Our family loves zucchini, and we tried this recipe last night. It made a delicious and hearty side dish we all enjoyed.
- 1⁄2 medium zucchini, shredded (1 cup)
- 8 1⁄2 ounces corn muffin mix
- 1 ounce shredded cheddar cheese (1 cup)
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- olive oil
- 12 ounces assoreted mushrooms, quartered (4 1/2 cups)
- 1 cup drained bottled roasted red pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat 12 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray; set aside.
- In mixing bowl combine zucchini, muffin mix, cheese, milk, egg, and cayenne pepper; spoon evenly into prepared muffin cups. Bake for 11-14 minutes or until golden.
- Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook 4-5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper. Place roasted peppers in blender. Cover; blend until nearly smooth.
- Arrange 3 zucchini cakes on each plate with some of the mushroom and pepper sauce.
Excellent! And so easy but kind of fancy-impressive too. I'm so looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Thank you! Reviewed for the Aussie/Kiwi Swap.
