini slice towards the cheese-less end and secure with a toothpick.
You can buy herb goat cheese at many stores but I prefer the flavor when using fresh green onions and herbs.
The next time I make these, I am going to add some bits of roasted red pepper to the goat cheese mixture.
