What To Do With Zucchini?

I know I'm always asking this, but I'm tired of eating zucchini already, and I need some ideas on what to do with them. My neighbors hide in their houses when they see me coming with zucchini, because they've had enough too.

I can't see canning them. Wouldn't they end up mushy?

Beer-batter fried zucchini served with tomato sauce?

Also, yesterday I shredded tronboncino neck (so somewhat firmer) and made homemade fresh tronboncino egg pasta. (I incorporated them in the pasta dough).

There's a killer chocolate zucchini cake. Put it in lasagna. Salads, stir fries, soups, quiches, grilled. If you bake it into lasagna, you can freeze the lasagna to have in winter, when you aren't tired of zucchini any more! :)

Tried this recipe a couple of times and it is really good. Tried it with shredded instead of sliced and don't recommend that. Sliced zucchini is better and we added a little sausage to it, which was really good, too.

Believe it or not. My wife uses it in place of apples in pies and crisps. I think you have to bake it for a little while to soften it up.

Hi,

I still can remember my neighbors hideing in their houses when they saw me coming with zucchini.

So, zucchini salad is a perfect side dish or appetizer.

Ingredients:
4 zucchini
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup (vegan) mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
garleigh, chopped finely, to taste
hot pepper to taste, chopped finely or hot paprika
vegetable to garnish

Preparation:

Peel off zucchini skin. Boil for 20 minutes or until zucchini is soft and tender. Then allow them to cool and remove seeds

Place in medium mixing bowl. Add olive oil, mayonnaise, garleigh, hot pepper, salt and pepper and mix well with blender

Place in serving dishes and garnish with tomato wedges, parsley, or green or red bell pepper slices. You may also serve on toast, tomato or cucumber slices (long cucumber slices)

A friend just served me a zucchini pie. It was zucchini slices, onions, 4 eggs, bisquick, baked into a pie. A little like a quiche, but doughier -- the bisquick wasn't just a crust it was all the way through. Maybe la little like a dumpling in pie shape, but light and delicate. Anyway it was lovely. Zucchini is also good in quiche.

With deer season just around the corner, I like lining them up on the fence and using them for target practice. :kidding: :twisted:
