In addition to kale, we have a ton of zucchini from a single plant in our garden and squash from the CSA.  Zucchini has been heavily featured in dinners for the past month.  I have a top five list of favorite zucchini dishes too.  And!  I took a couple of pictures.  I actually had to put a reminder in my phone because once I finish making a meal I’m so excited to serve it that I forget to take a picture.

(1) zucchini muffins

Do you know about Smitten Kitchen?  If not, you should look at that website right now.  She has a great recipe for zucchini bread.  I make it into muffins because they’re easier to feed to Ava.



(2) fried zucchini / zucchini patties

These are two different recipes, but they’re so similar I grouped them together.  Fried zucchini is breaded zucchini.  Zucchini patties are a little bit lighter.  We eat them with applesauce and Ava loooves them.


(3) zucchini curry



I modified this recipe to replace chicken with zucchini and I used a lot more curry than they suggested.  I also used peppers from the garden, which is nice because we’re also exploding with peppers as well.  I made jalapeños poppers last week in part because it required 10 jalapeños.

(4) vegetable hash with poached eggs

This recipe is fantastic for getting rid of all the veggies in your fridge.  I use it to clear out all the extra stuff from our CSA.  For example last week I was able to sneak in an eggplant without Jon knowing, which is great because he hates eggplant.

(5) shaved zucchini with pine nuts and parmesan

This is a nice, quick salad and it’s a fantastic summer salad because it’s raw.

Based on all the green tomatoes in our garden right now, I should have another of these posts later in the month about tomatoes.
