We've been tossing them in the food dehydrator with various spices - just did a curry batch and a orange-teryaki batch. We are considering the curry chips for yule gifts later in the year.

We are still picking faster than we can process.

I just made this for my tea only I've already had rice twice this week so used macaroni instead! I also topped it with sliced tomatoes and it was delish! Very well-received by the other half! Thanks for posting the recipe :icon_smile:



oooh, pasta, I hadn't thought of that, the kids would go for that. Glad you liked it!

I've been making batchs of Courgette curry and freezing down.
www.deliaonline.com/community/yourrecip ... curry.html . But have doubled up on all the spices cos it was a bit on the bland side at first.

We're having courgette and pasta tonight, but I must have a go at the bread and chocolate cake.

The bread is fantastic, have yet to convince anyone to eat the cake though.

Oh what a shame. You'll just have to eat it all yourself. :mrgreen:

Which recipe have you made, plain or chocolate?

I've just turned a week's worth into soup so I need to wait for a few more courgettes but I'm going to try the BBC choc one. :thumbright:

I have just made and eaten (two portions :oops: ) of this gorgeous creamy courgette lasagne :

http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/4716 ... te-lasagne

It is one of those recipes that you can play around with. Today I diced the courgettes to give more crunch and used mozarella cheese instead of ricotta. Delicious :thumbleft:

Oh that looks easy (especially with cheat's tom sauce :lol: ) I love lasagne but never make it these days cos it's such a faff with having to make a tomato sauce AND a white sauce that I can't be bothered, by the time I get to making the bolognese type of sauce I might as well just eat spag bol! :mrgreen:

I'm making the bbc choc courgette cake today, will let you know how it went - it's for my French neighbours who are coming to 'tea' - we've been teaching them how to say things like 'a nice cup of tea' and 'bollocks'. :lol: I know that makes no sense whatsoever :lol: but my English neighbour gives them English lessons so we being rather wicked keep teaching them naughty things to say in class, like 'dunno' and 'gonna' - it was a bit hard to explain the meaning of bollocks in the rubbish sense - one said "It's a bollocks cat, is that right?". Ummm not quite. :mrgreen:

Reminds me of my Thai daughter-in-law who has quite a good command of English, but learned from more unusual sources! I tried to explain what a "lie" was and eventually, realsiation dawned and she said " oh you mean bullshit!!" :lol: :lol:
Quite off topic but as compensation I will try making the chocolate cake at the weekend! :iconbiggrin:

Hahahaha! Hilarious!

I made zucchini boats stuffed with hamburger and bread last night, basically like a meatloaf stuffed into a hollowed out zucchini with parm sprinkled on top, yum!
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
