Zucchini coming out our ears

Help me get rid of this zucchini. We have a ton of it from an organic co-op. We have some Turkish recipes that we love, we've made bread, we've shredded and frozen some, we've put it in a steamed veggie side dish. What now? Anyone have some good recipes? TIA

I like to slice some and then dip the rounds in an egg dip (flavored with salt and pepper) then dip again in garlic flavored bread crumbs with salt, pepper, onion powder, more garlic, oregano and parsley. Fry until nicely brown on both sides in good olive oil.

Here's how my mother in law makes it some times.

Greek Zucchini!!


zucchini
olive oil
green peppers
sliced black olives
onions
pasley, ground cumin, oregano, salt, pepper, dash sugar, garlic (amount up to you)
canned tomatoes or sauce and 1/3 cup water

Directions:
Saute onions, parsley,garlic in olive oil
add zucchini and green peppers,olives, and ground cumin, oregano, salt and pepper and sugar
stir for a few minutes and then add tomatoes and water if needed

cover and cook over low heat until soft.

I have been slicing them. Make large pieces because they are going on the grill and you don't want them to fall through the grates. In a zip lock bag I put the zucchini along with olive oil, sesame oil, fish sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and sliced garlic. Marinate on the counter, turning the bag occasionally. You can let it sit anywhere from a half hour to overnight. Grill until done to your liking. We have been doing this a ton lately and DW said she could just eat this for dinner alone with nothing else it is so good.

We shish kebab ours. It makes a wonderful side dish.

I also grate a bunch and add it to soups, stews and bake with it.

I'd certaily whip up some zucchini bread and muffins! I like to hollow bigger ones out (much like you would with an eggplant) and stuff them with any number of stuffings (optionally includig the zucchini flesh you just scoped out). And then bake them (or wrap them in foil and bbq them).

Nice stuffing ideas can be rice and tomatoes (sort of like Spanish rice), bell peppers, black olives and good quality canned tuna, or a four cheese sort of sauce with herbs.

1-finely chopped red onion
1-red bell pepper thin strips or diced
1-c. sherry vinegar
1/2c. sugar
1/3c. evoo
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Slice the squash paper thin into a large shallow bowl. Add celery, red pepper,red onion.
Combine remaining ingredients in saucepan, bring to boil to dissolve sugar. Pour over veggies while still hot. Cover and marinate at room temp or chill overnight...Drain and serve...
I like this very cold, kids like it room temp...You decide how you prefer it.
