It's summer and there are tons of zucchine. They don't have all that much flavor, and i have a hard time foisting them on my family (and i am pretty sick of them too). Advantages: nothing to peel, nothing to wash in tons of water and lift out to get rid of sand, cheap, plentiful Disadvantages: not much taste. So, while i do enjoy an occasional baby zucchina just barely blanched with olive oil, the pleasure fades fast, and the tiny ones are not so easy to find. Here is all i can come up with (I detest vegetables boiled in tomato so i ignore any recipe that involves boiling in tomato: - cut up and sauteed with garlic and oil - cut up, sauteed in garlic and oil till soft and used over pasta - grated and cooked in butter and garlic (julia child) - grated and cooked in butter and oil and garlic over pasta - sauteed with garlic, put in a baking dish with tomatoes, origano and mozarella and baked - sliced lengthwise and put on baking sheets with a mixture of breadcrumbs and grated or smashed garlic, origano, oil, salt and pepper on top, and baked. - breaded and fried or batter fried and that's about it. i know people do stuff like zucchine alla parmigiana, but really why bother to do all that work with zucchine when eggplant is so much tastier? It seems like a lot of different dishes, but somehow it seems there should be more you can do with it. Maybe some non-italian dishes. thanks p.s i know i can look on internet, but i want dishes someone has actually tried and liked.
