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.
Grilled Zucchini, Yellow Squash and Onions
Chicken Pot Pie Cheesy Sopes Style
Buffalo Cranberry and Wine Sausage
Next week’s Secret Ingredient is …………………….Eggplant!
Can't wait to see what everyone posts! Somehow I missed the chard last week!
Dianne- Thanks for sharing. Feel free to add in any recipes to last week too.
mmmm I have been using zucchini in everything lately, it's one of my favorite summer vegetables!!
Jenn- You've been very creative with zucchini and I love your recipes. Thank you for sharing them. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.
One of my favorites, I luckily, I recently did a post for a zucchini soup I love to make all year round but especially in the summer. This time I added lemon balm from the garden. It was very nice,
Sarah- wow, zucchini soup. I've never tried that before. What a great way to use zucchini. Hope you'll share it with Mr. Linky.
I don't believe I missed this…and no zucchini recipes ready to go. We eat zucchini all of the time in everything. I even eat it raw. 🙂 I love looking through the recipes, though.
Amy- Feel free to drop them back into the post when you have some. I'm sure they will be great.
Chocolate zucchini is a great recipe that I got from Sophie-Safe Cooking. I recently found out my 9 month old son is allergic to milk, eggs, peanuts and wheat and I have been eating "safe" because I am nursing, plus I am trying to figure this allergy thing out. It's a good recipe and and a good recipe book.
Rachel- You're such a great mom!
