Zucchini noodles with chicken and tomatoes in a lemon garlic sauce

I am just loving my spiralizer attachment from KitchenAid and it's been super busy in my kitchen!  If you don't the kitchenAid attachment there are other ways to spiralize including using a vegetable peeler.

This recipe was inspired by left overs!  I love roasting 2 chickens at once and serving for dinner one night then cutting the rest up and using for several different meals.  I freeze what I won't use in the next 2 days.  I also keep a little packed away for Jake! Love my doggie...

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I found 3 very large zucchini in one of my gardens and decided what a great way to make chocolate zucchini bread. When I shredded the zucchini the seeds were extremely large so I did not use them but there was plenty of zucchini to make 2 breads.

This is not a Paleo recipe but I do have one here which is very good so either one is a great zucchini bread to enjoy! Paleo Zucchini Bread

Grilled Summer Vegetable Salad

I love summer vegetables and especially grilled then drizzle balsamic vinegar.  This makes a great salad for your next Paleo Picnic.

Cindy's Important Tip:  Be sure to take the time after you slice the eggplant and zucchini to salt and let sit.  I like to layer with paper towels and top with a pan for 20-25 minutes. This will drain the moisture from the vegetables and allow them to grill perfectly.

Italian Zucchini Chips

When I was a little girl my Nana and I would fry up zucchini slices as a late night snack.  I wanted to share a paleo recipe and they were baked!  I made a simple marinara sauce - this is what I did!

You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons onion, minced
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoon Italian seasonings

Heat a saucepan over medium heat.  Add in olive oil and once hot add in garlic and onion. Cook for 1 minutes then add in the remaining ingredients and stir together.  Cook for about 10 minutes or longer and your marinara is ready!  Enjoy..

Olive Oil Zucchini Bread

My dad went away for a week and when they returned his zucchini were very large!  So he gave me two and I knew a few loaves of zucchini bread was going to be baked in my oven!  I love adding extra-virgin olive oil in my zucchini bread - It makes it extra special...   I am Italian.. 

I did make one for my son and added 3/4 cup of chocolate chips!  Once a mother always a mother no matter what age your kids are!

Cindy's Tip!  Take your zucchini and shred either by using a box grater or the disk attachment on your food processor.  The the zucchini and place in a colander in the sink and place few paper towels on top (maybe a stack of 4) then top with a pan for about 30 minutes.  When ready to use just do one more press down on the paper towels.  That will remove the excess liquid and make a perfect bread.

Zucchini Bread French Toast

Here's a secret! I always double the recipe and make 2 loaves of zucchini bread. We enjoy one immediately and then freeze the other. When our kids are home for the weekend, or we have guests at our lake house, i can quickly take this out of freeze and make French toast! This is really a gourmet breakfast or brunch to enjoy. I love to add fresh fruit on top then drizzle pure maple syrup.

 

*CHEFS NOTE* You can make the French toast in advance just preheat your oven to 100 F and place on a baking sheet until ready to serve. You can also add crushed nuts to the bread after you dip in the eggs! My granddaughter loves when I grate a little dark chocolate to her zucchini french toast.

Zucchini Fettuccine with Cauliflower Alfredo and Peas

If you know me then you should expect peas in my pasta dishes.  I created this dish using many of my favorite combination of vegetables!  This dish is super delicious.  I bet adding chicken or shrimp to this dish would be very good.

Due to my new love for turmeric; I decided to add some into this dish. Yum.

If you are following a vegan diet then omit the bacon and just sauté the zucchini in oil.  Enjoy

Zucchini Fritters

There is something about these zucchini fritter that makes everyone around me so happy! I end up making a double batch and freezing them.  I always start by making these as a side dish but the best part is for breakfast. Just warm the fritter in the microwave for under 1 minute and top with a poached egg.

You can also add other vegetables such as a sweet potato, yellow onion or red bell pepper.  This is a great way to use left over vegetables in your refrigerator.

**Cindy's Tip! There are a couple of ways to shred your zucchini.  I use the blade attachment on my food processor or you can use a box cheese grater.  To do this, clean your zucchini, cut off both ends and grate. **

Serving this dish with fresh grilled fish is a perfect combination.  Zucchini  (courgette) can be grilled, fried, sauteed, or eating raw in a salad.  I grew up eating zucchini and eggs for breakfast and now, I just love making pasta with this versatile vegetable!

**Cindy's Tip!--A mandolin works great for creating ribbons but a vegetable peeler is also a wonderful tool in the kitchen.  You may want to discard the first few as it will be the green only from the zucchini's skin **
