The whole winter and spring I’m looking forward to the summer vegetables, and fruit of course! But then they are there, zucchini. What to do with them? Additionally we have two plants on our patch this year. That means: the zucchini glut had begun! First tip for those of you having own zucchini plants, too: harvest the zucchini as long as they are small. So you avoid the problem of having to process giant zucchini. Also the young zucchini taste a lot better. They almost have no seeds or no seeds at all. And they are eaten a lot faster. There are a lot of them growing back, anyway. So this year I will blog some more recipes for vegetables, that are fast growing in the garden and yield a lot. So you know what to do with it. Because we want to know, too. Yeah, our own vegetables growing faster and faster!

Puff Pastry Turnovers with Zucchini and Feta

These puff pastry turnovers were the result from the question “what will I do with that?” one evening. Just few ingredients, which I always have at home and in no time these treats were born. Grated zucchini with creamy feta, seasoned with thyme and mint. A dream combination. The turnovers are perfect for a BBQ, for a picnic, the next party, as a gift or as a accompaniment for some bread and salad for dinner or lunch. You see, there is no excuse not no make these turnovers.

    Am WE für eine Nachbarschaftsparty gemacht – es ging wirklich super easy, schnell und war sehr lecker. Den Zucchini-Feta-Mix habe ich vorher 30 min im Sieb abtropfen lassen, da doch eine Menge Wasser entsteht. Rezept kommt auf die Partyliste. Danke und LG, Conny

    Hej – tolles Rezept!
    Hast du die auch schon mal vorbereitend gemacht, für eine Party?
    Wie lang können die wohl liegen.. eingefroren ist glaub ich nicht so passend, da die Zucchini bestimmt wässert oder? LG
