With the advent of the tornado, lots of our garden produce got lost.  Some has started to come back, but I fear they will need more grow time than Mother Nature is going to provide.  The one thing we do have coming in great-guns yet is zucchini.

Here is my dilemma – what do I do with it all?

We have shredded, chopped, sliced and diced till my fingers are stuck in the hold position.  One of my fav recipes was a simple fried zucchini and onions.  Awesome, but best when fresh.

stuck in holding (stuck in holding position – ouch!)

Earlier this year I found a unique recipe to turn cubed, peeled zucchini into a rectangle pan type of cake that tastes exactly like apple pie, that alone was amazing.  We have taken several of the larger monsters and prepped the peeling, cubing and sauce then froze it.  We did a tester first to make sure it would work well after being frozen, and it did – woohoo!  Twelve biggies down, dozens more to go.

What I am asking for from you, my awesome readers is, please share your best zucchini recipes!

I don’t care if it’s peeled, sliced, diced, canned, frozen, fried, raw, baked, or whatever;  just as-long-as it will help to get rid of the invasion in our kitchen.

The funny part is we only planted three green plants and three yellow plants, yet we have enough food from them for an army (and why is it when you only plant one it will die on you?).

I have a stellar ratatouille recipe from about 12 years ago.  However fresh tomatoes work best for it.  I may have to travel to the farmers market in Denver to seek out some good garden stuff.

Please, if you have the time, share what you make best with your zucchini.  Leave a website or recipe or email me directly – it all works.  Hurry before we are forced to make a movie of Attack of the Killer Zucchini! EEEK!!

  1. I use zucchini (and my sister does as well, who is a master gardener) to make chocolate zucchini bread and cake. Here is my fabulous Zucchini Chocolate Zucchini bread recipe link https://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/chocolate-zucchini-bread/, the only “upgrade” I made to mine was using 60% dark chocolate chips, really made it so delicious. My sister and I both also make Zucchini fritters for breakfast (served with turkey ham and a poached egg), here is a link to a recipe https://damndelicious.net/2014/04/02/zucchini-fritters/, they are wonderful. Hope this helps you.

  3. Me too – the monsters are taking over the kitchen. The furniture is taking over the other parts because we tore up the living room/office carpets to make way for the new ones. The tornado is still reeking havoc so DONT VISIT NOW – hahahahha
