It’s zucchini time! Every year we get so many of these delicious vegetables. This year they seem extra hard to get rid of, I can’t even give them away. So I had to get busy in the kitchen cooking them up. Here are 6 of my favorite zucchini recipes that I make every year.
Zucchini cobbler, honestly, it tastes like apple cobbler! Warm with ice cream it’s so yummy!
Peel and cut up about 8 cups of zucchini. If they’re large and have big seeds, I remove the seeds. Smaller zucchini have small and softer seed so you don’t need to remove them. Put in a pan with 1 cup sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to your taste and 3T lemon juice. I like lots of cinnamon, about 2 T. Cook until soft.
Make crumbs by combining 4 c flour and 2 c sugar, cut in 1 1/2 c cold butter, stir 1/2 c into the cooked zucchini mixture. Press about half into bottom of a 9 x 13” pan, spread zucchini over and add remaining crumbs on top. Bake @ 375 for 35-40 minutes. This freezes well for the holiday season.
Ricotta stuffed zucchini, rich and delicious! This recipe is a little different because it doesn’t use ground meat.
Cut a medium sized zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out as much as you can but still leave a sturdy shell. Sauté a medium onion in olive oil. Chop up what you scooped out and add it to the sautéed onions. Cook until liquid is gone. Cool, then add in 3/4 c ricotta cheese, 1 cup of corn kernels and 1/4 c parmesan cheese. Salt and pepper. Mound filling in zucchini and sprinkle 1/4 c parmesan on top. Bake 350 for 35 minutes.
This is really good. The corn adds just a little sweetness.
