When you think of grilling time, you may just think of the man behind the grill right? Well, yes – my hubby can grill a mean steak on the grill but what if I am in the mood for something different..something healthy and vibrant!
Although my main focus is to eat bright, fresh, and healthy – I don’t want to take a long time prepping such a meal. Self Magazine came up with some easy, last-minute “throw in some aluminum foil and crumble together, meals you can grill that are chic too! Ooo la la.

- 2 cans (15.5 oz each) navy beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 lb plum tomatoes, chopped
- 1/2 cup basil, chopped, plus 15 leaves for garnish

Heat grill. Fold four 18-inch-long pieces of foil in half; unfold and coat inside with cooking spray. Combine beans, tomatoes, chopped basil and 5 oz feta in a bowl. Place 1/4 of bean mixture in center of 1 half of each piece of foil. Working 1 packet at a time, place 4 slices polenta in an overlapping circle over beans. Top with 1/4 of zucchini slices, 1/4 of red peppers and 1/4 of remaining 5 oz feta. Fold foil to close and crimp edges to seal packets; place on grill; close lid; cook until packets are fully puffed, 10 minutes. Carefully cut foil to open and garnish with basil leaves. Serve.
