Applied Squash

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Everyone knows that there's such a thing as THEORY, but APPLYING it is a completely different thing....

And so tonight, with my garden swinging into Production Mode and not just Looking Pretty Mode, instead of blabbing on about THEORETICAL squash, I'm ready to dish the truth about some APPLIED squash...

For example, right now, my favorite squash recipe that I actually MAKE, is (No Surprise) Roasted Squash. It's easy, healthy, and its carmelized goodness makes my taste buds yearn for more.

In contrast, my DH's favorite squash is a little calorie bomb called Squasherole, complete with mayonnaise, cheese, and eggs... and even when I make it as low calorie as possible, adapting SP principles, it's not an everyday kind of recipe, though quite delicious.

And now that I think I'm going to picking about a pound or more of squash a day (and possibly way, WAY more than that), I'm considering THEORETICAL APPLIED squash, or rather, recipes that others have tried and recommend but I haven't but I need to...

Like Tagliatelle di Zucchini, where the squash is sliced into noodles and served with a creamy marinara sauce...

And Zucchini Fritters, which come highly recommended by my brother...

(I think I can start harvesting zucchini tomorrow! WooHoo!)

    I LOVE roasted squash. Tried to make it myself and ended up with hot mush. Wish I knew the secret.

    Have you seen the zucchini bruschetta recipe on SparkPeople? Looks great! This recipe calls for the squash to be cut lengthwise, but I've seen other recipes where the squash (zucchini or summer yellow) is cut in round coins and it looks more like the traditional bread bruschetta.
