Zucchini, Zucchini Everywhere!

5 delicious ways to use up your surplus


Have you ever noticed that your friends and neighbors who plant gardens never bring you any of their crop at the beginning of the season? It’s usually around late August, early September when they’ve obviously exhausted their uses for tomatoes or zucchini that you start to find bags of goodies on the doorstep, on the break-room table in the office or hidden in dishes from otherwise-normal cooks.

At first it’s exciting, but then backyard-bonanza fatigue quickly sets it and you’re the one wondering what to do with all those zucchinis that like rabbits seem to multiply overnight. Sure, everyone has a few tried-and-true recipes, but what about a few new recipes to put that lowly vegetable to use. Here are five recipes to do just that.

  • Very tasty recipe, however the document needs some editing. Is it oregano and feta (as in the ingredients list), or thyme and goat's cheese (as in the instructions)? I used the former, and am sure it would taste fine with the latter, but somebody should be checking over these recipes before they are posted.
