Courgettes Farcies! Or stuffed zucchini! I can never get enough of this vegetable. Hollow out with a spoon and stuff with: A mixture of sauteed onions/garlic in plenty of olive oil. To that, add Italian seasonings, S & P, and breadcrumbs. Toss in a 1/4 cup pine nuts. Mix well and stuff the zucchini. Add chopped tomatoes on top, or vegan cheese crumbles & bake. They're "tres bon"!
Karen E Sullivan August 16, 2014 @12:37 pm

Zucchini Crisp is a marvelous way to use up those giant zucchini. People will not believe that it is NOT fresh apple crisp.The recipe is not like your typical apple crisp and a few steps are necessary for making it delectable and yummy that are not traditional. My friends and family love and ask me what kind of apples did I use. I smile and say I can't remember.
Carol Lustig August 15, 2014 @02:53 pm
Well my favorite way is to juice it, but if I sautee it I slice it thin and sautee with coconut oil, african curry spice, cinnamon, instant coffee, garlic, agave, ground pepper, pink Himalayan salt, a dash of Braggs aminos, onions, and your favorite other hearty vegetables, tomatoes, add healthy rice or other non-gluten grain.
Rhiannon Wolfe August 15, 2014 @02:34 pm
Roasted and served with ratatouille made from lots of other garden veggies! Mmm
Legs Jackson August 15, 2014 @01:17 pm
From the looks of your responses, you are pretty popular! And so is summer squash - I work for a food bank so others donate veggies for our clients. We try to teach them how to use all of the summer veggies - raw in salads, juiced, blended, sauteed, steamed, in a casserole - all with the purpose of getting out the word to eat more healthy and to be a role model for their children so they learn to eat it and cook it when they become adults. And shows like yours also advocate this.
Jennifer Arent August 15, 2014 @10:53 am
I love to shred it in the food processor and add it to tomato (spaghetti) based sauces. Extra sweetness and wonderful kick of veggies!
VeganChik August 15, 2014 @10:49 am

Ah, summer squash, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!

What's not to love? My kids agree!
DES August 15, 2014 @05:21 am

Brian logan August 14, 2014 @05:37 pm
My favorite way too prepare summer(yellow) squash is to stir fry it in vegetable oil with some chilli powder, oregano, and a pinch o salt. It's a great Mexican style side dish for vegetarian tacos or enchiladas.I also like too add zucchini, broccoli, onions, or some colorful bell peppers. Leftovers make a tasty quesadilla aswell!
David Hardy August 14, 2014 @05:29 pm

I toss chopped raw zucchini in a bowl of cooked Israeli Couscous. I'll add chopped green onions, carrots or other veggies and coat it with a simple lemony vinegrette dressing. Simple summer fun.
John Z August 14, 2014 @03:51 pm

Holly August 14, 2014 @02:06 pm
Since I don't eat onions, summer squash is a great replacement for filling the space and texture of onions in most recipes. Just sauté the same as onions, less cooking time. Or brown over a high heat if that's what's needed.
Pamela Kale August 14, 2014 @02:04 pm
In Lasagna!

Suki Haseman August 14, 2014 @10:47 am

Blend cream cheese and sour cream by halves in a processor. Add zucchini and mix a portion at a time until smooth. Chill overnight. Soup is best served very cold.
Elizabeth Levy August 14, 2014 @10:46 am
I LOVE making zucchini latkes, particularly with the zucchini that are overgrown and huge. I grate them and add whatever veggies I have leftover in my fridge and need to use. Just remember to scoop out the giant seeds in the center before grating them. You can add whatever spices and/or herbs to them before frying them, making them curried, Japanese, Chinese, Italian...whatever you choose! You can toast the seeds and gobble them up as well. Enjoy!
Linda Goudelock August 14, 2014 @10:41 am
Nothing beats grilled summer squash! I usually brush slices with extra virgin olive oil and then sprinkle with Italian herbs. If there's any leftover they go into a salad or in roasted veggie pasta.
Kristine August 14, 2014 @10:34 am
It is so simple but I love the flavor summer squash can get just from being grilled with some olive oil, salt and pepper!
William R. Bey August 14, 2014 @10:32 am
Tender, small summer squash sliced and sauteed with onion and green pepper in olive oil is perfect. There's really no need to do anything fancy with fresh, delicious squash from my veganic garden!
Barbara Kusak August 14, 2014 @10:16 am
I love to stuff zucchini with a herb bread stuffing then top with fresh tomato marinara. My very favorite is zucchini bread of course!!
Bernie August 14, 2014 @10:16 am
I love your show, the recipes that you prepare are out of this world. But the way I like summer squash is to fry them in a pan like I'm frying potatoes with onions, sweet potatoes, color peppers, rosemary, sea salt, cracked pepper and olive oil.
Patricia Cully August 14, 2014 @09:59 am
One of my favorite ways to cook summer squash is to slice no more than 1/4 inch thick, coat with a little Saffola and coat with seasoned bread crumbs and a favorite vegetarian seasoning and granulated garlic, then fry in Saffola oil turning when becoming brown.
Kathy August 14, 2014 @09:57 am
I fix lots of squash but really enjoy stuffing big zucchini with mushrooms, onions, garlic, tofu and seasonings. Baking with a small amount of vegan cheese and tomato sauce makes it look and taste wonderful.
Linda Robertson August 14, 2014 @09:56 am
I make a summer saute' with chunky summer squash, walla walla onion, garden tomato, salt and pepper with a sauce of homemade salsa and two T of organic ketchup. Garnish with chiffonade of fresh basil. This is also good as a pasta sauce and is better the next day!

I bake slices of summer squash dusted with dried mint and pepper (425 deg for 15-20 min), and then I put a bit of goat cheese on top. I love this recipe...it's like candy to me! p.s. Love, love your show! :)...and love you're sunny, jazzy cheerfulness too!

I love mine sauted with other vegetables--what I have on hand is all good. We have just gone vegan 5 months ago and are really loving it!!

Michele T. Clark August 14, 2014 @09:22 am
Love your show--Have changed my eating habits so much I've lost 97 pounds Since Dec. 2013 and still losing. We have a nuwave oven pro and we cut our summer squash into long planks and just cook it (on the high rack) until it gets a little color--it really brings out the sweetness. Looking forward to winning these books as I am hungry for new ways to eat healthier

vegan zucchini fritatta, but I also love rattatoui (my cooking is better than my spelling, honest)
Karen Conrad August 14, 2014 @09:20 am
Brown chunks of squash, then add to cooked quinoa with some kalamata olives, feta cheese, grape tomatoes -- add a touch of greek dressing- superb!

Mixed with black beans and spices - as taco filling.

I can't pick one!! There are so many zucchini delicacies that I make, zucchini lasagna, grilled, stuffed zucchini boats. Zucchini pasta with my spirooli, too many yummy recipes!

Simply pan fried in a little oil with a bit of sea salt with nothing else to distract from the amazing flavor!

I have been watching your show for years. So excited to try and win your cookbook. Love that you have so many different ideas and recipes. I am going to raw food because of my asthma that is not well managed.

Paula August 13, 2014 @10:03 am
I love to make zucchini subs! I sauté the squash with peppers, onions, & garlic. Once tender, I stir in some marinara. I then place the mixture on sub rolls & perhaps top with a little vegan cheese. Jazzylicious!!!
Susan Morgaine August 13, 2014 @08:23 am

I love to use my mandolin to slice organic summer squash, stir a small amount of salt, let sit for 1 hour, then pad dry with paper towel, toss a small amount of organic olive oil, pepper flakes, coarse ground pepper, a dash of turmeric , and place on baking pan lined in parchment paper with minimal overlapping. place pan in center of oven at 250 degrees for around 55 minutes, drizzle with balsamic vinegar, and juice from half a Key lime, let cool for 5 minutes, and plate up with a small amount of chopped parsley as a wonderful, crispy side dish or healthy snack that is crispy, savory, and salty!
luka beth August 12, 2014 @04:45 pm

Jacky August 12, 2014 @01:51 pm
My favorite way to prepare summer squash is in Isa Chandra Moskowitz's Tempeh Giardino recipe! Giardino just means "garden," but it's tempeh, tomatoes, yellow squash, and fresh basil sauteed with olive oil and red pepper flakes. It's easy and amazingly good! I also love to add yellow squash and zucchini to veggie chili with tomatoes and bell peppers to give it extra veggie goodness to complement the beans.
Cee Couch August 12, 2014 @01:50 pm
