Making Zucchini Fun for Kids and Adults
Zucchinis are in season and in abundant supply.
Zucchini is one of the very low calorie vegetables, with only 17 calories per 100 grams and containing no saturated fats. I think we should eat more of this especially after all the Easter chocolate binges.
Luckily, they are cheap too. They are currently selling at $1.98 kilogram at the green grocers.
Aside from adding zucchini to your pasta dish or in your Sunday veggie bake, what else can you make with all that zucchini? Time to get creative and come up with different ways to bring out the best flavour of these beautiful zucchini.
Here are my favorite zucchini recipes that will make you see this versatile zucchini in a whole new way.
1. Zucchini Chips
Potato chips nudge over, zucchini chips are in the house.
With a junk food name and taste, these zucchini fries are perfect as a quick snack or as a dinner appetizer. Dip them in a good creamy Greek yogurt for an instant taste sensation.
I have done a brilliant twist on classic potato rosti. I've swapped potato for zucchini and sweet potato. They tasted lighter and sweeter than the normally dense potato rosti. I've also added proscuitto crisp for crunchiness. Omit that if you are a vegetarian.
These make a great autumn light snack and perfect for a lazy morning brunch.
They are crunchy, colourful and delicious. What's not to love about them?
