Zucchinis are ready in the garden and when it’s that time of the year, then there are zucchinis everywhere. So, I personally can eat a lot of them only when I can cook the zucchini different ways. Otherwise, I can eat it for a week and then I would like to eat something else. But when I can get local seasonal zucchinis, then I just have to eat them as much as I can. One of my favorites ways to cook zucchini is crumbed! It’s like a salty comfort food that I just can’t skip once it’s ready. The recipe itself is super easy and you don’t have to follow the recipe as much. All you need are the ingredients and then just enjoy the process of making them and of course, the best time is always the eating part.
