For many of us, this time of the year is when our gardens are going crazy with producing vegetables. Those of us who grow Zucchini always seem to have more than enough to share with the neighbors.
Here are a few of my favorite ways to enjoy Zucchini:
Add it to spaghetti sauce
Saute it with a variety of veggies in coconut oil
Slice the Zucchini, brush extra virgin olive oil and place on Grill
Baked Zucchini Fries
I am always finding ways to use Zucchini, and this time I was wanting something different.
Zucchini Cake with a Kick
Extra virgin olive oil
Garlic Power (to your liking)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c. Almond Flour
Red Pepper (to your favorite amount of Kick!)
1/3 c. Fresh Parmesan Cheese
1/2 yellow onion chopped
1 Grated Zucchini (approx. 2 cups)
1 Large Grated Carrot
First grate your Zucchini. Once grated place in hand and squeeze water out over sink. Set Zucchini in a bowl and set to the side. In a pan heat EVOO and onion, saute for three min. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs then add the almond flour, red pepper, parmesan, garlic powder, salt and pepper then mix. Once mixed grate the carrot and add carrot, onion and zucchini to the egg mixture. Add EVOO to your pan, drop dough mixture into pan and cook on medium for 2 to 3 minutes each side until golden brown. They will look like a 2 to 3 inch cake!
If you don’t like a kick you do not have to add the Red Pepper!
I hope you enjoy this fun, easy and light recipe. These can be great as a side dish or appetizer for your next party.
