Video: Zucchini Dishes
Soon, in almost every garden plot, multi-colored zucchini will lie, exposing their sides to the sun. I once began to grow white-fruited zucchini varieties, and now there is a real zucchini rainbow in the garden every year: white, yellow, green, black, striped. Round zucchini were also added last year: striped Round Nice and dark green Round from Piacenza.
I often heard: "Well, what to do with them, what to do with so many of them?" …
Our zucchini do not stale, dishes from them are in demand, are loved. Maybe someone will find our favorite recipes useful, suddenly someone will discover a delicacy in a zucchini.
Favorite zucchini recipes
The first is zucchini pancakes, lazy and gourmet. I collect only young zucchini up to 5-7 cm in diameter. They have a delicate skin and do not need to be peeled. For lazy pancakes, the zucchini must be grated on a coarse grater, mixed with the dough, you can add onions and garlic. Delicious with sour cream and herbs.
In pancakes for gourmets, I cut the zucchini into thin slices (across). I dip each slice in the dough and fry on both sides. Seasonings according to your taste.
I stuff round zucchini. From young ovaries with a diameter of 10-12 cm, it is necessary to cut off the top together with the stalk, remove the pulp with a spoon, chop and mix with minced meat, tightly fill hollow zucchini with this mixture. Fasten the lid on top with matches or wooden toothpicks. Can be served one piece per serving.
I also stuff pumpkins of the Smile and Kroshka varieties. I mix boiled rice, raisins, dried apricots with a spoon of honey and stuff everything tightly into the pumpkin. I cook in the microwave.
In a transparent ovenproof saucepan, you can make zucchini, pumpkin, and carrot stew. I cut carrots into slices, zucchini and pumpkin into cubes. I put it in layers of different colors, you can add semi-boiled rice, raisins. Pour in water and simmer, covered, until tender. Serve on the table in a transparent saucepan.
The recipe for a very tasty salad from zucchini for the winter (a variant of lazy zucchini caviar), it seems to me, will appeal to many. You can eat it hot, cold, just make sandwiches out of it, add it as a side dish. He's good everywhere.
2 kg of zucchini; 10 pieces of medium-sized bulbs; 5-7 pieces of peppers (not small); 10 medium sized tomatoes.
To fill in 1 liter of water, take: 350 g of tomato paste (not Italian); 2 teaspoons of citric acid; 2.5 tbsp. tablespoons of salt; 1 glass of sunflower oil; 1 cup granulated sugar.

Vegetables are placed in a boiling pot in the following order: zucchini, onions, peppers, tomatoes. Each tab is cooked for 10 minutes. Then the salad is immediately laid out on hot jars and rolled up.
