Going nuts with zucchini?

It's that time of year; whether you're nuts about zucchini or it's just your zucchini plants going nuts, this is a delicious way to use some up and even stockpile for winter. I just made a double batch and froze 2 loaves.

Zucchini Nut Bread

1 1/2 cups zucchini, grated
1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 each eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, sugar and salt and blend thoroughly.
2. Blend in oil, eggs and vanilla. Do not be concerned if mixture seems too dry.
3. Stir in zucchini, then add nuts and continue stirring until thoroughly mixed.
4. Pour into greased and floured small loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for apx. 1 hour or until tooth pick comes out clean.
5. Cool in pan for 10 minutes then turn out onto rack

Great with cream cheese! Wrap and refrigerate unused portion; should keep 5 days or so if it doesn’t disappear first.
Freezes well. Double wrap with plastic and foil; thaw in refrigerator.

You can even shred and freeze zucchini for later use in this recipe or meatloaf. Use a little more, thaw and drain.

2. Love zucchini, but it's always so prolific!

If you need another recipe to use zucchini, my hubby and I use it in baba ghanouj. It's not strictly traditional, but it gives it a sweeter flavour, and if you grill it (instead of roasting as we did in the video) it gives the baba ghanouj that lovely smokey flavour.

4. An easy, delicious way to use zucchini as a side dish is to cut them

crosswise into disks. Sautee in olive oil with onions, bell pepper until crisp-tender. Season with Italian herbs, salt, pepper. Grate parmesan cheese over top. Serve on its own or on top of pasta.
