Ok, I can’t really come up with 101 things. But we have now harvested over 32kg of zucchini, so I’ve been getting a bit inventive in the kitchen. Here are a few ideas.
Moussaka – replace aubergine slices with zuke slices. You don’t need to fry them first.
Lasagne – replace pasta sheets with zuke slices. Makes it a lot like a moussaka A good choice for low-carb or gluten-free dieters!
Zuke noodles – I read about this on the Stonesoup blog, and we now eat zuke noodles quite often. Another good one for pasta avoiders.
Grate them – and have them raw in a salad or hidden in a casserole … a la The Cottage Smallholder.
Zucchini chocolate cake – I made this for Linus’s birthday cake and it went down a treat.
Throw them in an omelette or quiche. I am considering a crazy idea involving replacing quiche pastry with overlapped zuke slices. It could be genius, or it could be a kitchen catastrophe … watch this space.
Ask Google – search for “zucchini glut” and you’ll find a million other suggestions.
Or, just fry them with bacon. Because bacon makes things good.
