Yes, you now have a purpose for all that zucchini that is growing like crazy in the garden. Make zucchini powder/flour. I call it flour because it is ground up to the texture of a multigrain flour. It can be used like a gluten-free flour. AMAZING.
Cut up your zucchini and dehydrate the disks until they are bone dry. Add the dried zucchini to your blender and blend until a fine powder is formed. I am using the dry canister for the Vitamix. I am sure that any food processor/blender would do just fine. This isn't a hard substance to grind.
And you are all done! This is a super low carb vegetable flour. I estimate that it will be about one gram of carbohydrates for one tablespoon. That is what I arrived at after estimating how many mid sized zucchinis I dehydrated divided by how many tablespoons of powder I came up with.
Another note, you need lots and lots of zucchini to make a good quantity of zucchini powder. This jar is full of powder from at least 5 medium sized zucchini. WOW. So it is only cost effective if you are growing your own, and growing lots.
Well, how do you use this flour?????
You can add this flour to muffin recipes, pancake batters, and zucchini breads of course. Simply replace 1/4 cup flour for the zucchini powder.
Add this powder to smoothies, stews, and soups to thicken them.
It has a bland taste that is easily disguised in the recipe.
