Zucchini Recipes

August 1st, 2010 at 02:13 pm

Yesterday I wrote about receiving a huge zucchini. I also shared a recipe I was going to try.

That recipe is now history and I think it was pretty good, but kind of bland. I think when I make it again, I'm going to add chopped onions and maybe something else for some zing.

I do have a couple of recipes for zucchini that I'm sharing since there were some comments asking for other zucchini recipes.

Paula Deen’s Zucchini bread

• 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
• 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
• 2 teaspoons baking soda
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 3 cups sugar
• 1 cup vegetable oil
• 4 eggs, beaten
• 1/3 cup water
• 2 cups grated zucchini
• 1 teaspoon lemon juice
• 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, cinnamon and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine oil, eggs, water, zucchini and lemon juice. Mix wet ingredients into dry, add nuts and fold in. Bake in 2 standard loaf pans, sprayed with nonstick spray, for 1 hour, or until a tester comes out clean. Alternately, bake in 5 mini loaf pans for about 45 minutes.

Zucchini and Tomato Casserole

2 to 3 zucchini, chopped
1 medium sized onion, chopped
1 20 oz can crushed tomatoes
Ό lb white cheddar cheese, shredded
Ό lb cheddar shredded
1 T basil, chopped

Preheat oven to 350. Toss the zucchini, onion, and Ό cup of the juice in a shallow casserole dish. Bake 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are cooked. Remove from oven and toss Ύ of the cheese and tomatoes with vegetables. Sprinkle with basil. Top with the remainder of the cheese.
Bake another 15 to 20 minutes.

Zucchini and onions
2 small zucchini sliced thin
1 T olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup of milk
3/4 cup dried bread crumbs
1/2 cup of shredded cheese of your choice (I use whatever I have in the fridge

Saute zucchini and onion in olive oil. Add more oil if needed. When they are transparent, add milk and let it cook through. Pour into a greased casserole dish.
Mix the bread crumbs and cheese together and top the zucchini and onion. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
