Cooking zucchini in a slow cooker and microwave
Of course, you know how tasty and useful fried or stewed zucchini. In this article, I propose several new recipes and alternatives to the use of zucchini.
Beauty from the garden
Recently, my girlfriend asked what kind of facials I do. One of my favorite homemade masks is crushed zucchini with kefir.

And indeed, in the matter of beauty, this vegetable is unfairly bypassed. However, masks from it are really very useful.
Recipe for soup from zucchini in a slow cooker
Having taken care of the beauty, let us return to the thoughts of how it is more tasty to feed your family. My numerous households love squash in a slow cooker, cooked in the form of soup. To make it, I chop the onions and carrots and in the "Baking" mode, fry for 3 minutes.Next I send the red lentil multi-glass, crushed zucchini and potatoes. The more vegetables you add, the thicker and more satisfying your soup will turn out. After 7 minutes I pour hot boiled water (400-500 ml) into the slow cooker and cook for 20 minutes. Then I send the whole soup into a blender and, adding 2 slices of crushed garlic and salt to taste, mash the soup. After that, I return the soup to the slow cooker and bring it to the boil in the same mode. I give 10 minutes brewed and served to the table.

The most tender pancakes
Fritters of zucchini, I will tell you in confidence, - the true weakness of my household! They are very easy and quick to prepare, so sometimes even my husband is not lazy to stand for a few minutes at the stove. For the recipe, I take a pound of potatoes and zucchini. I peel them off the peel and free the zucchini from the seeds. I rub the vegetables on a coarse grater, then skip 200 grams of hard cheese through the grater. I mix mince for pancakes with salt and pepper. I add 2 eggs and 4 tablespoons of flour. If at home there is fresh greens, you can crumble it and add to the dough. I cook pancakes as usual: I heat up frying oil in a frying pan and spread a portion of dough into a frying pan with a tablespoon. On each side I fry pancakes until golden brown.Serving this yummy hot with sour cream. Bon Appetit!
