Subbing Zucchini in a recipe

donna_loomisJune 10, 2014

We still have a few bags of grated zucchini in the freezer from last year's garden. DH made a really rich dark chocolate cake using some last week. I would be silly not to expect an excess of squash this year as well, which got me thinking that I should really try to come up with more uses for it.

Last night I made my beloved Som Tum (Green Papaya Salad) and subbed zucchini for the green papaya. Guess what? I love it! Since the green papaya really doesn't have much in the way of flavor, being merely a vehicle for the rest of the ingredients, I figured it was a good bet the zucchini would do the same, and I was right.

Just thought I'd share in case anyone else might want one more use for excess zucchini.

That salad sounds great with zucchini, you could also use some of it in your stirfries.
