Zucchini…. I love this vegetable! One day they look ready to be picked, and if you miss a couple of days, they become humongous! When you have them in abundance, make these to have with homemade soup, for the kids' lunchboxes, or perfect for breaky on the run.
You can swap or add a few ingredients to the recipe like your favourite cheese, spinach, corn, ham, jalapeno peppers, etc… Yum.
I usually make two batches and freeze some for quick snacks during the week. A few seconds in the microwave, and they are as good as freshly made.
