Zucchini Recipes… do we need MORE?

If you like zucchini, it seems like this is the time of year we are inundated.  They come from our own gardens, from the store, or even from neighbors trying to unload their bounty!  There are so many zucchini preparations out there that are indeed tasty, but it’s nice to know some recipes that can use a LOT of zucchini…. Especially if you happen to have one of those “zucchini monsters” we all experience when we miss picking one on time!

These three recipes are great go-to recipes.  Two of them use a LOT of zucchini and facilitate eating more than the usual sauté will allow..  The zucchini bread recipe: I made this yesterday and it is delicious.  The original recipe calls for using green zucchini, but I used a yellow squash instead.  While my 5 year old is a great eater, he is also at the stage of avoiding anything with green flecks in it.  So, swapping out the zucchini for yellow squash worked well and viola!  No green flecks!

We hope you try these dishes.  I will also make adaptation suggestions for a few vegan options as well – so they can fit any diet.

Hope you are all staying safe, healthy and cool.  Enjoy the last few weeks of summer while they last!

And if you are feeling overwhelmed by COVID, home-schooling, work, family (or all of the above!), we can help!  Onsite or offsite, we can design a personalized menu and prepare it to your specifications.  All you need to do is heat and eat, and enjoy the extra time and reduced stress.  Let us know how we can help!
