Another great little party treat that works anytime of the year, but how fitting are the colours for the holiday season? Funny thing is.. I am pretty sure I originally made these in the summer.
Ah well, just like the last holiday-potluck-appetizer-deliciousness seen here Cranberry Green Onion Cheese Pinwheels, these are ridiculously easy and super cute. So make them. Just do it.
And then tell me about it. Cuz I would love to hear it.
Zucchini, Goat Cheese and Sundried Tomato Roll Ups
Time: 15 mins CPS: $1.50 (for 6 rollups) L of D: Undergraduate
- 2 Large Zucchini (longer the better)
- 8-10 Sundried Tomatoes (half per rollup)
- 1/3 cup of goat cheese
- Approx 20 small Basil Leaves
- Zest of 1 Lemon
Allow goat cheese to come to room temp for easier mixin. Zest lemon and mix in with goat cheese.
Using a vegetable peeler (or a mandolin) cut thin strips of zucchini. Be careful here - don't cut yourself up. You should be able to get 6-8 (at least) strips.
Lay each strip of zucchini flat on a board. Spoon (about 1 tsp) of goat cheese on one end and spread it with a knife (or your fingers) along the strip. On one end, put half a sundried tomato and a piece of basil.
Start to roll up your rollups from the side with the ingredients all the way to the end. If you are having trouble keeping it closed, add a small dollop of goat cheese of the very end to help it stick OR use a tooth pick.
