From the Market to your table, Zucchini

The Market will be selling fresh Zuchini this week so we have posted some delicious recipes and new ways of cooking with Zuchini.

Zuchini Fries


  • zucchini
  • egg white
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable cooking spray


Preheat oven to 425°. Cut zucchini into 3-inch sticks. Whisk an egg white in a small bowl, and add milk. Combine Parmesan and seasoned breadcrumbs in a separate bowl. Dip zucchini sticks into egg mixture, and then roll in breadcrumb mixture. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray, and place zucchini on sheet. Bake for 25 or 30 minutes or until golden brown.

You will love this as a side dish!

Grilled Zucchini

Serves 4 (as a side dish)
You will need:
  • 2 zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices
  • 2-3 teaspoons Salad Elegance seasoning blend
  • olive oil for drizzling
  1. Preheat your grill to medium heat.
  2. Sprinkle seasoning blend over sliced zucchini. Drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Place prepared zucchini on the grill. Cook 5-8 minutes or until grill marks are darkened and zucchini starts to brown.  (Note: To get the perfect grill marks, don’t move the zucchini around too much.)
  4. Serve.
I am happy to say that I actually grilled these and not Ryan. It was my first attempt at grilling veggies and while I did lose one poor little guy between the grates, I like to think of this as a deliciously successful experiment. But Ryan has no need to worry, I have no plans on taking over permanently, I wasn’t too keen on smelling like BBQ the rest of the night.
