Zucchini Five Ways: My Date With a Monster!

marrow

Hi all,

We were given a giant zucchini (courgette) by the owner of Mikros Apoplous restaurant in Adamas while we were having lunch there. Here is the result of the challenge I set myself as promised in my comment on Beth’s post. Em says it’s a marrow. I don’t know,  I’ll let you decide.

So here we go. This big bruiser became: 1. peppy roasted snack seeds, 2. puree with pesto , 3. roasted cubes,  4.baked semi-circles, and 5. grated shards to toss in mixed salad or slaw. Each had a different texture and flavour…and if I do say so myself, each was delicious.

Both were pretty peppy but you can easily adjust how hot they are.

I started with 500 grams of dried chickpeas. You can use canned for both recipes but the flavor won’t be quite as good. Continue reading
