ZUCCHINI JUICE RECIPES

POST #788
Here are some zucchini juice recipes from 877MyJuicer.com

PINEAPPLE-ZUCCHINI JUICE
If you’re worried that you won’t like the taste of the zucchini, try this flavorful juice. The mild-mannered zucchini is masked by the bright pineapple and vibrant parsley. This is a perfect juice to have in hand while soaking up a few last sunny afternoons.

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1 handful spinach or romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 2-4 stalks celery
  • 1+ cup pineapple (the more you use, the sweeter the juice will be)

Feed all ingredients through your juicer. Sip and enjoy immediately!

CLASSIC GREEN JUICE WITH  A TWIST
Try adding a zucchini to this standard juice recipe (or try it with your own favorite mix) to use of some of that summer excess!

  • 2 cups greens (preferably kale and spinach)
  • 2 pears
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 inch peeled ginger
  • lemon to taste

Juice as usual. Revel in the fact that you have one less zucchini to use. 

NIBBLES – what I did with the leftovers

Last night, I made spaghetti with zucchini pasta and a tomato/onion/red bell pepper/almond sauce. My sauce came out thick, but I like it that way.

After dinner, I looked at the leftover sauce and just knew I was not oing to eat it this week.  I had a leftover zucchini so I sliced it on the mandonline and then put a spoonful of sauce on each slice and everything in the dehydrator overnight.  This morning, I was amazed at how small the zucchini slices had shrunk, but I was very pleased with the taste of these little bites. My room-mate says they taste like pizza.  Next time, though, I am going to slice the zucchini thicker.

WHAT TO DO WITH ZUCCHINI

I love zucchini! Don’t get me wrong! There is, however, a limit to how many times I can eat zucchini pasta in a 7 day period, and how many zucchinis I can put in green smoothies. Hence, I felt it necessary to explore new things to do with zucchini.

Here is a recipe for beanless zucchini based on something I found in Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen, by Ani Phyo.

BEAN-LESS ZUCCHINI-KALAMATA OLIVE HUMMUS
1/4 C sunflower seeds, soaked 6 hours
1 C zucchini, chopped
2 cloves garlic
juice of 1/4 lemon
1/8 C olive oil
1/4 C tahini
1/8 C kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
generous sprinkle cayenne pepper

Process all ingredients in a food processor until smooth hummus consistency.

This turned out pretty good. (I am not crazy about lemon, so I may eliminate it, or else only put a teaspoonful in next time)
It is a good dip for vegetables and it works well on my crackers, also.

I am imagining including red bell pepper the next time I make it.

I am also picturing how to dehydrate this if I  don’t  finish it in 2 or  3 days.
