Jan 31, 2024

What to make when your zucchini plants start to over produce.

The humble zucchini, also known as courgettes, are one of the most robust vegetable plants to grow from seed, and one you’ll get amazing produce results from.

There is never a shortage of ideas and recipes of what to make with your zucchini.

Here is a list from my favourite chefs, authors, food bloggers and newspapers.

Zucchini Bread and Butter Pickle

I like a recipe from Analiese Gregory that she shared on her instagram page once. Sadly it’s not available in a web version. I have found this very similar recipe of Helen Jacksons (An addition of 1/2 tsp of chilli is nice too).

Helen Jackson has the best website called Foodlovers

One-Pot Zucchini-Basil Pasta

A recipe from the New York Times ‘Cook with Me’ section.

This no-colander-necessary, one-pot pasta method isn’t a gimmick: Cooking the noodles in just enough seasoned stock means they’re done in the same amount of time it takes the liquid to reduce into a concentrated, extra flavourful sauce.

If you have a glut of courgettes (zucchinis) in your garden right now, then this is THE recipe for you. I’m warning you though, Parmesan Courgette Fries can become a little addictive!

Zucchini Frittata

A recipe from Annabel Langbein

This is a fantastic breakfast-for-dinner recipe that is also a welcome addition to any summer picnic. You can use whatever vegetables or herbs you have at hand. We like to use little potatoes from the garden, but any potatoes will do.

A recipe from me!

This Indian inspired zucchini relish not only helps rid you of the excess zucchini you have been growing. But it is also the only relish you will need to eat with cheese and crackers!
