Chef’s Tip: For step 3, if using a charcoal grill, place the zucchini on the outer edges of the grill grate away from the coals to allow the cheese to melt.

  1. Heat grill to medium heat. Trim stem of zucchini and cut in half lengthwise. Using a melon baller or spoon, scrape out centers to create a well. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Grill zucchini covered for 3-4 minutes on each side or until grill marks appear and zucchini begin to soften. Remove from grill. Fill wells of zucchini with quinoa and top with cheese.
  3. Return zucchini to grill. Turn off grill; cover and allow cheese to melt for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Transfer zucchini to a serving platter. Drizzle with salsa and top with green onion.
