Using Zucchini


It is that time of the year when I am getting desperate. And the zucchinis are only just starting. This post will continue to be updated as I get new ideas. 

Recipes welcome in the comments, or by a link to your blog in comments.

I have a bowl of chopped Zucchini marinating at all times in the fridge - they can be eaten any time as a salad, or some scooped out to cook.

Current marinade is lemon juice, olive oil sweet chilli sauce and seeded mustard. Will I add some garlic?

Fry marinated zucchini with with two beaten eggs with a small dash of milk. It was supposed to be an omelette, but fell apart. Nice. Could add bacon.

Gently sautee one chopped chicken breast, add marinated zucchini.When almost cooked, add half a cup of canned mushroom soup, made per directions. Gently simmer and serve. Maybe with rice? Maybe add sliced mushrooms?

In large fry pan, cook sliced bacon, then add sliced mushrooms and marinated zucchini. Gently cook. Current favourite. Garnish with chopped Italian parlsey.

Another version - dice a chicken breast, and throw in with the marinaded zucchini. Gently fry with bacon until chicken almost cooked. Throw in sliced mushrooms. Fry for a few minutes. Is beautiful at this stage, but brilliant if a cup of prepared mushroom soup is thrown in and simmered for a further five minutes. Quick, easy and brilliant.

Anyone else got any suggestions? I haven't started on slices or muffins yet.

Zucchini Cake / Muffins?

One neighbour makes a lovely Zucchini and walnut log - wonder if I can do this one as muffins?

The Sage Garden, Melbourne on facebook has a post currently near the top where a heap of recipes are shared. I like the idea of a zucchini and mushroom pizza

If you google "Zucchini Tuesday" there are heaps of blog posts out there for the past few years.
