Grilled Summer Squash Packets

I was recently sent some Chosen Foods avocado oil to review and I decided to create this fun summer recipe with it. My parent's garden is overflowing with zucchini and summer squash so I combined the two for this tasty recipe of grilled summer squash packets.

Avocado oil has a similar profile to olive oil. It has a clean, mild flavor. It is mostly made of monounsaturated fats. It was a great addition to this recipe.

Nothing like fresh summer produce!

Grilled Summer Squash Packets

2 small-medium summer squash sliced
1 small-medium zucchini sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons avocado oil
1/2 large onion, sliced
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Combine all ingredients on aluminum foil and create a "packet"- fold all sides up.
2. Place packet on hot grill.
3. Let packet of vegetables cook for about 5-8 minutes on each side (check a couple of times that it is not sticking or burning).
4. Vegetables are done once they are soft.

These grilled vegetable packets turned out really well! The addition of the avocado oil added a light flavor and healthy fats. My husband and I ate the entire packet for part of our lunch! The onions caramelized nicely. I will be making these again soon! They would be great with other vegetables as well.
