From My Kitchen Table to Yours
It is so good for us, We love to grow it, love to eat it but enough is enough right? How about those blossoms? They are edible too and pretty for garnish…
I know you have made more Zucchini bread, muffins, and cookies than you ever want and you have sautéed it, grilled it, put it in salads, eaten raw spears for snack, deep fried it, stuffed it, and given tons away to neighbors and friends…..and still have more….But have you made zucchini pickles? Coleslaw? or even used it to moisten lean meatloaf?
* Zucchini pickles are every bit as good as cucumber. Follow your favorite recipe substituting zucchini for the cucumbers.
*The crisp texture of raw zucchini makes a great base for slaw.
*Shred zucchini to make juicy low-fat meatloaf. Substitute the beef-base recipe with ground turkey. ( for every pound of meat add 2 cups of shredded zucchini) You will be adding extra veggies to your meal too.
.......So Now you know........"Let's Start cookin!"
Now what about all those Green beans? ( see next From My Table to Yours)
