Kailey Foster- So, what recipes do you have to share with us right now?

Teresa Hunsaker- I assume this time of 12 months might be a good time to remind people today how to use zucchini in unique means other than just zucchini bread or zucchini muffins.

KF- What is your favored zucchini recipe?

TH- Oh, a person that I love was a sliced zucchini salad. At initially, individuals are like, oh, I don’t know, but this a person is great. Slice your zucchinis, place a tiny bit of prepared pesto in it, a minor bit of lemon juice, maybe a tiny lemon zest, some mustard, garlic. 

The new additions to this that people today will not ordinarily feel about is to include a tiny little bit of sliced mini cucumbers and some refreshing backyard peas or even some contemporary frozen peas. And then and finally, stir in some parmesan cheese and some green onions and best it with some crisp bacon strips or crumbled bacon. It is so yummy. Everybody enjoys this, and at very first, they assume I am not positive, but it really is fantastic. 

And then, just a reminder that you can use zucchini in zucchini pancakes,  zucchini boats, and stuffed zucchini. You can also use zucchini in all unique forms of sauces and provide it around rice or noodles.

It is also excellent in pasta salads, just cubed with some tomatoes and other greens. So zucchini has a large amount of flexibility, and appropriate now, just grading it and freezing that for later in the drop. Then you can maybe make a zucchini soup. So, heaps of alternatives for zucchini.

KF- You piqued my fascination with zucchini pancakes. Do you have a recipe on hand for that?

TH- You know, you include some zucchini and a very little little bit of cinnamon to a normal pancake recipe, and you will be very good to go. I will give the recipe for you.

TH- That is one particular of my pretty favorites! You can shred some chicken, some black beans, a tiny bit of bitter product and cheese, some cumin, and a very little little bit of taco blend. Then, I prime it with cheese and bake these half zucchinis. 

This is superb, so straightforward. It sort of has a Latino flair to it or a Mexican food stuff aptitude to it. So yummy!
