Genius recipe for making a healthy buttery spread with your summer zucchini!
  • Makes about 2 cups
  • 2 pounds zucchini*
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  1. Peel zucchini on the large holes of a box grater. Stir in salt. Place in a strainer over a larger bowl and let sit for about 20 minutes to drain. Discard liquid in bowl. Place zucchini in a thin kitchen towel and wring out over the sink to remove as much water as possible.
  2. Heat a skillet to medium heat. Add olive oil and squeezed zucchini and let cook, stirring occasionally until zucchini is very soft and most of liquid is removed.
  3. Place cooked zucchini in a blender and blend until very smooth. Taste and add a little more salt to taste. Chill in refrigerator until cold. Serve cold or at room temperature.
  4. NOTE: You can use peeled or unpeeled zucchini for this recipe. If you want a more neutral taste, use peeled zucchini. Leaving the peels on will result in a more grassy, vegetable taste.
