Zucchini Toast

Zucchini Toast

Avocado toast is all the rage these days.  Well…how about zucchini toast instead!  This recipe showcases the summer squash, garlic, tomatoes, and basil that we got in our CSA shares this week.  It is a really easy recipe that can be made as a side or can be the main dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

1 zucchini or yellow squash (preferably a larger one)
Olive oil
2 avocados
2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Cut zucchini lengthwise about ½ inch thick. Brush with olive oil.
  • Heat grill to about 400-450° Grill zucchini slices about 3 minutes per side.
