Zucchini Recipe: Sammy's Easy Grilled Potato Packets

4:40 PM

It's happening, people! Zucchini is starting to arrive daily, giving my family a yummy, versatile veggie to incorporate into every single meal (and even a few desserts.) We have already enjoyed zucchini fritters, Italian Scalloped Zucchini, and a nice stew with it added in, but my all-time favorite way to eat it was this quick foil packet recipe from my husband.

To make it, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 2-3 potatoes, (peeled and cubed)
  • 1 medium zucchini (ends cut off and cubed)
  • 1 medium white or red onion (coarsely diced)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic (roughly diced)
  • Coconut oil to drizzle (I love the Carrington Farms Garlic variety)
  • Kosher Salt to taste
  • Coarse Black Pepper to Taste
Mix all ingredients on a large bowl and spoon onto the middle of a 12 inch wide by 12 inch long sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil. (You do not want to go cheap on the foil. It will affect taste and cooking time to do so.)

Grill on your outdoor grill for 15 minutes, turning the packet over halfway through. Check it a bit every now and again to make sure it doesn't burn. We cooked ours at about 350 heat. (You can also do this in an oven!)

This is a great side dish, as the bottom veggies get very soft and fluffy, while the top veggies stay a little firm. I like to mix the "fluffy" veggies together before serving, and my kids never can tell the potatoes from the green stuff. They eat it all!

Experiment with different flavors. We like cayenne, paprika, green or red peppers, spinach, or even finishing of with a little grated cheese or fresh tomatoes upon serving!  Yum!
