Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash with Yogurt Cumin Sauce Recipe

Adapted from Gourmande in the Kitchen Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes

Serves about 6

The contrast between the warm squash and cool yogurt sauce, the subtle nuttiness of the lightly spiced sauce works beautifully with zucchini and summer squash.

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon tahini
  • 2 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon roasted ground cumin
  • 1 garlic clove finely minced
  • About 6 (each) zucchini and summer squash, sliced lengthwise
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil (divided)
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley

Mix together the first 5 ingredients along with a pinch of salt and 2 Tablespoons of the olive oil. Set aside while making the vegetables.

Heat broiler. Arrange vegetables in a single layer, cut side up on two baking sheets. Brush on both sides with 2 tablespoons of oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil until deep golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

OR

Arrange coated vegetables on grill rack (over medium-high heat); grill vegetables 8 minutes or until just tender, turning once. Season with salt and pepper to taste

Place vegetables on a platter. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve with sauce.
