Zucchini left? Make it zucchini butter!

Must Try

Zucchini are currently in full season. Perhaps you were able to score a few nice specimens at the greengrocer or maybe you have a large harvest from your own garden. In any case, you can do many things with zucchini. For example, make one of these recipes with zucchini , or do like our friends from The Kitchn and make zucchini butter (!).

When our eye fell on that recently, we had to admit what a brilliant idea it is.

Zucchini Butter

The concept of zucchini butter is simple. Grate courgettes (lots of courgettes) and let it reduce on medium heat until it starts to caramelize a bit. This creates a deeper taste and the texture of a dip that you can then spread liberally on toast or flatbread.

Of course you can flavor the zucchini butter in different ways. For example, add a shallot and garlic and season with salt and pepper for a very good basic version. Or add some lemon juice and chili pepper for a kick. Or go the Asian way and finish with a dash of soy sauce ( Tomasu’s for example!). If it is a bit fuller, add a knob of butter to the whole, but with quality olive oil it is also very tasty. You can experiment with this yourself (also think of spices such as cumin, fennel seed or paprika), so go ahead.

Et alors?

And then, once you’ve made such a serving of zucchini butter? Try it first on a piece of toast, with or without extra toppings such as roasted nuts and fresh herbs.

But you can also use the zucchini butter as a sauce for your pasta salad or as a side dish with fish or chicken. You could also stir it into a scrambled egg or omelet, or serve it with a drink with quick homemade flatbread . Bet it won’t be long before that bowl is empty?
