What do you do when…

What do you do when you have too many zucchinis sitting in your refrigerator?

You make an unhealthy amount of zucchini bread. On the plus side, Cami is learning to read numbers in a recipe. Now if only I could get her to respond to the 547,290 emails I received while we were on a mini-vacation… I’d be set.

  1. Eat it raw dipped in ranch! Or if you pick them small you can batter and fry THEM whole topped with parmesan cheese. Yummy! I am getting 1# a day off two plants. Not bad for my first garden and only fertilized once with fish meal.

  2. Try this zucchini soup.
    Take a large pot, put in a small amount of olive oil and start to cook a large onion in it while you chunk up enough zucchini to fill the pot, and no you don’t have to peal it if you wash it well. Add the zucchini to the pot when the onion starts to become translucent with a small amount of water so the veggies doesn’t burn while they start to steam, about 1/2 to 1 cup. After the zucchini has cooked down and there is lots of ‘broth,’ add in about 1 cup of minute rice and season to your hearts content; salt, pepper, instant chicken broth, spices of any kind you like. Once the rice is cooked up, just put your pot full of deliciousness through the blender or you can use a stick blender if you prefer, just make sure you catch all the corners. The rice is your thickener. This is a forgiving recipe and doesn’t have to be exact in measurements. It makes a wonderful cream type soup that is vegetarian, dairy free and gluten free I think, not sure if rice is gluten free. I guess you could can it but we usually freeze it. When it defrosts it separates a bit but comes back together as you heat it up.
    Happy Harvesting!

  3. Your breads look so good!!!! I got lucky this year. Our plant didn’t do so well. We had just enough to eat and then out it went. But I’m hoping that next planting goes better.
