Easy Zucchini Wraps

These Zucchini Wraps are simple, delicious and great for entertaining!

You’ll need:

  • 2 medium sized zucchini
  • 2 cups fresh Basil
  • 1/2 c pistachios
  • 1 Tbs Olive oil
  • 1tsp sea salt (or to taste)
  • pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • sun dried tomatoes – either packed in olive oil or re-hydrated in water

Slice the zucchini into long strips using a mandolin or a vegetable peeler. Place on a drying rack and let sit for 20-30 mins to absorb excess moisture. You could even put them directly on an oven rack on low heat.

In a food processor, combine basil, pistachios, olive oil, salt & pepper until smooth.

Once zucchini strips are soft and of a dryer consistency, place a spoon full of pesto and a sundried tomato on one end of the zucchini strip. Simply roll and secure with a toothpick. Voila! Done!

Simple, healthy, and delicious!

    For the pistachios, do you soak them or anything like that prior to using them? And do you get them unsalted and already “peeled?” (This looks amazing, by the way!)

    • Linda September 8, 2011 at 12:15 pm #

      Hi Meri,

      I didn’t soak these in the interest of time. You can soak them if you like. I would use unsalted. It doesn’t matter whether they are already peeled, it; just come down to what is easiest for you 🙂

    These are so cute! You got me with the picture because at first I thought it was bacon and not sun dried tomatoes…. I might just pretend I didn’t read the ingredients.

    Love ya!

    • Linda September 21, 2011 at 9:40 am #

      Ha! Chelsea, are you gonna be “makin’ bacon”?!

    My office decided to have a office meeting/gluttony fest. With everyone else brings fats and meats and 4 other people (besides my pescatarian self) in our office on diabetic diets and ulcer diets finding something we can all eat and enjoy was becoming a nightmare! These are perfect! I’m not a big sun dried tomatoes fan but so I think I will try a spinach leaf instead but thank you so much for putting this out there.

    • Linda April 3, 2012 at 12:00 pm #

      of course!! I hope you enjoy them!! xo

    I want to make this but I am not a sundried tomato fan… what would you suggest as a alternative. Red peppers? piquant peppers? Thanks so much I really enjoy reading all your recipes and tips. 🙂

    • Linda April 11, 2012 at 12:02 pm #

      Hi Julianna, either of those would work. Even black olives would be lovely!!

    When I was a kid my mom had a huge garden and we aaywls had zucchini coming out our ears! She would make zucchini cakes, cookies, breads and she even put it in stuff like marinara sauces and casseroles… My brother and I hated zucchini (or so we thought). She only told us when we were older that all that mystery green stuff we use to chow down on was zucchini…I now will do the same type of torture to my kids. 🙂 The recipe looks great.Thanks!My blog ( I can never get it to link on blogger)
