A Good Use For A Zucchini #Vegetarian

Sometimes grating a vegetable and squeezing all the moisture out of it just seems like too damn much work. Other days, it’s like zip! magically swift and easy! It’s like having a layabout genie in your brain who occasionally gets fits of energy and actually accomplishes something. Only it’s your brain.

So I got all ambitious and shredded a giganto zucchini. Well, let’s be honest, I got out my food processor and ran it through that. I lined a strainer with a clean, unfuzzy dish towel, tossed the shreds with salt, and let it sit while I did something else. Played Minecraft, maybe, or took a nap.

Then I twisted up that dish towel and I squoze it til I couldn’t squeeze no more. That giganto zucchini rendered down to a wad a little smaller than a baseball.

I put that with an egg, some seasoned breadcrumbs, and some grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese.

ZucFritRawMixed that all up (had to add a little more breadcrumbs) and formed it into fritters. Fried ’em in a little olive oil, or maybe it was vegan margarine. Our #1 Daughter says she likes to add shredded carrot for the color.

ZucFritIt was soooooooo good!

    Nice.
    I really like spaghetti squash. You can microwave them (after cutting them open, natch), and dig out the yummy goodness. Just like spaghetti, only the texture is always great, and it reheats much better than regular spag.

    And no flour, eggs, OR well, anything else.

      Alas, the corn is store-bought, because we got to the farmers’ market too late and some greedy-gut had boughten ALL THE CORN! We’ll clever-little-pig them next week, and get there earlier than they do!

      Maybe cooking isn’t meditation for you. I love it when I have time to mess with something, or when I have stuff I can knock out quickly if I don’t have much time. Cooking makes me happy. Or, at worst, less depressed.
