Zucchini Overload

My partner was given several large zucchini. I couldn’t let it go to waste and I got to try some fun ways to cook it. As always, I seemed to gravitate to baking (I have a sweet tooth and stress baking is something I often do).

I made some of my old standards (including tacos), but these were the new things I tried and that’s what this post is going to focus on.

Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake

I used the recipe from Isa Does It.  I borrowed the heart shaped bundt cake pan from my mom. It came out tasty and pretty.

 

Zucchini Bread

I used this recipe. I added some extra spices. The bread was a nice mix of summer flavor and comforting spice.

 

Zucchini Boats 

I’ve seen a bunch of recipes for zucchini boats. This was my first attempt and it came out pretty good. I spooned out the zucchini guts and diced the bits up. I mixed those with some chickpeas, garlic (3 cloves), some halved grape tomatoes, a couple shakes of Italian seasoning, olive oil, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. I should have added red pepper flakes. I cooked it in the oven for a about 30 minutes at 400.
