Grilled Zucchini Lasagna with Caramelized Onions and Burrito Cheese


I love this recipe, because it uses the grill to make an American kitchen classic, only this particular recipe for zucchini lasagna is anything but traditional. I use Mexican flavors to spice it up and keep the add-ins simple and light. It also involves grilling, something I can’t get enough of in the summer. And who knew you could make lasagna on the grill? The recipe calls for burrito cheese, because I simply love how it melts, but you can use any cheese of your choice, or replace it with a vegan alternative. Anything that melts will work well, and even a thin dust of nutritional yeast can do the trick for a cheesy taste.
