Help with Zucchini
After a slow start, the garden is starting to yield a bounty of perfect zucchini and smaller delicious summer squash (Papaya Pear and Scallopini). In addition to grilled and stir fried, some of our favorites are :
Baked Zucchini stuffed with sausage, diced walnuts, and feta
Zucchini Bread, and
Can anyone help with other creative uses or tasty salad recipes with zucchini ?
I just made ratatouille last night. Delish!
Leftover zuchinni prompts me to think of minestrone, but not this time of year ;-)
Calabacitas! Don't steam the zucchini, just throw the slices in a dry skillet until about 3/4 done.
I saw a wonderful bread and butter pickle recipe using zucchini in the paper today that I can't wait to try.
Try this...kind of a zucchini pesto
Cut up you zucchini into thin rounds and saute in evoo with garlic, chile, parsley, S&P until soft.
Hit it with a stick blender until somewhat smooth. Toss in a handful of pecorino, stir in and you're good.
This is delicious slathered on bread, fish, chicken, or tossed with pasta as a sauce (just add a little of the boiling water when cooking to thin a bit).
But usually if I have waaay too many zucchinis picked, I can them with mint, chile, oil and rosemary or sun dry them to re-hydrate later in the year when needed for a meal.
