Zucchini and Cream Cheese Sandwich

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Oolala

From "Cooking Up a Storm, the Teen Survival Cookbook" by Sam Stern. This is a clever creation! *Variation: Hummus instead of cream cheese. Both sound good to me.

This makes one mean sandwich! I varied a bit and used garlic olive oil and left out the salt and herbs. This is at its best hot once cold the zucchinis go a little mushy. Tip The best slices are about 1/2 cm thick they go really brown and curring a few ribbons using a peeler makes crispy slices that add to the texture of the sandwich.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill or frying pan to hot.
  2. Slice zucchini lengthwise into thin strips. Brush one side of each strip with a little oil.
  3. Lay the zucchini slices, oil side down, on the hot surface. Cook for 2 minutes on each side until done. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  4. Slice the bread in half lengthwise and spread cream cheese. Layer the zucchini on top. Add torn herbs if using. Top with other slice or leave open. Delicious.
