I had bought a 4 pack of zucchini the other day. What to do, what to do? I have always wanted to make zucchini bread. Finally got around to making it! First off, you have to zest a lemon. Couldn't find my zester! Don't know how you could not find it! It has a hot green handle, but I could not. So off to chopping it finely myself. yuck. So then I'm mixing it all together and I mix up the baking soda and baking powder measurements. 1/2 t. baking soda, I put in 1/2 t. of baking powder, + 1/2 t. baking soda. I think that's why my bread came out so dense. Still good but dense! (so while all this is happening, my daughter locks her bedroom door, so I have to wait for my husband to get up because he is better at picking locks them I am!)
The outside was nice and crunchy. Although it came out dense, it didn't stop me from eating two slices.....
Zoe on the other hand, was not a fan!
So while that was baking (took 55 minutes) I thought hmm...(that and I couldn't pack up Zoe's room like I had planned b/c we are still locked out at this point!) what else can I made with this zucchini. I searched on pinterst and found this one recipe. Then I changed it up b/c I did not have all the ingredients.
I think I over seasoned it, but it came out pretty tasty, and filling.
Original recipe can be found here.
I'll share the "recipe" I did. Its one of those recipes that you throw everything in but the kitchen sink.
- 1 1/2 med. zucchini's, shredded
- 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
- 1/4 c. corn (left overs for us)
- 3/4 c. of Bisquick
- 1/2 c. egg substitute
- 1/2 c. ricotta cheese
- seasoning salt and pepper
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- oil for frying
So basically I just threw all that stuff together and mixed. I heated up the oil in a frying pan and threw about 2 T. of mixture in the oil and fan fried for about 1-2 minutes per side. It's just like making a pancake. Once it was done I drained it on paper towells. I have to almost always have a sauce with stuff, so I quickly made a "remoulade". Remoulade is a mayo based sauce (french), I guess mine can be considered tartar, but whatev's. I mixed mayo with relish and lemon juice. voila, instant sauce.
So I think both of these misses could be hits, with a little bit more tweaking.
Has anyone experimented in the kitchen lately? Any hits or misses??
