Grilled Beany Zucchini

Hollowed out zucchini are stuffed with a savory Italian-seasoned bean filling and grilled just until the shells are crisp-tender.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 large zucchini, cut lengthwise into halves
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium tomato, seeded, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo or red beans (1 1/2 cups), rinsed, drained and coarsely mashed
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese – divided use

Cooking Directions:

1 – Hollow out zucchini with sharp knife, leaving 1/4-inch shells; reserve shells. Chop zucchini that was removed.
Sauté chopped zucchini, bell pepper, onion, and garlic in oil in large skillet until crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. Add tomato and basil and sauté until tomato is wilted and mixture is fairly dry, about 5 minutes.
2 – Add beans to side of skillet; coarsely mash about half the beans. Mix beans and 2 tablespoons cheese into zucchini mixture.
3 – Spoon mixture into reserved zucchini shells; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cheese. Grill, covered, over medium-hot coals until zucchini shells are crisp-tender when pierced with a sharp knife, 10 to 15 minutes.

Makes 4 main-dish servings.
