These zucchini cheese rolls with an Italian look are low carb and quickly prepared for the end of the day. Feta cheese is the heart of the dish and provides the minerals calcium and phosphorus; this combination is particularly beneficial for bone and dental health. The polyunsaturated fatty acids from olive oil have a positive influence on the heart and blood vessels.

The zucchini cheese rolls taste even better if they are grilled before serving, so that the zucchini takes on fine roasting aromas and the cheese is warm on the plate.

Preparation steps

1.

Rinse the summer squash, cut off the ends and cut lengthwise into thin slices. Using a deep steamer, place the squash slices in a thin layer of oil. Season with salt and close the lid. Steam for 3-5 minutes until soft.

2.

Rinse the tomatoes and slice thinly. Cut the feta into four equal pieces. Mix the oil with the lemon juice.

3.

Remove the summer squash and allow to cool briefly. Wrap each piece of feta in 2 slices of squash. Lay the tomato slices on 4 small plates. Place a squash roll on each slice and drizzle with lemon oil.

Season with pepper and serve garnished with basil.
