cooking on the barbeque grill, but it can also be done in an oven (20-30 minutes
at 350 degrees). It has almost no fat and is appropriate for the McDougall

NOTES : [AP] Feast on summer vegetables by firing up the grill for Grilled
Bean-Filled Zucchini. There's substance here, in the chickpea or red bean
filling, and there's savory relish in seasonings that include pepper, onion,
garlic and Parmesan cheese. The fat content is still below 7 grams for all the
recipe's full flavor.
The grilled zucchini may be served as a main dish for a light lunch with crusty
bread and fruit, or as a side dish perhaps part of a buffet or cookout.
