There are lots of chocolate cake with zucchini recipes on the web; and if you have gluten-free friends you could make this for them:

Zucchini Soup is great, cook your zucchini in chicken or vegie stock, blend it, I use a stick blender in the pot, then grate in cream cheese as you serve it.  That's it.

Curtis Stone's Zucchini & Vintage Cheddar quiche.

My DH loved it and so did it.

I originally saw it in the Coles catalouge.

Zucchini Soup is great

That's what I'll generally make too.  When it's zucchini season, we get an abundance from the neighbours and family.  I hate zucchini slice (I must be alone here, it's suggested a lot on EB), it's a watery, tasteless boring thing to eat IMO.

I also like the old fashioned tomato and onion bake with zucchini added (and topped with breadcrumbs).

Or, I'll grate it into bolognaise sauce and use for spag bog or lasagna.  

I feel quite restricted with zucchini, it's probably my least favourite vegetable.

Cut them in half
Hollow the out
Combine the inside with chopped onion, tuna and cottage cheese.
Replace and bake in oven.

You can use other ingredients, different cheese or tomato flavoured tuna etc...

Yum yum yum

Big ones - do baked zucchini

Sliced in quiche or frittata, strifrys

Grated in spag bog, sang choi bau, meatloaf, other mnce dishes

Sliced into thin strips & lightly steamed they make a good substitute for spaghetti

Sliced and fried in butter

Zucchini is one of my favorites original.gif  its very versatile

Nigel Slater's zucchini, feta and dill fritters. They're absolutely delicious.

Haven't got time to find my recipe but if you Google it you should be able to find it.

Pick them before they grow too big - they taste better.  Big ones aren't as good for anything but baking.

I made Banana and Zucchini bread in muffin tins today. Its an american recipe so I used margerine instead of shortening. Before I added the banana and zucchini the mixture looked really dry but they came out yummy.

I also agree with the fritters - fetta and mint in them....yummm!

They also freeze well.

I freeze them in layers between baking paper and then defrost them and pop them into the oven to crisp them up a bit.

I serve them with a side salad or in bread rolls as veggie burgers

I love this recipe

she also has a recipe for choc chip cookie with zucchini in them that my kids liked. I prefer more decadent ones, but they were a good way to use it up

I slice them thinly and cook them in the microwave with a splash of water, a dab of butter, a sprinkle of french onion soup and lashings of parmesan.
