Oldie but Goodie: Zucchini Flour

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:

Zucchini Bread 

Zucchini Pineapple

Zucchini Flour

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.

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 ...

or in squash/zucchini patties.

What are some things you do with zucchini?

Update 2/17/2015 ... I've been asked what kind of dehydrator I use, the links above don't seem to be working so I'm trying it this way.  This is the dehydrator that I have and use along with the food chopper and carrot peeler mentioned above.
