Shred a bunch up and freeze it in 2 cup portions. Most recipes call for 2 cups... This will make it possible for you to enjoy zucchini recipes all year long! Like these Cheesy Zucchini Biscuits or...

How to make Cheesy Zucchini Muffins
If you have any other of my posts or recipes you will know that my favorite way to use zucchini is is muffins or cake! Simply because I have an insanely large sweet tooth! However, I love biscuits! I love bread for that matter. I actually love a lot of things, ultimately it is hard to beat a warm, tender and flaky biscuit with melting butter on it. Am I right or what? This biscuit recipe meets all those expectations!
What you will need:
- Baking powder
- Very COLD salted butter
- Shredded Zucchini, unpeeled
- Shredded cheese, I prefer co-jack in most of my recipes
Alright get that butter in the fridge or freezer and start preparing your kitchen and your mind for this recipe!
What to do:
- In a mixing bowl, combine flour and baking powder.
- Cut the very cold butter into pea size cubes and using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mix until it resembles course crumbs.
- Add the parsley, chives, zucchini and cheese. Stir to combine everything and work quickly so that butter don't melt on you!
- Add the milk and mix until the dough comes together.
- Using a scoop, drop the biscuits on parchment lined baking pan. I get 13 on a pan.
- Top each biscuit with some extra shredded cheese.
- Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes and the edges are golden brown.
- Let cool just a few minutes and serve warm!
Could it really get much better than this? A warm biscuit and BONUS... you are eating a vegetable too!
