I Like a Good Marrow

Giant Marrow Recipe
Who knew?  It tastes just like zucchini except it has seeds and these can be removed so then you just have a GIANT zucchini with a concave middle. Sweet.

We returned from our camping trip to find two giant marrow chilling in the vege patch.

What to do, what to do?  I have never cooked a marrow, or even investigated what to do with them.  The time for marrow was upon us.

So, I cut it in half length-ways and scooped out the seeds, leaving lots of marrowy goodness.  Then I emptied a drained can of chickpeas, a drained can of whole kernel corn, diced capsicum from the garden and a tonne of cherry toms from the garden into a pan with some EVOO and sauteed til goldenish.

Then I stirred in some feta, olives and jalapenos seasoned with ground pepper and rock salt and baked em.

This was sooooo good, I can’t wait to try it out on the next big boy!

BUT, I made a shitload of stuffing.

What to do, what to do?

The next night, I made fritters with the stuffing mix.  I added some flour, egg and milk and I was off.

Let me tell you, chickpea, corn, capsicum, tomato, feta, olive and jalapeno fritters are just about the best things ever.  Ethan can vouch for this I swear.

So, we have learnt from this exercise that 2 cans of vege plus some fresh can feed you many times over and that I MUST use leftovers.  It’s a compulsion of mine.  Enjoy!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
