Zucchini Pizza Crust

zucchini

Cheap and plentiful vegetable in Thailand

I haven’t received any cauliflower from my CSA to make pizza crust, so I tried out this recipe instead. It wasn’t bad!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups zucchini, shredded
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded (I used more than this because I forgot the parmesan)
  • 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • 1 egg or 1/4 cup soft tofu
  • 1 teaspoon oregano or Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup rice flour if you want thicker (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 4500 degrees Fahrenheit or 230 degrees Celsius.
  2. (optional) Microwave the zucchini on high for 6 minutes, let cool, place it in a tea towel and squeeze as much moisture out as you can.
  3. Mix the zucchini, mozzarella, parmesan, egg or tofu, oregano, salt and pepper, press the mixture onto a baking mat or parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake in a preheated  oven until lightly golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. After crust is cooled, add: pizza sauce, baby bella mushrooms, shredded carrot, bell pepper and top with a little mozzarella. Add other veggies that you like too.

Gluten Free Vegan Zucchini and Banana Bread

9311490732_4b8ddce536_z

I made this last week for some vegan friends who were visiting Bangkok. They awoke to the luscious aroma of all spice and cinnamon. I followed the recipe, except didn’t use apple sauce, instead substituted another banana.

To make it gluten free for me, I used Bob’s Red Mills All Purpose Baking Mix, not flour. And because I don’t like nuts or raisins in bread, I omitted those also. The end result, however, was delish! We ate all the bread that day. Never have I had anything so moist and flavourful! Highly recommend this for all GF and Veg out there!
