Quarter them, salt, pepper & garlic and toss them on the grill for 3-4 min both sides. Then, you gather up what is still left over and bring them to MEEEE!


I second grilling. I'd recommend zucchini fritters but it appears you already make those. Maybe a cole slaw that includes shredded zucchini?

OMG Zucchini bread is my FAV! You know you can freeze cut-up zucchini without blancing? Did that last summer with good success, especially if you are freezing to bake with later (versus stir-fry).

I'm jealous. I don't have enough land to plant zucchini. :-(

Goofy Girl (again)

I meant "blanching". Not sure what "blancing" is...

Slice some up and toss in omelets. Slice others up and add to salads. Scoop some of the innards out and create a stuffed pepper type concoction and bake 'em. Experiment with wrapping those in foil and throwing them on the grill. My neighbor (86) is growing those and I help her out with them. Between us we almost have enough friends to stay even with those plants.

Oh, and zucchini pickles and zucchini relish, if you really want to get involved. But grinding/shredding it and tossing it into the freezer for winter baking is always good. Breads, cakes, cookies, what's not to love?


we love grilled zucchini but we also love pan roasting it in the oven with mushrooms, onions and yellow squash, we just toss in olive oil, salt and pepper all the veggies, sprinkle on some basil (I have always just used dried)... and roast them in a hot oven.... YUM


Next year, you want to see some real propagating, plant 2 cantaloupe seeds...


Zucchini is fantastic on shish kebab. Cut one into 1" cubes and add mushrooms, pinapple, cherry tomatos, red pepper, your favourite marinated meat, and BBQ sauce. Grill and enjoy over white rice. Nom.


My sis used to say zucchini seeds should be sold one seed to a package...nobody needs 2 zucchini plants!

I did not know it was this easy to grow them. Next year, we'll skip a few peppers and go with zucchini.
