Soon your neighbors will be trying to pawn excess zucchini off on whomever will be gullible enough to say yes. My husband loves fried zucchini and would eat it every night. For me, I’m still learning to like it and wanting a few more ways to use this abundant vegetable that will stretch our food budget. It’s part of the squash family which I’m really trying to like.
Fried Zucchini is simple to make, it’s stopping that is the hard part.
- Vegetable Oil (1/8-1/4 inch in frying pan)
- Salt (I use ground sea salt)
- Pepper (again freshly ground is best)
- Slice into 1/8″ slices
- Mix cup of milk and one egg
- Soak slices in milk mixture for 30 minutes (flour sticks better)
- Dip slices in flour and coat well.
- Heat oil on medium high. Check temperature by sprinkling a “dusting” of flour in oil. If it sizzles oil is ready.
- Place coated flour pieces in oil and cook until underside is lightly brown.
- Season with salt and pepper before turning.
- Turn and brown.
- Drain in paper towels
- Eat and enjoy
I’m all about fast and easy so when I’m slicing a lot for the freezer I use a mandolin slicer for my veggies. Comes in handy for pickles, squash, and of course zucchini.
Last year I sliced and froze zucchini to put in soups which really added color and texture to my soups. I’ll probably try the old stand by, zucchini bread and muffins, but those get tiring after a while. I found the following zucchini recipes which sound very interesting and a little different. This may be a new segment, my zucchini adventure, so stay tuned for more recipes.
I do want to try and make zucchini spaghetti out of spirals, from what I’ve heard you just have to quickly dip the veggie noodles in boiling water, then top with pasta sauce. A lot of people eat them raw, but first I need to get a spiral slicer.
BTW, my husband said I he will be frying zucchini every night, so I WON’T have enough to pickle etc…soooo neighbors and friends bring me your large green veggies, and I’ll share my cooking experiments. Below are a few I’m going to try.
