Zucchini, how I love thee.

Tis the season for Zucchini! And I love it.


I know everyone is always trying to pawn off their zucchini but I hoard mine. I love putting it in all sorts of things. My latest favorite have been fried zucchini bites.

Fried zucchini is a delicious, easy and unique way to use up your plentiful garden harvest. Try it today!

Just cut it 1/4 inch thick, dredge in flour, coat in egg, then toss in some breadcrumbs with fresh herbs and parmesan. Fry in pretty hot oil until golden. I like my oil a little hotter so they fry more quickly, I don’t like mushy Zucchini! They can also be reheated in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes depending on their size.

Some of my other zucchini favorites are:

  • Brownies
  • Cake
  • Bread
  • Pasta sauce
  • Breakfast burritos
  • Stir fry
  • Fried Rice

I also just shred everything I can’t use right away and put it in 2 cup portions in the freezer. That way, I can use it all throughout the year. If it is going into a baked good or sauce, I always use shredded. It helps hide it :). Zucchini is my favorite veggie to feed Andy because he never notices it’s there. And it makes brownies healthy….right?!

The only trick with using frozen zucchini is to let it thaw out and drain the water. That way you won’t have water-logged food. It thaws pretty quickly if you leave it under warm water for a few minutes.

Unfortunately, my zucchini hasn’t been growing to well! So if anyone needs to get rid of some, I’m your girl!

    September 2, 2015 at 1:54 PM I'm a lover of zucchini, too! And mine didn't grow at all this year (well, the plants sprouted, but got eaten immediately by ants or something and I never replanted) so no zucchini for me. Sad day. So, if you find a donor, keep me posted! ;)
