I am hoping that this week there are more people that cook with Zucchini than last week’s Secret Ingredient of Swiss Chard. Friday Foodie Fix was a little light last week. If you find that over the summer you are brave and give it a try or you already cook with it but just didn’t have a recipe ready, go back and add in your recipe. Friday Foodie Fix is available every day of the week at the top navigation bar.
When selecting a zucchini, look for it to be firm and have a shiny skin. The skin is delicate and can be scraped with your finger nail so don’t worry if you see scratches. Zucchini is very easy to prepare and can be used in so many recipes. They can be used for steaming, stir-frying, barbecuing, sauteing, baking and braising. Early in the season you can also find zucchini blossoms at the market which taste great fried.
Here are a few of my recipes with Zucchini. I hope to see rows and rows of recipes from you.
Next week’s Secret Ingredient is …………………….Eggplant!
