Hi, my name is Anne and right now i have a bunch of zucchini that i am shredded mostly to freeze. My question is can i use shredded zucchini for most recipes? I mean i use shredded a lot for breads, cakes muffins but if a recipe for a casserole, or soup calls for grated or chopped will the shredded zucchini work? I am trying to use my food processor for chopping but i am getting mostly coursed pieces, and the shreddiing goes so much faster.

I've been reading a lot lately about using shredded or pureed veggies in your cookies and cakes, to make something a little less sweet and more savory, as a trail snack.

Hi Anne! Welcome to the board!

My kids love zucchini muffins (well I do too) and I love that they're healthy for them.

Karen, the zucchini hash browns sound great. Never thought of that before! Maybe with some shredded potato like a latke too.
