Zucchini Butter

We are starting to get a lot of zucchini in the garden this year.  Here is a quick and tasty use for some of our squashes!!


1-2 pounds of zucchini squash

2 shallots

1 green bell pepper

1/4 cup olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

DSC01543Chop shallots and place in a saute pan with the olive oil.

DSC01545Shred the zucchini and pepper with a grater or in the food processor.  Wring out the excess liquid with a clean kitchen towel.

DSC01546Add the zucchini and cook on medium high until it becomes “jam-like”.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

DSC01547Spread on toasted french bread.  We served it on french bread with goat cheese spread on it and the zucchini butter on top.


Chop shallots and saute in the olive oil.  Shred the zucchini and green pepper.  Wring out the excess liquid with a clean kitchen towel.  Add the zucchini and pepper to the saute pan.  Cook to a “jam-like” consistency.   Add salt and pepper to taste.  Spread on toasted bread.
