Zucchini Mania!

Our garden is completely overrun with Zucchini right now, the plants are huge and we have tons of squash to eat! I have been trying to get creative with recipes, and was inspired by a friend's blog recipes last week to try out some new things.

Early in the week I made Zucchini Fries, gluten free and breaded with rice flour, cornmeal, italian seasoning, and salt and pepper. They were crispy and delicious! (Sorry, they got eaten too fast to take a picture)
Next I tried Cream of Zucchini Soup, which as super easy to make. I just sauteed onion and zucchini in olive oil, added some chicken broth, and then pureed it in the food processor. After it was pureed I put it back in the pot and slowly added some whipping cream (you could use milk or half and half for lower fat) and then topped with grated romano cheese. It was delicious and only took about 20 minutes to make.


  1. Way to go!! It looks great! I love zucchini and squash! They are so good, even just sautéed!

  2. I'm so glad you tried these recipes! I love zucchini now, I used to hate it, don't know when the switch happened! Have fun with your garden!

  3. Mmm...those recipes sound yummy...I think I might have to try the soup! One way we cook it is to cut each in half across and half lengthwise so you have 4 pieces for each zucchini, then sprinkle on McCormick's Montreal Chicken seasoning, and grill them. They rock!


Please join in the conversation! Leave me a comment and I will love you forever and ever...
