Zucchini Omlette and Healthy Zucchini Pear Bread

Here’s two zucchini recipes for all you zucchini lovers out there!

Zucchini Omelette

Zucchini Omlette

2 eggs

2 T. flour

2 T. milk

2/3 cup zucchini, shredded

1 mushroom, diced

2 T. onion, diced

2 T. bell pepper, diced

2 T. shredded cheddar cheese

Salt, peper, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, and cumin to taste =)

In a blender, combine egg, flour, milk and a little salt and pepper until frothy. In a small greased skillet, saute vegetables and spices (to taste) until vegetables are tender. Remove from skillet; pour in egg mixture. Cook over low heat, covered, until eggs are solid. Put the vegetables on half the omlette; sprinkle with cheese. Fold over and serve. Yield: 1 serving

This is a creation of mine from the other night; it was yummy!

Zucchini Pear Bread

Zucchini Pear Bread (2)

2 cups pears, diced

1 cup zucchini, shredded

1 cup oil

1 cup honey

3 eggs

1 T. vanilla

3 cups whole wheat pastry flour

2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. cinnamon

2/3 cup pecans, chopped

In a large bowl, combine pears, zucchini, oil, honey, eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and pecans. Add to wet ingredients. Pour into two greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Yield: 2 loaves

We had an abundance of pears as well as zucchini, so I adjusted this recipe to make it healthier. We tried it tonight and it was delicious! The pears and pecans added a nice touch.

So…anybody have any zucchini recipes you want to donate? =) Hopefully, I can post them here by August 23rd if you can get them to me before that! Just e-mail me at seamstressrach@gmail.com or leave a comment with a link to your site! Thanks all!

Note: I am submitting these recipes to www.tammysrecipes.com for the In-Season Recipe Swap featuring summer squash!
