Pretty soon zucchinis are gonna be coming out of our ears! Really, more like coming out of the ground and shooting into our ears and mouths, and tummies, until everyone’s just sick of it and is ready for the world to end. BUTTTT……. Don’t do that! Instead, scope these zucchini recipes for some unique and delicious uses for the everbearing fruit.
Zucchini bread, of course! Try this easy zucchini bread recipe for a start.
One of my favorite things to do with these summery squashes is to grate them up and make them into little “cakes”, similar to latkes, but with Feta cheese! Zucchini Pancakes make a great light lunch, snack, or appetizer this way. They are also fast to make.
My easy no-boil vegetarian lasagne recipe as another way to use at least a couple of those zucchini you got laying around.
Some other zucchini recipes sans video: Zucchini Casserole with Walnuts and Mint; Indian Spiced Vegetable Medley will happily accept any and all vegetables you have around, including the zucchini that’s overstayed its welcome.
If you’ve got a copy of my Learn to Cook book, take a look at the Creamy Zucchini Soup recipe, Green Beans Giachini, and Veggie Tacos, too.
Vegan Fried “Catfish”
My friend Tasha — The Sweetest Vegan — has this recipe for a fake fried “catfish” sandwich using sliced zucchini seasoned with Old Bay and mustard, lightly dredged in flour and fried.
Zucchini Masala Curry
This Zucchini Masala from EatEastIndian looks fabulous, too! I could see this as a great accompaniment to a simple grilled chicken or even lamb chops.
You’ve probably heard of zucchini “noodles” by now with all the low-carb, no-carb diets around, but this zucchini noodle with guacamole-coconut sauce seriously looks fantastic.
These baked, crunchy zucchini “chips” from Betty’sKitchen are breaded with a mixture of crumbs and French’s fried onions. They are probably the best things ever.
Zucchini also make perfect canoes to fill with stuff! Try these awesome, cheesy mushroom-stuffed zucchini from Rob at Nicko’sKitchen.
Savory Zucchini Bread
Everyone is familiar with sweet zucchini bread, but this cheese and bacon zucchini bread is a new one to me.
And, just for fun, here’s a timelapse video of zucchini seeds sprouting. 🙂
