Zucchini Chips

Harvest time! Zucchini has started. Our first zucchini dish of the season was actually a request from my 7 year old – he wanted “those round things that are like potato chips, but you make them in the oven.” After trying to figure out what he was talking about, he said he thought they were…

Zucchini Tian with Curried Bread Crumbs

This was going to be my last dish with the zucchini from my garden, so I wanted it to be a good one.  This recipe intrigued me – curry AND rosemary – I wanted to make it, but I wasn’t positive that it was going to actually taste good. Well, it lived up to the hopes…

Khoresh Bademjun va Kadoo (Persian Eggplant & Zucchini Stew)

I had a medium-sized eggplant from a local farmer and  a tiny one from my garden, but not enough for Khoresh Bademjun. What to do? I really wanted Persian food.

Zucchini Chili

The last recipe of the season using my patty pan squash.  Finally, there are no more left in my fridge and none growing in the garden. It is just too bad I just found this one, it’s a surprise winner! It will be a staple next summer. The chili used many items from my garden:…

Hummus and Grilled Zucchini/Pattypan Squash Wrap

I had a friend coming over for lunch and did not have time to go to the store.  I promised something healthy.  Luckily, I had just enough in the house to make an adaptation of Ellie Krieger’s Hummus and Grilled Vegetable Wrap along with some spiced edamame from the garden. The star of this wrap…

Baked Almond Zucchini (Pattypan Squash) Crisps

This was a fun little snack. My pattypan squash are coming in strong, just like zucchini typically do.  There is more than we can possibly eat. So I am looking for new and creative ways to use them.
