This zucchini slice is something special. This is from Dear Reader Jaqi (who also gave me another recipe below) and uses up half a kilo or 1 pound of zucchini in the most delicious way! This is one of the most popular recipes on the blog.
Dear Reader Jaqi strikes again! She kindly gave me a jar of her mum Gilli's zucchini pickles and they were so good that I asked her for the recipe. They're the perfect balance of sweet and salty!
Ok this looks hard but it mainly requires a bit of patience. Thin ribbons of eggplant, zucchini and carrots are twirled around a cheese pastry base lined with baby spinach pesto and bocconcini. Eating your serves of vegetables never tasted so good!
Vegetables are wonderful in baked goods as they give them a deliciously moist texture and this coconut and zucchini bread is no exception. Best of all it's all done in a bowl with just a whisk!
This is the simplest zucchini recipe of the five and can be adapted to suit any quantity of zucchini. It's an Italian style roasted zucchini where it is slow roasted - it even works for any large, flavourless zucchini!
So tell me Dear Reader, are you a fan of zucchini or courgette? And what is your favourite way to eat it?
