Leftover squash and zucchini

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I catered a large stir fry for 125 people this last week and have a ton of squash and zucchini left over. I need to cook it into a soup, stew or casserole so I don't lose all this product. Any thoughts?

FYI, its already sliced up, so it's not going to stay fresh long. Also, I have a lot of broccoli too...

Thanks again.

I've made a roasted butternut squash soup before, puréed and creamy. Maybe I can head in this directions?

Zucchini and/or squash gratin

Minestrone

Deep fried with a nice crunchy cornmeal coating and a marinara sauce for dipping

A chunky puree with maybe some white beans made into a dip for Crudités

the puree made into pasta sheets with more of the veg in a chunky puree,spices and some toasted pine nuts as the condiment

I love making kourkouto, it's kind of like a greek crustless zucchini pie, hard to describe but this is a great recipe, I have made it myself and can attest to how good it is!

You can also make fritters.  You can chop it really finely, mix it with some raw rice, onion, mint and parsley, lots of salt and pepper and stuff it into peppers and tomatoes.
