Sauteed Zucchini and Grits with Spirulina and Brewer's Yeast

In the quest to continue using all the zucchini that keeps appearing on my doorstep, another squashy concoction was on the dinner table tonight.

All you’ll need is:

1 medium zucchini, chopped

1 cup water

3 Tablespoons quick grits

1 Tablespoon butter

dash of spirulina powder and Brewer’s Yeast

dash of salt and pepper

Boil water with a pinch of salt. Add grits and cover pot. cook over low heat stirring occasionally until thickened.

Add butter to skillet and when melted, add zucchini. Sautee until golden and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Dish grits and zucchini and sprinkle with spirulina and brewer’s yeast. Enjoy!

Oh Zucchini. How I love thee.

I pay homage to the delicious veggie by adapting the recipe of my dear friend Rosie and her family recipe.

Fried Zucchini

2 medium zucchinis

1 egg

1 cup panko breadcrumbs

1/4 cup Brewers/Nutritional yeast

1 tesaspoon garlic powder

salt and pepper

peanut oil

Pour oil into a heavy skillet until it just covers the bottom of the pan.Turn on to medium heat.

Slice veggie into rounds about 1/4 inch thick.

Crack egg into small bowl and whisk until uniform in color.

Pour panko, yeast, garlic powder, salt and pepper into a shallow dish and stir to combine.

You should have a much cleaner version of this setup :)

You should have a much cleaner version of this setup - the egg's in the little yellow bowl!

Take some of the zucchini slices and submerge them in the egg.

Taking them one by one out of the egg, toss them in the seasoned panko to coat.

I like to use a fork to avoid the dreaded "CLUB HAND!!!"

Place the breaded slices into the hot oil and fry until golden, flip and fry until other side is golden as well.

Doesn't it just look delish!?

When they are done, drain on paper towels and let them cool until devourable.

Notice the golden crust, bright zucchini and oil dripping down my finger – oh delishiousness.

Enjoy 🙂
