Zucchini is prolific in our garden and I’ve been on the search for ways to use it. Here’s what I’ve found so far:
Yes, you read that correctly … zucchini flour. Here’s how to make it:
Wash and peel the zucchini
Using a carrot peeler, ‘peel’ the zucchini until it is all in small strips. I used the zucchini that had gotten BIG. I also sometimes peel the zucchini and slice it into 1/8 inch slices. In fact, having tried both ways I think I prefer the later, but that's just my personal preference. Both ways work fine.
Place in dehydrator and dry
When drying is complete, put the dried zucchini strips in a blender, food processor or chopper and grind it into flour.
Note: zucchini flour would do well preserved by oven canning.
Okay, so now we have zucchini flour, what do we do with it? Here are some ideas:
Substitute 1 cup for flour in bread recipes
As a filler in meatloaf, burgers, etc
In squash/zucchini patties
Can you think of other ways to use zucchini flour?
