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.

  3. I made this last night as part of our Olympic kick-off, which is always a Greek meal and it turned out great. I linked to you in my post on this meal. The Penzey’s Greek seasoning is really great for this!

  4. Deborah, yaay for the -9 pounds, and don’t worry, just keep with it and you will get over the plateau.

    Love the idea of Greek food for the olympics!

  5. I need a Greek side dish for tomorrow’s opening ceremonies (we always have Greek food the first night of the Olympics) and this is perfect. FYI,I am at 9 pounds lost and holding (hopefully a short-lived plateau!)

  7. So nice and simple. Thanks for listing out the ingredients for the greek seasoning mix.

  8. Perfect! That reminds me, I need to make a Penzey’s order!

  9. I’ve got six giant zucchini in the fridge right now, so this is perfect. Thank you!

  10. Mum and Dad are off to Greece next week – so jealous – I love greek food. These courgettes look divine – very simple too.

  11. I love grilled zucchini, but have never tried Greek spices on it. Sounds so good and I’m desperate for new ways to use all my squash. Thanks!

  12. Love this zucchinni recipe 🙂

  13. I love Greek seasoning- the one I’ve used also has mint. So simple- this recipe- and I bet so delicious!

  14. Chigiy, Georgette’s Greek Mystery Squash sounds great. Maybe it’s a crossbreed?

    Jaime, me too.

    Yu Ming Lui, sometimes I slip off the bandwagon too! Then I remember that the blog readers are counting on me, and get back to cooking something healthy! So it’s a mutually beneficial thing!

  15. Sounds awesome. Simple dishes are actually really delicious and all you need are the right herbs which are great for you nutrition-wise too.

    Kalyn, I am amazed at how tireless you are at being creative with South Beach recipes. Sometimes I slip off the bandwagon but would come in here to get ideas for dinner. Keep posting these great recipes!

  16. i love grilled zucchini! this looks great

  17. I thought I was growing zucchini in my yard. It was a volunteer from the compost in my worm bin. But it looks fatter and more pale. It is probably still a squash so I could probably make Georgette’s Greek Mystery Squash with it.

  18. I’m happy that people can see past the simplicity and imagine how really great this tastes! Tammy, congratulations on the weight loss and thanks for the nice words about my blog, really appreciate it.

  19. Hello Kalyn,

    I would like to thank you for the wonderful blog you have as it has helped me lose 4 stones, due to the wonderful southbeach recipes on it !

    Kalyn, you are an “amazing person” and have so much motivation, your website provides a wealth of informative recipes and it is all very clear with excellent grammar.

    I am a school teacher and find it hard to cook the right meals due to all the bookmarking I have to do,thanks to your blog, I can now cook a range of dishes that are southbeach which have helped me to look as amazing as you.

    best wishes,
    Tammy.

  20. I’ve cooked it on the grill, but hadn’t thought about using my grill pan. Great idea!

  21. That zucchini sounds simple and looks good!

  22. My sis in law just got me a pack of Greek seasoning from holiday and I was wondering what to do with it! Thanks so much for this recipe. Looks wonderful.
