Happy Fall Ya'll!
Did you just discover the largest zucchini you have ever seen hiding in your garden?
You thought that you were done with that never ending summer squash. You were ready for the first frost and the leaves to change color. Bring on the winter rest!
OR MAYBE you love zucchini like I do and you just wish there was more fabulous ways to cook it up.
This recipe is for you... who found the prize winning squash and for you who love all things zucchini.
OH AND ALSO FOR YOU... who are gluten and dairy free like us!
It's near the end of summer, which means that the days are getting shorter and fall is coming quicker than quick. It also means that there are piles and piles of zucchini, or what I've decided to refer to as courgettes. (Their fancy French name)
Don't you think it sounds better?
"Hey neighbor! Would you like some of my fancy home grown French courgettes?"
They will at least stop and pause instead of shouting no and throwing them back at you, don't you think?
Many a zucchini grower knows what I'm talking about. That zucchini abundance, and what to do with it all? No worries, from one courgette grower to another, some help is on the way.
Plant a zucchini and feed the world, the saying goes. Well my over exuberant self had to plant the WHOLE package of zucchini seeds because what if those pill bugs liked zucchini seeds and left me with none like my lettuce, like my beans? I didn't stop to consider that they might all grow. They might all turn into viable large, feed the world plants. And they did, but I couldn't dare throw them all out. What a waste! Well, not only are we 'feeding' the world with zucchini now but our whole family, at every meal and every dish. Time for some variety! Here are a few yummy looking zucchini recipes for your zucchini abundance.
