View Full Version : What to do with all of this zucchini and squash?
07-09-2008, 09:04 PM
Someone gave my roommate a huge bag of zucchini and yellow squash. She, in turn, gave everything to me since she doesn't like either vegetable.
Please help! I need to consume a sack full of these things before they go bad. Can they just be chopped up in salads? What else can I do with them? I'm very short on money right now, so the fewer additional ingredients the better.

You could do a "spaghetti" with some marinara sauce.. Cut up the squash and zuchinni into "noodles" and make marinara, "spaghetti" sauce for it..
Chop your squash or zucchini up into strips or use a spiralizer (sp?) to make it into spaghetti like "noodles"...
2 cups tomatoes, chopped
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup EVOO
juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
1 teaspoon pitted dates
1/2 teaspoon rosemary ( OR oregano )
1 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes
blend until smooth. :D

Zuchini/squash pasta is yummy.
Also, slice thinly, oil, salt, season and dehydrate into chips. They will keep forever because they are dehydrated.

If you own a dehydrator, you can try this recipe:
Just Like Ritz Crackers:
Side note: You can sub the hemp seeds with sesame seeds

If you want to keep it really affordable yet still tasty, my daughter loves just spiralized squash/zucchini soaked in olive oil with a tad of salt and lots of nutritional yeast. Sometimes I add cayenne on mine :)
