Nope! The peel on the outside of a zucchini is a lovely dark green and very tender. I just wash the zucchini, cut off the ends and then grate the entire vegetable. It’s very simple to do and I love seeing the tiny flecks of green in the food after it’s cooked.

Should I squeeze excess water out of my zucchini before making zucchini recipes?

YES. Zucchini naturally has a lot of water in it. that becomes quite clear after grating it, if you simply leave it to rest for 5-10 minutes, the water will begin accumulating in the bowl! I like to squeeze as much out as possible before making it into zucchini recipes. Interestingly enough, each zucchini is a bit different when it comes to water content. I find zucchini straight from my garden has quite a bit more water in it than zucchini from the grocery store. Along the same lines, if you grow a mammoth zucchini in the garden, it’s going to have a ton of water! So let it sit, then drain and squeeze out the excess water.

  2. Assemble your ingredients. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, soda, nutmeg and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  3. Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl. {I always sneak in a few spoonfuls of flax!}
  4. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and beat well.

Do these dark, super-moist fudge brownies look like they’re made with zucchini? No, they don’t — and trust us, no one enjoying them will be the wiser. Rather than the usual method of shredding zucchini for your sweet treats, this time we purée it — so that all it adds is moisture, not any unwelcome “stringy” texture. Bonus: For extra fiber and nutrition, make these brownies with whole wheat flour; its “wheaty” flavor will disappear amidst all of that chocolate!
