Favourite Things Friday: Zucchini

Zucchini's terrific!
Like bunnies, prolific!
–Unknown

I love this time of year. All the home-grown produce is ripening up and everything just tastes better when it is fresh from the garden. Although I'm not a huge fan of vegetables, for some strange reason I have adopted zucchini as a summer cooking staple. I just think it adds something delicious to any dish. Lately, we've been enjoying lots of really yummy zucchini dishes and we'll continue enjoying them as long as I can get my hands on zucchini fresh from the garden. Tonight, we had Two-Bean Chicken Chili. It was so good. I dug through the archives and here are links to all my favorite zucchini recipes, so if you like zucchini {or even if you don't; you might if you try these recipes} you can try a new dish or two.

Italian Chicken Pasta Toss
Meatloaf
Minestrone
Two-Bean Chicken Chili

Zucchini and Chicken Bake

Zucchini is great, so versatile. I'm going to give your meatloaf recipe (sans breadcrumbs) a try. Happy FTF!

When BP was a lot younger and didn't like vegies I used to grate zucchini into lots of things like meatloaf, spaghetti sauces. My faves are zucchini fritters and I have a fabulous chocolate and zucchini cake recipe. I'm going to have a look at your recipes now.

I'm a tad disappointed Elizabeth - I thought you were my soul sister in un-vegie-ness!

Im totally kidding. I also eat zucchini occasionally but I'm often stuck for recipes that I might like. I guess I don't have that problem now!

Thanks for sharing your love of zucchini this week.

I had the most wonderful brownies this summer made with zucchini!
