What to do with all the zucchini abundance ? Zucchini Recipes

With the zucchini season in full swing, I thought I share some of my favourite zucchini dishes.

It is a french peasant stew and can be either a wonderful side or eaten with bread or boiled potatoes even a wonderful meal.
I think this is a good recipe for the solar oven because it really is a 'set it and forget it' kinda meal.

1 onion, chopped and
1 garlic clove, chopped heated up in
olive oil

When onion turns glassy-looking, add
1 eggplant, cut in small pieces
1 bell pepper, cut in small pieces
2 zucchini, cut in small pieces
4 tomatoes, halfed

Add salt & pepper and
Toss in 1 bay leave and let simmer


Chopska - Salad
Great with anything barbequed!

Lots of feta cheese, cut in small squares
1 onion
2 zucchini
2 tomatoes
1 bell pepper
1 glove of garlic, chopped (optional)

It's really a cut and toss with balsamic vinegar and generous olive oil ans well as pepper & salt.

Zucchini Bread

3 eggs beat with
2 cups of brown sugar and
1 cup of butter (= two sticks)

3 cups of flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons cinnamon
3 teaspoons vanilla extract

Blend well, then add
2 cups small chopped zucchini and
1 cup chopped walnuts

You can even  throw some chocolate morsels in.

Bake at 325F for 40-60 minutes in a 4x8 pan; for muffins bake it for 20 minutes.

So, what's your favourite zucchini recipe?
