Many years ago I had a Greek friend who taught me to brush zucchini with olive oil, season with Greek Seasoning, and grill it for a simple zucchini side dish. That recipe had been hanging out in the archives for so many years without anyone making it, so when we decided to give it an update we also gave it a makeover in the WOW department! And happily that simple Greek Zucchini recipe morphed into this completely delicious and amazing Easy Low-Carb Grilled Greek Zucchini. If you like Greek flavors and grilled zucchini, I promise that this might become your new favorite way to cook zucchini.

Of course I already have post about How to Grill Zucchini and even a round-up of  Ten Low-Carb Grilled Zucchini Recipes You’ll Make Over and Over, so it’s obvious I’m a grilled zucchini fan. But for this recipe update we grilled the zucchini with a stove-top grill pan, and then we arranged it on a plate and sprinkled with a generous amount of Feta cheese for a new grilled zucchini favorite that I have already made two more times since we first worked on the recipe.

And the true sign of an absolute keeper recipe at my house is that the morning after we had made the Grilled Greek Zucchini you see in these photos I pulled the leftovers out of the fridge and ate them for breakfast! And the reheated zucchini with the slightly-more-melted Feta cheese might have been even better than it was when we made it! PLEASE make this recipe! I promise, you will not regret it!

Easy Low-Carb Grilled Greek Zucchini

This Easy Low-Carb Grilled Greek Zucchini might become your new favorite way to cook zucchini!

Ingredients:

  • 4 small or 3 medium sized zucchinis
  • 2 T olive oil to brush zucchini (since there are so few ingredients, use the best olive oil you have for this recipe)
  • 2  T Greek Seasoning (more or less to taste, but use a generous amount)
  • 3/4 cup crumbled Feta Cheese (more or less to taste, but this is great with a generous amount of Feta)

Directions:

  1. Wash zucchini, trim ends, and cut each small zucchini into four lengthwise pieces and each larger zucchini into six lengthwise pieces.
  2. If you have larger zucchinis with quite a few seeds, you can trim those seeds off along the edge.
  3. Brush both sides of zucchini with olive oil and sprinkle generously with Greek Seasoning. (affiliate link)
  4. Preheat the Stovetop Grill Pan (affiliate link) over medium high heat so it’s hot when you put the zucchini on and you can get nice grill marks.
  5. Lay zucchini crosswise to the grill grates with flat side down and cook about 3 minutes. (Lift up the edge to see if you have grill marks.)
  6. Turn zucchini so the other flat side is down and cook about 3 minutes more. (Check again for grill marks.)
  7. Then turn zucchini so the green skin side is down and cook 3-4 minutes more, or until it’s done to the desired tenderness when you pierce it with a fork.
  8. Arrange grilled zucchini on a serving platter and sprinkle with Feta Cheese, and enjoy!

Notes:

Original idea for grilling zucchini on a stovetop grill pan was from a Greek friend; improvements to this recipe were tested by Kalyn and Kara.

  1. I tried Greek seasoning for the first time and might I say it is simply delicious and the feta cheese gives the dish even more depth of flavor!

  2. I was away when this post went up last week. Glad I came across it as this would be a nice change from the fried zucchini slices I ususally make, much lighter.
