    I dont have a favourite zuchini recipe but when our neighbours give them to us I either make fritters or I add to spaghetti (grated) or sheppards pie (grated) or quiche or something.

    I'm sure that someone will post a delicious zucchini slice recipe, but I love it simple, a zucchini cut in half longways, lie them in a tray insides facing up, cover with salt, pepper and olive oil and bake. YUM. Seriously, my dh didn't like zucchini, and I gave him this and he loved it.

    ETA: Oh yeah, and you can grate it and add it to pretty much anything.

    I buy 5 zucchinis a week

    Stuffed Zucchini's

    8 medium zucchini's
    1/2 cup bread crumbs
    1 clove garlic
    1 egg
    1 tbsp olive oil
    salt & pepper


    scoop out the insides of the zucchini's. Chop the insides of the zucchini finely, mix it together in a medium bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Pop mix into the zucchini shells. Lay on a backing tray. If you are diary friendly you can sprinkle some parmesan cheese. Bake in a moderate oven for 30 minutes.


    Zucchini Bread

    3 cups shredded zuccini (around 3 medium)
    1 cup brown sugar
    2/3 cup oil
    2 tsp vanilla
    4 eggs
    3 cups wholemeal self raising flour (you can use white self raising if you like)
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp cloves
    1/2 cup chopped nuts (Optional)
    2 tbsp ground linseeds (optional)
    1/2 cup mashed sweet potato (optional)

    Mix all ingredients together well. Bake in 2 greased bread pans at 350 degrees for around an hour.
    I often will not put all the oil in, or use rice bran oil because its healthier. I add all the optionals for weeks when my girls have a terrible diet... so I know that this has some goodness in it.

    ETA: I add grated zucchini to heaps of food to bulk it up as well. Anything with minced meat can hide zucchini. Actually yesterday I made homemade pizzas and since the girls had refused vegetables all day I just mixed 1/2 zucchini, 1 handful spinach and 1/4 cup mashed sweet potato with tomato paste and garlic for the pizza sauce. The girls had ham pizza with no cheese and didn't realise that they were getting some goodness in at the same time

    My zuchini slice is very similar to Kristy's but I add corn kernels and sometimes grated carrot too, depends what I have laying around.

    I usually make it once a fortnight, DS and I both love it for lunch.

    I chuck them through my carbonara (yes, you can do a vegan carbonara!) about 2 minutes before the sauce is finished cooking. So I have onion, bacon, mushroom, peas and zucchini in there. It's yums.

    I also make ratatouille, put them in curries, and stir-fries.
    So versatile (they even wear bikinis! - ? Been a long day...)

    Just wondering how it can be vegan if it has bacon in it? Or have I missunderstood?

    I LOVE zucchini too and have been known to make stuffed zucchini boats. Similar to christy's method but I add bacon and tomatos (and sometimes capsicum) to the scooped out insides, fry it all up, thicken a little and then put it back into the shells, cover with cheese and bake untill the cheese is melted and the shells are a bit softer.

    Enjoy

    Grate vegies and combine (squeeze them out if using 'wet' vegies).
    Add mixed egg, bread crumbs, grated cheese, herbs.
    Combine all ingrdients.
    Make into patties and fry in pan (or on BBQ hot plate).

    I make Zucchini slice a bit and use Buckwheat flour instead of S.R. flour. If it's a bit runny I use another egg.
    We got onto Buckwheat when DD1 was taken off wheat years ago and now I don't like it made with S.R. Flour. The Buckwheat gives it a nicer flavour.
    Someone my DH knows has only used it as a sweet dish didn't know you could use it as a savory.

    I made a really nice pasta the other night, and thought of this thread!

    Saute garlic, bacon strips (I use vegie bacon) and then add sliced zucchini on really high heat, so it blisters. Add a chopped tomato, then squeeze a big fat fresh lemon over it all. Turn the heat off, layer rocket over the top, then stir it through pasta. Serve with boatloads of pepper.
