What to do with ALL of that Zucchini!

Perhaps we have all heard the advice about not planting zucchini unless we have a LOT of friends! Zucchini DOES seem to take over the garden by late August. Here are some ways to use this rather bland – tasting veggie (which happens to be a decent source of vitamin C and potassium).
 

  • Make zucchini noodles (aka “zoodles”).  A simple gadget called a veggie spiralizer makes it easy to create long strands of zucchini, which are delicious when sautéed in olive oil and seasoned with garlic, pepper and a bit of salt.

  • Grate fresh zucchini and add to salads, burgers, spaghetti sauce….even pancakes!

  • Cut into chunks.  Toss with olive oil, a bit of dried thyme, salt and pepper. Roast in a 450 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes (gently mix once or twice while roasting).

  • Zucchini pizza bites: Try this easy (kid – friendly) recipe as a substitute for the heavily processed, pizza bites from the grocery store freezer. http://www.chopchopmag.org/recipe/zucchini-pizza-bites

  • The next time you make coleslaw, simply replace HALF of the cabbage with shredded or grated zucchini. 

  • Lengthwise slices of zucchini may take the place of noodles in your favorite lasagna recipe.
