I seldom said my bake is delicious but this one I have to say it loud and clear that it is delicious and kids has been asking for more which is rather unusual and this is prepared using an ingredients that I am totally not familiar with .
Zucchini, a vegetable that starts with Z and has 2 Cs in the spelling is so alien to me. I can remember this name because of the unusual spelling but it is not something common in the region when I was a kid. I only saw supermarket start selling zucchini in recent years.. I never bought as I do not know how to prepare at all. It looks like cucumber but I was told that it is not and cannot be eaten raw..
My neighbours saw that some zucchinis were sold very cheaply at the wet market , she said she can’t resist and bought it . Since she does not how to cook and she therefore decided to give it to me. She works at a wet market and when she saw good deal, she will buy and shared out with my families ..
The first things that come across my mind is to prepare zucchini slices. I saw member of Facebook Group always prepared this and that sparks my interest of getting rid off the zucchini by trying a recipe i randomly picked from the internet though i have amended here and there to suit local context.
Yes, the slices really suits our taste buds. To be frank, the zucchinis are rather redundant as it does not have any aroma on its own. However, it does provide some flavour and definitely another way of consuming the vegetables. The slice is more of a bacon/ham flavoured cheesy slices..
