Meatless March Meal #9: Grilled Zucchini

For our Sunday dinner this past week, we didn't really do anything too fancy. We just had grilled zucchini & grilled asparagus, fresh garden salad, and rosemary-garlic mashed potatoes {yum!}. It was so healthy and delicious and we both left dinner feeling so good.

Grilled Zucchini & Grilled Asparagus
Ingredients }} prep time: 5 minutes }} grill time: 5-10 minutes
Olive Oil
Kosher salt {you can use regular salt, but kosher salt is much better}
Zucchini, quartered
1. Pour olive oil and salt into ziploc bag with zucchini and asparagus. Shake bag until the asparagus and zucchini and asparagus are covered with salt and oil.
2. Grill the vegetables {asparagus for about 5; zucchini for about 10}. 
 Rosemary-Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients }} total time: 30 minutes (approx)
Potatoes {we used 8 yellow potatoes and it made a lot}
Crushed garlic
1 T rosemary
1 t baking powder
Warmed milk

1. Boil potatoes until soft. Drain. Put into mixer safe bowl {aka, not a pot with stuff that can come off}

2. Pour baking powder, garlic, and 1/4 c warmed milk into bowl. Use hand mixer until mashed and creamy. Add more milk if you so desire {I probably ended up using 1 1/2 cups, but that is a total guess, but it was very good}. Once potatoes are creamed to your liking, add rosemary {I just poured some in, I didn't measure, so this is a guess as well, but you don't need a lot!!}

Garden Salad
Ingredients }} total time: 10 minutes
Romaine lettuce
Any other vegetable you like

1. Cut up all ingredients, put in a bowl, and serve {easiest recipe ever :) }
