Grilled Zucchini and Tomato Packets

Hi Everyone!

Happy 4th of July! I thought today I would share with you one last healthy recipe for your holiday weekend!! This is my Grilled Zucchini and Tomato Packets. This is so perfect for a light side dish to serve with whatever yummy dish you cook on the grill.
Grilled Zucchini and Tomato Packets
The foil packets is filled with fresh tomatoes, zucchini and basil that I picked from the garden. I don’t know what it is, but nothing in the world tastes like a tomato that you pick from the garden. Now if you do not have tomatoes growing in your garden, I highly recommend heading to your local farmers market and picking up a few! I also added a dash of salt and pepper for seasoning and to save on calories I used cooking spray instead of olive oil.
Zucchini and Tomato Foil Packets
I cooked my vegetables in a foil packet that I made with aluminum foil. I just took about a 12″ sheet, sprayed it with cooking spray and added my vegetables. Sprayed the vegetables with cooking spray and sealed up the foil. It is so easy to make the packets. I just brought the edges up and lightly sealed it. I placed it on the grill over medium heat and cooked it for about 10 minutes.

Once the packets were done I just opened them up and ate the vegetables straight out of the packets! You could also make these packets ahead of time, place them in your cooler or refrigerator and pop on the grill at dinner time. You could also add some onions or bell pepper to add additional flavor.

    That looks so good. I’ve been trying to go as fresh as I can, when I can lately. I made your springtime Pasta salad for today and the whole family says it smells really good since we used fresh herbs from our garden and fresh vegetables from our garden. We’ll definitely be throwing this on the grill too along with peaches and steaks!
