‘Tis that time of year again.. ZUCCHINI Time!

Whether you’re blessed with a home garden or just generous friends & neighbors, now is the time when our collective thoughts turn to that most prodigious of plant producers: ZUCCHINI!  I love zukes.  Yummy, versatile and under 20 mg sodium for even the grandest of specimens, zucchini is our friend.  But when you’re inundated with the stuff, what do you do with it?  Here are some low-sodium answers!

  1. Brownies?! I thought black bean brownies were insane, but at least beans are the right COLOR. I’d love to try, those, though, if I could use almond meal instead of flour to cut the carbs; I’m all about hiding my vegetables.

    You know, I’ve yet to try Black Bean Brownies, though I’ve read Happy Herbivore’s recipe is pretty to-die-for. These were good, and – as you can imagine w/ all that zucchini, very, very moist. Certainly not the brownies my kids beg me for, but then again not many kids pick veggies over choc chips. (and not many adults, truth be told.. though I do love my veggies!)

    PS: I have a stack of other zucchini recipes I’m testing out over the next few days, including 2 for zucchini cookies.. my curiosity is definitely piqued. Keep you posted.

    This is just perfect for those people that have an over run of zucchinis in their garden! All of these look pretty tasty and I have bookmarked some to try. Thanks for sharing-yum!

    Wow. That was all from zucchini? so creative! What is in that soup? looks good. do you have the recipe? and do you have google connect so that I could follow your blog? the RSS gave me some errors. dont know why.

    ohhh, I love zucchini bread! Cooks Illustrated did a really interesting article on zucchini bread this month, though they insisted that you make it with butter which sort of negates the entire purpose of making bread out of vegetables.

    I also love a double-chocolate zucchini brownie recipe I tried out last week from A Dash of Sass. It tastes healthy with a kick of chocolate at the end.

    I adore zucchini… but after last years utter failure I didn’t plant any this year. My local markets are swimming with them though and I’m enjoyed them all! Love your round up… nicely done!

    Prodigious indeed. We ate so much last year, we overdosed. But ready for some now….the flowers are the best!

    Thanks for the lovely comments — hope you all find a new favorite. And thanks so much for sharing that recipe, Carrie. Double chocolate zuke brownies sounds awesome!

    Gria, I double-checked my RSS feed link and you’re right – it was wrong. All fixed now! Thanks for letting me know. 🙂
