Zucchini, Zucchini so much Zucchini!

Ever wonder how you can use all of the zucchini that you plant? 

How about trying a few of these ideas out?

  • Zucchini Stuffed boats 
    • Cut the zucchini in half and scrape out holes along the “boat” and stuff with goodness! Some people stuff them with meats, cheeses, more veggies, quinoa, rice… almost anything!
  • Zucchini Pasta
    • A wheat noodle alternative for those interested in avoiding wheat. The zucchini can be spiralized, shaved or cut thin. You can eat the noodles raw, bake them crispy or steam them. It is very yummy with a Mediterranean pasta sauce and toppings! Another option is the slice the zucchini into thicker and wider slices and use it as the pasta noodle layer in lasagna!
  • Zucchini Fries
    • No need to have deep fried potatoes when you can coat zucchini sticks with a crispy mixture and bake them! Maybe dip them with a fresh tzatziki from your cucumbers!
  • Stuffed Zucchini Flowers
    • Why wait for the zucchini’s to be ready? You can stuff the flowers with cheeses and herbs. Typically they are then batter fried. In Italy this is a special dish called fiorri di zucca! Very elegant and special dish, a great dish to impress friends at a potluck!
  • Zucchini Relish 
    • This alternative will help to store your zucchini for longer periods of time. Who doesn’t love a spicy relish at a BBQ!
  • Bread, Muffins, Cake 
    • Zucchini is super easy to incorporate into baking! Whether you make a savory Indian inspired zucchini muffin, whole grain loaf, zucchini banana loaf or a chocolate zucchini cake you will be pleased with the moistness and texture zucchini adds to your baking!
  • Add it to stews, soups and sauces
    • Zucchini has a high water content which allows it to break down into dishes easily. May as well add some extra nutrients to your dishes!
  • Eat it raw
    • Among many great ways to prepare zucchini, the flavour is great alone! Add it to salads, dip it, add it to sandwiches. The options are endless!
  • Freeze it
    • Ok, you have a lot of zucchini and no time to make these awesome dishes, so freeze it! You now have zucchini for the whole year! 

 

ENJOY!!!

P.s. Did you know that on August 8th it was National Zucchini Day. On this day you sneak a zucchini onto your neighbors porches!
