It IS more cost-effective to buy more in-season produce. And if you belong to a co-op, like many of my friends that I have talked to, then that’s exactly what you get each month – a lot of fresh, in-season produce! But sometimes the amount of an item that you get can be overwhelming. I’ve heard friends complain recently about the amount of zucchini they’ve been receiving. It’s not that they don’t like zucchini. They’re just running out of ideas for how to use it! Well wonder no more! I just ran across this article at Keeper of the Home that should help you out: 8 Unique Recipes with Zucchini.
I’d also like to recommend pureeing zucchini as baby food (for any mommies out there) and baking zucchini bread! A friend of mine brought me the most delicious blueberry zucchini bread last week. Yum! I don’t know her exact recipe, but the one I linked to from AllRecipes.com has 1000+ reviews and 5 stars! Deliciousness.
Here are some other yummy zucchini recipes I rounded up for ya, courtesy of The Pioneer Woman! Bless her.
- Fried zucchini strings.
- Farfalle with zucchini. You may be seeing this on the menu soon.
- Summer stir fry.
- Vegetable lasagna.
- Grilled vegetable pizza.
- And a plethora (love that word) of others! I think she must looove zucchini.
So what are you doing with all of that zucchini? Feel free to leave a recipe link!
