When we were at Jenn's house on Saturday she gave us each a HUGE zucchini to take home with us. I was happy to take it because this year my garden isn't really producing right now...things are growing but not big enough to pick. Of course this happens the year I found a bunch of recipes I want to try out using zucchini and I have none from my own garden yet. I also refuse to buy in the store since I know I will have some eventually.
Since all the recipes I wanted to make calls for shredding I decided to make it easy on myself. I broke out my food processor. Well to my surprise I got a total of 10 cups of shredded zucchini.
I decided since I had so much I was going to try out the Zucchini brownies Jenn make and another recipe I found out there in the world of blogs: zucchini cakes on The Pinoeer Woman Cooks blog. Check out her blog for the recipe and pictures of the whole process. Below are my pictures of the finished product.
Review: I have to say right off the bat this one is a keeper! It was easy to make and the flavor was really good. The recipe calls for 1 large zucchini shredded. Honestly I don't know how big a large zucchini is because if you get one from a home garden...well lets just say it could be a baseball bat. The ones from the supermarket are usually much smaller and a large one there is really a small one from the garden. So I used about 3 cups but I think next time I might try to use a little bit more. I would have this time but the baby woke up and I had to put the mixture in the refrigerator until I had time to cook them. I also used Italian flavored bread crumbs because that was all I had and I used grated Parmesan cheese.
