Zucchini Invasion


It’s been a good year for zucchini. What to do with all the zucchini accumulating in my refrigerator?

For breakfast, we had zucchini, onion, garlic and mozzarella omelettes. Zucchini Apple smoothies after working in the garden. No really, it was good. I’ve been stir-frying zucchini all week with various other garden goodies. Tomorrow, I’ll add it to my favorite buttermilk pancake recipe.

There is always Zucchini Bread. I never made zucchini bread before so I went googling for a good recipe. I found this one. I’ll link to it since it’s not my recipe.

The Best Zucchini Bread Ever!

How could I lose? The only substitution I made was increase the buttermilk to 1 cup because I was out of yogurt. Both are basically cultured sour milk so I don’t think it mattered all that much.

It was so good, it needed its own photo shoot.

Zucchini Bread so good, it needed a photo shoot.

Buzz loved the addition of chocolate chips. I think I’ll try walnuts and Craisins with the next batch.

If anyone is interested in the smoothie recipe, here it is.
Zucchini Apple Smoothie. Put everything in a blender and enjoy.

  • Apple half
  • Zucchini-medium sized, cut in chunks
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Red grapes
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 1 T Honey (optional, it really didn’t need it)

Anyone have a favorite way to use zucchini?
