My sisters-in-law brought over two giant zucchinis from their garden.


I love zucchini, and I'm really looking forward to eating these. I'm going to try using them in baking, as I've always heard about doing that but have never tried it. I looked up some recipes this morning and think I'll make some zucchini brownies. They sound interesting and apparently the zucchini makes the brownies really moist. I'm excited to see if that's true.

In the mean time I fried some up for lunch, as fried zucchini is a favourite of mine. A little olive oil, a little s+p, and you have yourself a great side dish. Sometimes we even serve it over rice. Yum!


Have you ever baked with zucchini? If so, what did you make?

  1. those look great. i simply LOVE zucchini just the way you did them (s,p, oil). they are an amazing veggie. i never had them baked, though. i have heard, too, that they make an excellent addition to brownies. i've seen them in other recipes but they escape my memory. let us know how the brownies come out. cheers!!

    1. I didn't try them until my later twenties - just never got around to it, I guess. The first one I had was fried like above, and then I was hooked. They are pretty good! :)

  3. I love them lightly fried and on good homemade bread. Oh man. Toast the bread in the pan and boy oh boy, good eating. Nothing like a good zuke.

  4. I love stuffing them with a rice and meat mixture! And I also love roasting them in the oven! Yummy.

    1. We have some big ones here - I think they would be perfect to stuff. I will have to try that.
