Sarge, I may try that, sans mushrooms, which I loathe.

I love grilled zucchini - drizzle thick slices with olive oil or italian dressing, a little sea salt or kosher salt, then a twist from a pepper grind. Put on grill, turn after 1-1/2 minutes, grill another minute or so, then remove and eat.

Once of the few times I eat zucchini is when I'm camping. I chop up squash and zucchini into medallions, add some Vidalia onion, baby carrots, butter, salt, pepper, and wrap the whole thing up in foil. I throw it into the campfire after I've made my burgers/steaks, after the fire has died down, and let it all steam inside the foil. It's pretty damn good with the stars coming out.

I love eating grilled zuccs. I take my Zucchini and cut it long ways in half then brush with Olive oil, sprinkle spices/salt/pepper, then cook on the grill a few minutes. There is no better way to eat these. Typically I mix it up with some yellow squash made the same way.

Absolutely! But I'm not a huge fan of squash. Zucchini stays firm but squash gets really mushy, and while the flavor is good, I can't handle that mushy texture.

I'm tired of zucchini as a vegetable, pretty much no matter how it's cooked anymore. I do like it as a main dish stuffed with minced meat and tomato sauce, and practically any of the baked desserts with zucchini I'll enjoy. But otherwise, I've grown tired of it.

However, as a low carber, I am really interested in giving zoodles a try in place of wheat pasta. I've heard good things about them when cut by a Paderno Spiralizer and prepped properly.

Menolly, I just wanted to say that I've tried that glazed lemon zucchini recipe twice now, and like it so much that I'm making it a third time this weekend! Thank you for the information! (Because of cholesterol concerns, I substitute egg beaters for eggs and extra virgin olive oil for the canola oil--and because Alpine is over 8,000 feet above sea level, I have to let it bake for at least an hour and fifteen minutes--but it's a great outcome!!)


I want to add that the other contributed suggestions by everybody on this thread sound terrific, too!

Made the lemon glazed zucchini bread one more time, for relatives while I'm on a weekend visit to Tucson. It was a hit!
