Zuchinni-how on earth????????????

Saturday, September 01, 2012

We started with 2 plants in the garden this spring and wow!! We have more zuchinni than I know what to do with. I've been giving it away and I still have so many.............I made a couple of new recipes this morning. Does anyone have a tasty recipe made with zuchinni that they would be willing to share? I just haven't found some that I would make again.

    HAHA, I'm in the same situation, I had 5 plants!! I was giving them away to the homeless people for their weekly cookups! And they are still growing!

2 plants died a natural death, but the other 3 are STILL going. One of my favourite is stuffed zucchini - remove the inside and stuff with mince/onion mix etc. and bake.

If you google search zucchini recipes you'll find a stack. This morning I made baked vegetables for breakfast and added a zucchini in there!

Zucchini's zucchini's everywhere!

    next time you make something you need noodles with use them after they have cooked in boiling water for 3 minutes like noodles, make sure they are cool when you lice them like noodles. you saved on calories, and they are healthier. still hooked on brownies, throw them into a high powered blender, then pour them into your brownies. they take the calories now, and are lighter in calories, and fill you up. Do the same with meat loaf, or use half meat & substitute the other portion with lentil beans & use there. Put them into vegetable soup, you want to binge., then eat that, don't put salt into it cause certain veg's are naturally containing salt. Stuff them with pilaf rice & cheese & use thick tomato sauce with it, or 3 minutes cooking, then cool down, then kind of gut & save interior & mix with rice, then put low fat cheese on and let cook about 45 minutes in the oven on 350. I hope this helps you. if you really don't know how to cook them use the internet to find recipes, but tweek them to make them healthier. Eat raw with only two tables spoons of hummus( that smashed chic peas & olive oil & lemon). Put them raw into your salads. take care eva

    This is a little late; however, I thought I would share my favorite way to prepare & enjoy zucchini.

Cut into half inch coins - fry in just a tiny bit of light olive oil. Leftovers freeze well - I spread them on a cookie sheet & freeze solid before bagging them for later use.

We eat them as a veggie dish or with tomato slices & eggplant (prepared the same way).

God bless!

    I shred it then freeze it. I use it in things like meatloaf and spaghetti sauce.

    I grate zucchini, cook it off in a pan (like I would an onion... usually with the onion!) and add it to tomato based pasta dishes, ground meat (great for tacos) and stir fries. Easy way to get in the veggies!
