This is our green guy... given to us by my girlfriend who has a knack for farming. He loved sunning himself on our overly sunny back porch. My kids got a kick out of the size of Mr. Zuchinnie. My daughter even said it looked like a Veggie Tale. Before she got too attached... Mommy cut him up and made Zuk Pizza! It was Mmm..Mmm.. delicious. Don't worry, he didn't scream when I cut him up.
First cut into the poor guy. Make large thick slices. In a ziploc combine Extra Virgin Olive Oil & chopped garlic. Place the zucchini in the bag and coat with the mixture.
Throw your coated green circles on the grill with your other yums for the night. Flip them when you flip your meat. When they are cooked about 10 minutes on each side, coat the top with pizza sauce and add shredded mozzarella on top of that.
Now enjoy your yummy green guy... They really are so good.
After having Zucchini Pizza's for two nights we still had a good amount of our green guy left. So I did what I have done since I was a kid... make up a recipe with what I have on hand. Here is what I had.
Here is what it turned into: We will call it: Chocolate Blueberry Green Guy Bread.
1 Devil's Food Cake Box
1 Triple Berry Muffin Mix
2 1/2 cups water
3 eggs or egg substitute
(cream all of the above together)
2 1/2 cups zucchini chopped
1/2 cup of blueberries
1 cup of white chocolate chips
Pour into three bread pans. Cook at 350 for 35 - 40 minutes.
My kids loved it! My hubby loved it! It had fruit, veggies, and no oils in it! Success!
I saw this recipe
and thought, boy our green guy would have dressed well as a taco boat! Maybe next time.
I miss our Yummy Green Guy, but he was better on the dish than hanging out on the porch.
