Zucchini & Broccoli Pesto

Zucchini and Broccoli Pesto Spread or Dip

450 Grams Broccoli
2 large zucchini peeled and diced finely
45 grams Roquefort blue cheese
40 grams of French creamy style butter

Wash the veggies well and chop all very finely and place in a Food Processor.

Place the cheese and butter at room temperature ...

Add some herbs if you wish ...

Very tasty with Grossini bread sticks and / or crackers of choice.

Good Post.
Lots of fun ideas ...

*** note : many eggplant recipes are inter changeable with zucchini

*** pizza, pasta ...

Zucchini we like this and when you have zucchini coming out your ears its a god send. Hope you will enjoy it like we do.Melt 3 tab. of butter in a large skillet. Add 1-1/2 lbs of zucchini cut on the diagonal along with one onion cut in wedges, I like to chop the onion myself, but following instructions from my daughter one teas. crushed garlic,salt and pepper,to your taste. fresh or dried basil one teas.this all goes into a med hot skillet cover and cook til tender crisp about 5 min. Then turn into a shallow baking dish sprinkle with 6-7 oz of shredded jack or pepper jack cheese. Put under the broiler til cheese has melted. Eat while hot and enjoy.

Zucchini & Summer Squash Ideas

I hate them, really. I hate zucchini as much as I LOVE zucchini flowers.
I mean, to give them some fragrance, you really have to spice them up!
Can't stand this spineless veg

Any advice? But I need some recipe which possibly uses less then 134 ingredients, and no nuts or seeds allowed...
You eat what you are

Peel, split, remove seeds, stuff with a bread crumb - pork sausage meat mix.
Top with a tomato sauce and cheeses of your choice.
Bake in oven or in a covered pan on the stove top.

Luca, Buon Giorno,

I am a bit surprised ... However, we all have our likes & detestables ...

I love my zucchini sliced lengthwise in julienne strips, drizzled with fresh lemon & dredged in flour and fried in Olive Oil until golden crispy ...

I detest: Soy in any format, pumpkin, yellow squash, and in all honesty, overcooked beef or fish / shellfish.

Zucchini is the only form of squash family I am fond of.

Have fab August,
Ciao, Margi.

Peel, shred outer portion, steam in 1 cup water with 1 - 2 tsp white vinegar.
Drain, reserving liquid.
Prepare 2 tablespoons of roux.
Add 150 ml sour cream.
Bring to desired degree of creaminess by adding reserved cooking liquid.
Add steamed zucchini and mix.
Refrigerate overnight.
Serve warmed or at room temperature.

advice?yeah,don't eat them then....sorry just seen no nuts allowed....shouldn't have replied should i?!
seriously tho' luca i love courgettes/zucchini whatever they are called.we call the green ones courgettes & the yellow ones zucchini over here.i use a lot of baby veg in my recipe's so,if you can get them or grow them.pick them young/small & use them whole in curries,ratatouille etc.they have a crunch to them even after cooking.
one of the nicest condiments i've had was zucchini bottled in a brine/mild vinegar liquid with lots of pepper corns,mustard seeds & chilli in it.the zucchini had been split lengthways & the seeds scooped out....deelish!
i don't bottle anything up(probably noticed ) but i'm sure that there are loads of people on here,bolas for one,who could advise...hope that helps buddy
I spent a lot of money on booze,birds & fast cars.The rest I just squandered.

Thinly sliced fried zucchini goes nicely with broiled or baked salmon.
