Eenie, Meenie, Minie, Zucchini!

A few weeks ago I was asked to teach a class on Zucchini ... really, I was! So, that last few weeks I have been collecting recipes and ideas from all over and have put them together. I figured I might as well share with anyone out there who might be wondering what to do with all the zucchini their garden might have produced. There are some pretty good recipes and ideas.

Here are a few of my favorite ideas:

First things first ... Freeze it

Either shredded or pureed - both can be handy at a later date.

Then there was the Pizza ... Yes, my kids loved it!

Just shred it on with all the other toppings you like to have.

Third we have a Stuffed Zucchini ... mixed reviews (mine was a YAY!)

I found this recipe HERE!

And finally ... Zucchini Soup!

This was a winner with the cooking class, it was fresh and creamy
and had a simple, but satisfying taste. I found it HERE.
Another winner was the Zucchini Quiche ... I have that recipe in the whole packet I made for the class (only, for the record, I added bacon, as everything is better with bacon ... IMHO). If you are interested in looking at all the recipes I collected (included a TDF Chocolate Cake), I have attached a PDF of it below:

(warning, it isn't pretty, but it is comprehensive)

I'm so sad I missed the class, but so grateful that you posted this. Thanks you! I heard about your soup and I think I may have to try it...who am I kidding, I need to try them all. They look delish!

I bet you're glad that the class is done. I love teaching, but there is always a sigh of relief when it is over no matter how much I enjoyed it. It's a sense of accomplishment. I might have to try the zucchini soup. Although, I'm not going to lie, I don't know how much more zucchini I can make my son eat unless it's in the chocolate cake!

BTW I love the new look on your blog and especially the mask photos! Darling.
