Ahhhhh I loooooove summer veggies (and fruits, but this is about veggies)!
Let’s talk zucchini…
love it in slices,
love it on the grill,
Love it as fries and
Love it in a pie!… Or bread
(The moment was brought to you by Dr Seuss).
Ok so zucchini is awesome, but sometimes I find myself with a few zucchini laying around. So why not make zucchini bread! It’s super quick and easy and is great as a snack, a side, or a meal on it’s own. This recipe is specifically gluten free. I think I have mentioned my sis is GF and it eating GF $$$$$eriously adds up! So this recipe not only gets the best bang or your buck, but makes enough to freeze! This recipe is based on pretty much every generic zucchini recipe, but I’ve tweaked it, to make it a little lighter and fluffier. One of the big parts of this recipe is that you grate your veggies, like with a vegetable grater. Not only is it an incredible time saver, but it keeps the texture of the bread consistent.
1 box of gluten free Bisquick
8oz bag of shredded cheese
1.5 cups of grated Parmesan or Romano
2 yellow zucchini medium
2 green zucchini medium
2 large onions
1.5 scant cups of oil (I recommend coconut oil, as this is a dense bread and the coconut oil lightens it up a bit)
Season with salt and pepper and other seasonings if desired
-Preheat oven to 350°
-Grease 3 pie plates
– in very large bowl grate the zucchini and onions, mix together thoroughly, and set aside
– thoroughly mix together eggs, cheese, and Parmesan, and any other seasoning
– add entire box of gluten free Bisquick to egg mixture and mix thoroughly
– add egg and Bisquick mixture to grated veggies and mix very well
(note adding the wet to the veggies
makes it easier to mix all together)
-Divide mixture between 3 pie plates
-Bake for 40 minutes
-let cool before cutting (or it will crumble)
This bread freezes so incredibly well. Heat left overs in an oven or toaster oven to get nice crispy corners on the bread. I will say that when I have made this I have been told this feels like a frattot then bread, since it is so dense. This bread is great as a meal by itself, or a slice can take the place of all the sides in a meal. Enjoy!
