Hmmm... zucchini. Actually, my favorite zucchini recipe is a zucchini bread.

That seems to be a persistent zucchini plant, I've only ever seen them growing along the ground!

Thank you all for stopping by, much appreciated. This photo is taken at my father’s friend, he likes to play with plants in his garden so he hung up zucchinis on the tree and they grew longer.

Passante - recipe for zucchini pastry:

7 big spoons of corn meal (I like coarse corn meal)
2 big spoons of white meal-powder
1 small spoon of salt
2 eggs
1 big spoon of olive oil
1/2 glass of milk
200 ml = 7 oz of yogurt
1/4 small spoon of baking powder
3-4 small zucchinis or 1 if its bigger shred

After you shredded zucchinis mix all the ingredients together. Use bigger tin and spread some olive oil all over it, heat it on the highest temperature and when it's hot take it out, pour the ingredients (it shouldn't be too thick) and bake it till it's golden.

Hope some of you will find this recipe delicious.

Bon Appétit
