[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=3]what the heck is kina? google tells me it's a monetary unit from new guinea, so i am quite sure you're not eating that.
annie, my b/f isn't a zucchini fan, but he does like this: shred the zukes into ribbons with a peeler. salt, squeeze drain. then saute with butter and dried thyme til soft. finish with lemon, chopped almonds, black pepper and herbs. both guests and he loves them like that.
i also julienne them with a mandolin and soften them in bone broth for breakfast. decent enough noodle sub.
we're predicted to get another blizzard with up to a foot of snow tonight so i have major garden envy for you![/SIZE][/FONT]
This is a delicious recipe I saved some months ago and used it - delicious!
4-5 cups cooked rice (I boil up 2 cups dry rice and whatever that makes goes in the dish)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, I use mild
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp salt (I always add a bit more)
Mix the cheese into the hot rice, then add the eggs & salt (it’s usually cooled enough by then not to cook the eggs). Spray the bottom of a 9×13 pan and spread the rice mixture on the bottom of the pan.
1/2 of a large overgrown zucchini, shredded. Srsly I don’t measure. 4-6 cups. It always works!
1 can cream of mushroom soup (staple of Mormon casseroles, what can I say?)
1/2 to 1 tsp salt
4 eggs, beaten
Mix all ingredients and spread over the rice mixture. Cook uncovered for 1 hour at 350°F. It may start to brown on top, if so cover with tin foil at 45 min. mark. When done the center is quite ‘set’. Remove from oven and sprinkle with another cup of shredded cheese.
I don't remember from where I got it tho
I just made the Zucchini Egg Bake from the Primal Blueprint Cookbook (first recipe I tried).
It's similar to Noodletoys frittatta, but includes sausage and parm cheese.
It called for 2 pounds of shredded zucchini. I had young (6-7 inches) zucchini, but surely you try with older ones.
It was delicious, even reheated the next day.

LOL you beat me to it Annie. I so would love to put my foot on a colony of kina. usually i have to dive in the sea to get them. i am one of the few people i know who like them and apparently OMG our daily limit is 50. I can only usually manage 2 or 3 on my own.
i was sure i saw a courgette cake recipe the other day when the kids were looking up GF cookie recipes so i did a search of the same web site. 326 courgette recipes to inspire you!
