As such we spent much of the late summer and fall compelled to come up with meals that could accommodate large quantities of summer squash. One of them, which we were quite pleased with, was scalloped zucchini. We made it just like we would scalloped potatoes, but with summer squash instead.
|We ate the leftovers with some fried potatoes for breakfast the next day.|
1-3 large zucchini, very thinly sliced
2 T olive oil
1/3 C flour
2 1/4 C soymilk
1/4 t ground black pepper
1/2 t garlic powder
1-2 t dried herbs (thyme, rosemary, sage, etc)
1/2 C nutritional yeast
dash of paprika
dash of red pepper flakes
bread crumbs, to top
Combine the oil and flour in a saucepan making a roux.
Add in milk, pepper, garlic powder, herbs, paprika, and red pepper flakes and stir well.
Add in nutritional yeast and stir until thickened into a creamy, sort of cheesy looking sauce.
Pour a little of the sauce into the bottom of a baking pan.
Layer slices of zucchini so that they overlap, occasionally adding some sauce between layers.
Finish with a layer of sauce on top.
Sprinkle bread crumbs to cover the whole dish.
Bake at 375 degrees F until zucchini can be easily pierced with a fork.
We've only got one fresh, great big, humdinger of a zucchini left to use up. Of course, there is loads of shredded zucchini in the freezer still.
