Post  AprilakaCCIL on 8/29/2011, 11:59 am

Okay If you have a squash recipe please share. I promise to try them out. I got 6 plants that is producing squash fast.

I learned how to grow it, now I need to learn a variety of ways in preparing it to eat. Laughing Pretty sure I don't want to eat it the same way every-time. No

we slice our zucchini about 1/2 thick long ways, baste it with a little olive oil, and put garlic salt and pepper on it and grill it on the BBQ. It's soo good! We did it with our eggplant as well. You can almost make a vegetarian sandwich out of it. cheers cheers

Re: Squash--Gimmie some recipes please.

Post  UnderTheBlackWalnut on 8/29/2011, 6:48 pm

Some of what I use my zukes for...

You can roast zucchini in the oven just like you would tomatoes or asparagus or any other veggies - olive oil and whatever seasonings you want...cut 'em up and roast 'em - yum!

But being Mediterranean, I would be remiss if I didn't tell you to search out stuffed zucchini or cousa/kusa recipes - they are awesome. Having a zucchini corer does make coring the zukes easier, but you could probably get away with halving them, if you couldn't get them cored...but you'd want to bake them in the oven rather than cook them on the stovetop and just make sure the liquid is covering them then or they may dry out. Also search out youtube videos because they show how to make stuffed zukes. One video is:

Kusa Mihshi Recipe

One variation I use (and it's not very specific) is:

Kusha Mihshi (stuffed squash)

Filling
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
small handful of uncooked rice (yea, recipe is from my grandma - don't overdo the rice, it will expand)

Sauce
1 small can tomato paste
about 4 of those cans full of water
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt
Grandma's recipe stopped here but I add lemon juice to taste and garlic in some form (minced, powder, whatever) along with herbs - basil - dried mint, parsley, etc.

Core your squash (try to use the smaller ones for this - not the ones that are caveman club sized) and soak them in a bowl of salted water (supposedly this helps them stay firm when you cook them). Drop your stuffing in, tapping the bottom of the squash on your counter to help it drop down in. Don't pack the stuffing in. It should be full but not packed because the rice will expand.

Stir sauce ingredients together in separate bowl. Lay your squash in a 9 x 13 glass baking dish and cover with sauce. Bake at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes.


Another great recipe that is a little heavy on the meat/dairy but is delish is:

Zucchini Casserole (my husband's favorite)

Zucchini - Cut into 1/2" rounds - don't peel (about 6 cups)
1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion chopped
1 tsp garlic salt
1 cup instant rice
1 tsp crushed oregano
2 cups (1 pint) small curd cottage cheese
1 can (10 1/2 oz) cream of mushroom soup
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

Cook zucchini in boiling salted water until barely tender. Drain well. (Note: I skip this step because I like my zucchini with a little more firmness to it. If you skip it, the texture of the zucchini will be more like an asian stir fry where the veggies still have a "crunch".) Saute beef with onion until meat is lightly browned. Add rice and seasonings. Place half of the sliced zucchini in bottom of 7 x 11 shallow casserole. (NOTE: I've been known to use this same recipe but use a 9 x 13 and just use more zucchini because we love zukes!) Cover with beef mixture and spoon cottage cheese over all. Add remaining zucchini and spread soup over all. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly hot.

As a side dish I like zucchini, onions, canned tomatoes and a beef bouillon cube cooked together. Yum. And of course there should be some oregano and or basil and garlic in there too.

Dixie Cafe Baked Squash



Ingredients




    • 2 1/2 lbs yellow squash
    • 1 eggs, beaten
    • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
    • 1 tablespoon chopped onions
    • 1/4 cup butter
    • 1/8 cup sugar
    • salt & pepper



Directions



  1. Trim squash, cut into large chunks & boil to tender.
  2. Drain & mash.
  3. Mix all ingredients, saving half of the crumbs and put into sprayed 8x8 baking dish.
  4. Cover with remaining bread crumbs.
  5. Bake at 350 until lightly browned.


I love this baked squash recipe, but I usually add more onion than is called for in the recipe. (And sometimes I use italian seasoned breadcrumbs or crush Ritz crackers for the top instead of adding more breadcrumbs.) MMMM, Mmmm... I wish I still had squash. Smile

Sliced yellow squash, alone or with zucchini, boil for 3 minutes, drain, let butter melt over it, add fresh grated romano or parmesan cheese.

Re: Squash--Gimmie some recipes please.

Post  shannon1 on 8/30/2011, 12:57 am

here's a vegan stuffed version from http://nikibone.com

Stuffed Zucchini

6 medium zucchini
2 medium or 4 to 6 plum tomatoes
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms
1 fresh red pepper
1 medium to large sweet onion
3 large garlic cloves
olive oil for sauteing
salt and pepper to taste
1 bunch fresh basil
1/2 cup bread crumbs, matzoh meal or farfel

Trim the stem on the zucchinis, but don't cut it all the way off. Carefully cut the zucchinis in half lengthwise, making two boats. Use a paring knife and carefully hollow them out, leaving about 1/4 inch all around sides and bottom. Save the parts you remove. Place the boats in an oiled baking pan or cookie sheet. Chop all the vegetables, but keep them separate. Heat olive oil in large pot or Dutch oven. Add red pepper, a few minutes later onion, a few minutes later garlic. Simmer slowly so they get soft and onions become translucent, but not browned. Add mushrooms, chopped zucchini innards, a few minutes later tomatoes, chopped basil, salt and pepper. Simmer uncovered about 15 minutes. Taste for seasonings. If there is a lot of liquid, strain veggies in a colander, but save the liquid. Mix in some bread crumbs just to help hold it all together. Fill all the zucchini boats, there should be enough filling for them to be slightly mounded. Baste with the saved liquid. Bake at 350F for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes, until boats are tender but still holding their shape. Check them during baking, if they're getting too dry or browned, cover with foil until the last few minutes and baste a couple of times during baking. You can also add vegan cheese into the vegetables before stuffing or grated on top at the last few minutes of baking. You can also add chopped tofu or tofu crumbles into the saute. These are easy to make and are a beautiful presentation for either a side or main dish. Serves 12.


I omit the salt

yummy so good.

Not a specific recipe, but when making lasagne, I replace the center layers of lasagne noodles with zucchini that has been sliced lengthwise, then bake as usual. It helps to lower carbs for diabetics.

Thanks, Furbalsmom, for the great tip. I am a fairly new diabetic - it's been a little over 2 years now. I will surely try your trick of substituting some zucchini ribbons for the noodles! Sounds delicious!

Zucchini (just like apple) Pie
I have not made this but a lady friend did and it was delicious and disappeared fast.

1 large zucchini (to make about 10 cups thinly sliced)
I would prefer to use several smaller ones here.
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup water
1 10-inch deep dish pie crust
1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 dash salt

For crumb topping
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup margarine

Directions:
1- Peel zucchini and slice in half lengthwise.
2- Scrape out soft center and seeds, and slice thin.
3- Combine lemon juice and water.
4- Put sliced zucchini and lemon water into a deep skillet with a tight-fitting lid, and simmer, stirring often until zucchini is limp& opaque.
5- Volume will reduce by about half.
6- Drain but do not rinse.
7- Leave over sink to continue to drain.
8- Fit pie crust to pan.
9- In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg& salt.
10- Add zucchini slices to bowl and toss to mix well.
11- Put zucchini mixture in pie shell.
12- For crumb topping, mix all dry ingredients.
13- Cut in margarine.
14- Put all crumbs on top of pie.
15- Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 45 minutes.

I don’t see many pre made 10” pie crusts so would think a 9” frozen would work ok. But what would a guy know anyhow. I give this friend a lot of Zucchini to freeze for her winter baking and wonder for this recipe if frozen would work too for a winter time pie ?

re the zucchini apple pie. I made one and it was ok but I made a mental note to add one of those powdered apple cider packets if I ever did it again. Just a thought.

Talked to my friend about using frozen zucchini in the pie and she said no it would be too watery and she only uses frozen in baking breads.

Another Zuccini Pie

Post  Furbalsmom on 9/1/2011, 9:48 am

This is another version of Zucchini Apple Pie. The difference is you don't use a pastry crust. The crumble is used to make the bottom crust then baked a bit then the hot zucchini pie filling and all of the liquid is poured over the hot crumble crust, put the remaining crumbles on top, and continue to bake until done.

I made some of the filling and froze it to use for zucchini pies during the winter and it turned out great.
ZUCCHINI APPLE PIE

Peel and seed one huge zucchini, cut flesh into bite sized pieces until you get

8 – 10 C zucchini

2/3 C lemon juice

1 C sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

Place zucchini and lemon juice in large saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and cover. Cook 6 – 8 minutes, stir in sugar and spices, simmer another 5 minutes. This is a very thin mix.

While zucchini is cooking prepare crumble

4 C flour

2 C sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 C cold butter or margarine

Blend above ingredients until crumbly (I buzz this in the food processor)

Set aside 3 C of crumble mixture for topping

Take remaining mixture and pat into a greased 9 X 13 pan, Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.

Remove from oven and while still very hot, pour filling mixture over the baked crust. Sprinkle the remaining 3 C of crumble mixture evenly over the top, return dish to the oven and bake at 375 degrees about 45 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.

The flour in the crust and topping will thicken the juice in the zucchini pie. With all the lemon juice and spices, it tastes just like apple pie.

Zucchini recipe

This is the time of year that we start seeing those baseball bat size zucchini. I haven’t grown zucchini for a couple of years because I’ve had problems with those squash bugs, but now that I’ve read the posts on how to deal with them, I might try again. Then I can use this recipe a friend gave me again. I used to make it every summer and my kids would always ask what it was. I never told them and they always enjoyed the dessert.

Here’s the recipe:
ZUCCHINI UNLIMITED
2 large zucchini, or 2 qt, or over 3 lbs total
2/3 cup lemon juice
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 cup sugar
½ tsp cinnamon

Peel zucchini. Slice it open and remove the seeds. Cut up to make it look as much like apple pie slices as you can. Cook (with the cover on) in lemon juice until slices are tender. Add the other ingredients and simmer a few minutes. Marinate in the frig overnight. Use or freeze at this point.

My friend also included this recipe with it.
Pastry: 4 cups flour, ½ tsp salt, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup butter/margarine
Mix above and take out 1 cup. Add 1 tsp cinnamon to the 1 cup of mixture. Remove another ½ cup of the pastry mixture and mix with zucchini for thickening. Press remainder of the pastry mixture into a greased cake/jelly roll pan. Bake 10 min. at 375. Remove from oven, spread zucchini mixture over crust. Sprinkle the 1 cup reserved pastry/cinnamon mix over the top. Bake 30 min. at 375 or til golden brown. Serve hot with ice cream. (and my friend ended the recipe with this: BON APPETIT!)

The zucchini part over ice cream is to die for

Zucchini For Your Chocolate Sweet Tooth

Post  westie42 on 9/6/2011, 7:35 am

Chocolate & Zucchini Cake

- 240 grams (2 cups) all-purpose flour
- 60 grams (1/2 cup) unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 180 grams (1 scant cup) light brown sugar (I use unrefined cane sugar)
- 115 grams (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature, or 1/2 cup virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules or 2 tablespoons strong cooled coffee -- this is just to deepen the chocolate flavor, you won't taste it in the finished product
- 3 large eggs
- 350 grams (2 cups) unpeeled grated zucchini, from about 1 1/2 medium zucchini
- 160 grams (1 cup) good-quality bittersweet chocolate chips, or chopped chocolate
- Confectioner's sugar (optional)

Serves 12.

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease a 25-cm (10-inch) round springform pan or a 22-cm (8 1/2-inch) square pan.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In the bowl of a mixer (or by hand in a large mixing bowl), beat the sugar and butter until fluffy. Add the vanilla, coffee, and eggs, mixing well between each addition.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the zucchini, chocolate chips, and about a third of the flour mixture, making sure the zucchini strands are well coated and not clumping too much.

Add the rest of the flour mixture into the egg batter. Mix until just combined; the batter will be thick.

Fold the zucchini mixture into the batter, and blend with a spatula without overmixing. Pour into the prepared cake pan, and level the surface.

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer onto a rack to cool for 10 minutes, run a knife around the pan to loosen, and unclasp the sides of the pan. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar or a chocolate glaze if desired.

Zucchini Noodles and Casserole

Post  Mamachibi on 9/6/2011, 8:24 am

When we're doing the low-carb thing, we make "zoodles" which are just zucchini noodles. This is the recipe we use.

The other thing I like to do with zucchini (I don't grow it because I really don't like it) is to bake it with (homemade) mushroom soup, covered with cheese. The mushrooms are a wonderful flavor complement to the zucchini, and I can eat just about anything covered in cheese!

I'm perfecting a tempura zucchini recipe, but am not at all sure I'll have it right before the end of the season.

From the same site, I found zucchini muffins/cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I haven't tried these yet, but they sound wonderful. I usually bake muffins or cupcakes exactly as directed, at least the first time, but hope to be able to reduce the brown sugar next time.

If you skip it, the texture of the zucchini will be more like an asian stir fry where the veggies still have a "crunch".) Saute beef with onion until meat is lightly browned. Add rice and seasonings. Place half of the sliced zucchini in bottom of 7 x 11 shallow casserole. (NOTE: I've been known to use this same recipe but use a 9 x 13 and just use more zucchini because we love zukes!) Cover with beef mixture and spoon cottage cheese over all. Add remaining zucchini and spread soup over all. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly hot.



bounce This sounds so good... I don't know if I can wait for my zucchini to give me some produce before I try it!!! Rolling Eyes
