Do you ever get tired of me saying “You HAVE to try this?” Really .. you HAVE to try this .. within the next 24 hours.
Most gardeners this time of year are begging folks to take zucchini off their hands. This morning I was googling “zucchini recipes”. I figured I could make bread and zucchini fritters, grilled zucchini and the way I normally fix it . . kinda sauteed with onions and soy sauce. I even stick a few of the whole ones in the freezer and then put them out for the chickens like popsicles on these scorching hot days.
This afternoon on King Arthur Flour’s Facebook page, they had a link to this recipe for Baked Zucchini Sticks and Sweet Onion Dip. I’ve done something similar to that before but figured . . what the heck . . I need another veggie for dinner so I made the onion dip and stuck it in the fridge, then fixed the zucchini when it was time for dinner.
Darn, I should have taken a picture but I didn’t.
Vince just went on and on about how good it was. He was picking at a friend on text and threatened to not give her any more cucumber dip and then he told her about the zucchini. I said “I guess it’s ok to fix this again, huh?” and he said “Yes! Tomorrow!” I used all my panko tonight though so unless I go to town tomorrow (doubtful), we won’t have this again tomorrow.
That sweet onion dip was amazing. I’m thinking it would be delicious with brie and crackers.
So, call up your nearest gardening friend and do them a favor . . ask if they have any extra zucchini!
