You know that zucchini in your fridge? The one you pretend not to see when you peruse the fridge for a snack around 10 p.m. every night? Well, get it out. Grate it up. Mix it with some other stuff. Make this Honey Cardamom Zucchini Bread. And never look back.
I was pretty skeptical when I learned of zucchini bread as a kid. I mean, you’re telling me that something with zucchini in it tastes as good as a sweet, moist, perfect-with-a-little-butter-on-top muffin? No way, I concluded.
I was wrong. I stuck with my good ‘ole banana bread until I became an adult and realized, hey, I can really use some extra veggies wherever I can get them. And that doesn’t exclude dessert-like breakfast (lunch, and dinner?) bread. Especially not when it’s Honey Cardamom Zucchini Bread.
This Honey Cardamom Zucchini Bread, fattened up with olive oil and sweetened with local raw honey, is warmed with spices like cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger. It’s undoubtedly the best way to use your neglected Tucson CSA zucchini. And it will surely trick your kids into eating veggies for breakfast (just don’t tell them what’s in it!).
