I just cut them in spears and eat them plain, or dipped in something like hummus, spinach dip or tzazki, (sorry, I cannot seem to remember how to spell that this morning) often.

I'll grill them on the BBQ (sprinkle with bit of olive oil & whatever seasonings I desire at the time).

I'll bake them.

I shred and freeze them to use in baking through the winter, too (defrost first, and use the liquid, too, if you wish)

We love to dehydrate thin slices with a touch of salt or other seasonings and eat them like potato chips but waaay better for you! We do the same thing with squash. Even with just a few plants we always have a bumper crop so I do lots of dehydrating.

I also julienne some and add it to stir-fry or sautee it with some onions and yellow squash with some garlic or whatever spices we're in the mood for.

I grow zucchini in my garden. I like to split them lengthwise, spray the cut side with olive oil, then sprinkle with garlic powder (and sometimes grated Parmesan cheese). Then I put them on the grill (or bake them). We also love small ones sliced-up in salads.

I have a george forman grill and I eat my zucchini mainly grilled. I slice them up into 1/4" slices and grill them until they are more translucent then white. I love them soooo much I eat them almost every day. On a few occassions, I have forgotten I was cooking up some that I had left over after getting my helping, and they were crispy & crunchy just like chips. Best mistake ever. ;) I don't find that zucchini needs anything to flavor it. I don't know if they would have rehydrated if I let them be though...

Hi,
I had a salad the other day at a local restaurant and they diced the zucchini very small and it seemed steamed along with some carrots diced small also and they added it to a big ol' salad with a lemon vinagrette dressing and some feta cheese. It was really yummy!

I also have cut them into sticks and dipped them in some egg white and panko breadcrumbs and baked them with a little olive oil spray to brown them up. They were a little addicting, but fairly safe to snack on or as a side.

Hope you find something that you like and share!

Peace,
fran

I tried the broiled zucchini chips with parmesan. I did not have butter spray so I used a little olive oil. I found them quite tasty. I think with practice, they may become one of my favorite filling snacks.

I love it raw, sliced thin and on a sandwich. Makes a great veggie filling. I usually add a slice of tomato, some cheese (goat cheese is really good) or hummus and sprouts.

Hi Everyone:

I just bought some Zucchini as it was on sale at the supermarket today. I have made baked goods with Zucchini before but I am looking for a new way to eat them other than steamed. I was thinking somewhere along the lines of baked Zucchini chips or fries? Does anyone have some ideas to prepare Zucchini as a snack? Please let me know : 0 )
