  • Zucchini ideas?

    I have a huge zucchini... No really, it's 10 pounds.

    I've grilled it and put some African spicy salt on it, but I'm willing to branch out.

    There is a great zucchini humus recipe and also someone just posted a zucchini butter recipe that looks great.

        Zucchini pasta is great! Just need a julienne peeler. Treat it like regular pasta, you can boil it, steam it, or sauté it.

            It's courgette, innit? Or marrow, being that big?

            Yeah, stuff it! Living in the Ice Age: Stuffed Marrow

            ... or cube up and curry. I love marrow* curry.

            * this side of the pond (in't UK) we call large courgette (zucchini) a marrow. Either way, it works perfectly with pork.

              I often make ratatouille, thought I dont use a recipe heres a couple that look similar to what I do;

              Ratatouille Recipe - Allrecipes.com

              Most of the difference between the two is canned vs fresh tomatoes. I dont put eggplant if I dont have it sometimes, just put more zucchini and its still great.

              Also, my mom puts zucchini in stews and soups and I always loved that growing up. Especially in some oxtail soup...yuuum.

                Try this.

                Cook an onion in pan with oil. When it's a few minutes in, add cherry tomatoes and thin slices of zucchini. Salt and pepper to taste, yum!.


                Also, take a few onions and cook them in oil. Add a few chopped up squash and zucchini, salt, pepper (season this as desired, cook a bit), and chicken broth to cover. Boil, then use a hand mixer to reduce squash and zucchini to liquid (plus seeds). Add more broth and boil, mixing to make a nice soup. Some great seasonings are christmas... nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. Also you can go spicy with a pepper, cayenne powder, etc. Really whatever you want.. these squash take a lot of flavor.


                Also you can make a chili style. Put some beef or lamb, half ground half stew size, cook in oil with salt, pepper. Add a bunch of veggies like carrot, celery, green pepper, etc., then add a bunch of cut up zucchini. It should be watery before you add the squash, as the other veggies will give off water in a covered pot. Best part is, add some chili paste. Really great stuff, add whatever you want, because you are the chef and it is your decision what it tastes like.

                  Zucchini chili, that sounds fantastic. I'll be trying that when the weather cools down!
