It’s zucchini season again.
The time of the year where we try and find a way to eat a zucchini every day so we can keep up with the plants and not to let any grow to the size of base ball bats!
It gets easier to accomplish each year as I find more and more great zucchini recipes.
Here are a few of our favourite zucchini recipes.
Five Things to Cook with Zucchini
1. Zucchini and Potato Fritters.
An easy side dish and you can use veggies other than zucchini too.
2. Zucchini Slice
The quickest, easiest zuc recipe ever. My kids can just about make this on their own!
1 big zucchini grated
1 big carrot grated
1 cup of self raising flour
1 cup of grated cheese
Onion, herbs, slat and pepper.
Mix it all together and cook it for 30 minutes and eat!
3. Zucchini bread/cake/muffins.
This recipe makes a LOT of cake, enough for a small loaf as well as heaps of muffins. It’s a lovely afternoon treat and great in lunch boxes.
4. Zucchini Boats
This couldn’t be easier…. cut the zucchini down the middle (cut it half if you have a big one and need smaller portions) and bake in the oven. Once the zucchini is pretty much cooked, sprinkle with cheese and herbs and bake till the cheese is golden and melted.
5. Carrot, Zucchini and Beef Stir Fry.
This is a favorite treat meal of ours, something we have every once in a while. I often freeze zucchini strips so that we can have it at other times of the year too.
Marinate beef strips in garlic, soy sauce and cummin.
Cut Carrots and Zucchinis into thin strips (add some onion or other veggies if you like).
Stir fry the beef strips in a little oil, add onion, carrot and zuchinni and a little of the left over marinade.
Cook well and serve over steamed rice.
