Ingredients

  • 4 medium zucchini 
  • 4 medium crookneck squash
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation

  1. Wash squash with mild soap and water; rinse well.
  2. Cut each squash into four pieces; cut both vertically and horizontally.
  3. Place on a cookie sheet or large platter and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Sprinkle with garlic powder and black pepper, to taste (both optional).
  5. Cook on either a George Foreman™  grill or a gas grill. If using the Foreman™ grill, cook for approximately three to five minutes, flipping once. The squash should be tender but not mushy.

  6. Cook approximately 5 to 7 minutes over a medium flame, watching carefully. Flip and cook approximately 2 more minutes on the “round” side.
