If that’s the case, you might like my list of 9 Clean Eating zucchini bread recipes. If you have zucchini coming out of your ears, zucchini bread is a really good way to use up some of those zucchini :).
I did the unthinkable this year. I didn’t plant any zucchini! I don’t need to worry, the neighbors will give me all I want. Actually you know what I do sometimes when I have a lot of extra zucchini which is really easy. I freeze it and then make zucchini bread or cake ( I have a great chocolate cake that uses zucchini). It’s really easy to freeze zucchini.
I just pick it and wash it and shred it just like I do to make zucchini bread. Then I measure out how much I use to make a batch of bread, which is usually about 2 cups. I throw it into a ziploc bag, seal it and throw it in the freezer. Then when I want to use it, all I have to do is defrost it in the microwave. Because it’s already the correct amount for a batch of bread, that’s all I have to do.
Just so you don’t freak out, after zucchini is frozen and thawed out it will have a large amount of liquid in the bowl. All the liquid seems to come out of the zucchini when it defrosts. Don’t worry about it, just pour the liquid and all into the bowl with the rest of your ingredients. You need the liquid in the recipes to make it moist enough. This will give you an idea of how much water is inside a zucchini. It’s a lot for sure. I don’t suppose you ever thought about that before.
You wouldn’t want to eat frozen zucchini for zoodles or anything similar, you need fresh for that. But freezing zucchini works great for making breads and cakes and other similar recipes.
That’s why I didn’t plant any zucchini this year. I still have enough left over from last year in my freezer to make all the bread I want to make.
