So if you read the blog often you’ve probably figured out that I have just about every kitchen gadget known to man. However, I never had a mandoline slicer, until now! To break it in I wanted to try a bunch of different Zucchini recipes. The first idea I had was to make thin slices of Zucchini and form them into wraps. The result was awesome!
Here’s the finished result! They came out like little sushi rolls.Start by washing a large Zucchini and slicing off the ends.
Then align it as shown on your mandoline slicer. I ended up throwing the first and last slice away because they weren’t as uniform and had a lot of skin on them. After the slicing you should end up with a series of uniform, 1/8″ Zucchini slices as shown.For this recipe, I really wanted to get the grill lines so I used my cast iron griddle set to high heat.
To prep the Zucchini slices, I used a small container with olive oil and a brush.
I then brushed both sides of the Zucchini with oil and coated them lightly with salt and pepper.
Mmmm, grilling Zucchini!While the Zucchini was cooking, I prepped the filling. I used a combination of goat cheese, dill and mint.
For each slice, I took 1/6th of the mixture and formed a roll in my hands. Basically I rolled a ball until it became long enough to fill most of the slice. I originally tried to just spread the goat cheese but this resulted in broken up Zucchini slices …
After the roll is spread out, I just pushed it down and spread it as shown above.
Then I simply rolled each one up!After rolling I hit it with a toothpick to keep it all together.

Yum! I bet you could make tasty lasagna-esque type wraps out of the zucchini too.
Thanks for the inspiration, these look fantastic!
this is really awesome! do you have any alternate suggestions for cooking the zucchini? I do not own a griddle 🙁
I used a pan with a little olive oil and it turned out excellent. I used an herbed goat cheese and it required no other seasoning. I also made salmon rolls with smoked salmon as an addition to the zucchini rolls!
