    We have the same issue right now! We planted a yellow squash and two zucchini plants this year and I’m running out of ways to cook it. I really like this recipe, it’s versatile because you can substitute the herbs (I use cilantro) and you can leave the nuts out and they are just as good. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Turkish-Zucchini-Pancakes-1208.
    I usually make a lot of them because leftovers are good too. I can just eat them cold for lunch the next day.

    My husband likes it when I cook zucchini down to mush. It sounds gross, but it’s kind of like a mashed potato substitute. I cube it, cook it way down until it’s falling apart, drain remaining liquid, then add seasoning and some parmesan cheese. It tastes good, but you have to be okay with the texture.

      I learned the first year we had a garden that one zucchini plant was enough! I cannot imagine having multiple!
      I also shred up a bunch of zucchini and then freeze it. I did this a few years ago and had zucchini in the winter for making zucchini bread. Thanks for the recipe link. It sounds delicious!

    I have a zucchini pasta dish on my menu, but I may need to make your boats – haven’t done that in a while – and crushed red pepper is a staple in any dish I make that I know my husband won’t touch!

    I’ve had this zucchini pizza crust on my list of things to make – haven’t had time yet though!

    The zucchini recipes we’ve really liked can be found here Deb’s Cooking! Tag – Zucchini

    We’ve also sliced it up and heated it around with a sliced up Polish sausage for dinner and its so good!

      We’ve done something similar. It’s tasty that way too.

    Lots and lots of zucchini is a good problem to have! 🙂 The zucchini boats look delicious; I haven’t made them in quite some time but have to make some again…

    We planted zucchini a few years ago, and I remember making a lot of zucchini soup. I don’t think I have a recipe written down. I basically just sauteed the zucchini with onions and garlic, then added broth and spices and after the zucchini were soft pureed the soup. I know we really liked it. I should make it again and write down a recipe of the version I really like!

      Zucchini soup sounds interesting! Never heard of it!

    I want to plant zucchini! Our new house has raised beds and I can’t wait to rip everything out and start again.

    I make a zucchini chocolate cake, so I’d make 100 of those and freeze them and never have to worry about what to take to a dinner or morning tea again. If you’re wanting a more pactical option… well I don’t have one, lol!

      Ooh! Zucchini cake sounds so tasty!

    A friend passed this zucchini quiche recipe to me. It was great! I loved it for lunch.
    I used 3 zucchini instead of the 1 it called for. If you have a food processor you can grate the zucchini super fast and then grate the cheese right after.
