Zucchini-Garlic Bread
Zucchini and Garlic Bread is a unique and nutritious quick yeast bread that can be shaped like focaccia or even used as a pizza crust. This bread is especially delicious when served with cheese. The grated zucchini adds moisture that feeds the yeast. If you have left-over wort from bottling your home-made beer, you can use it instead of milk to add flavor and B vitamins!

½ cup non-fat evaporated milk

½ cup water

1/4 lb (½ cup) butter

2-4 tbls honey (for a crunchy golden crust)

1 cup flour

2 1/4 tsp quick-rise yeast

1 tsp (or more) salt


2 cups flour

1 cup (or half a large zucchini) grated zucchini

2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

1 tbls (or more) chopped herbs (rosemary, basil, thyme, parsley, fennel [toasted], savoury, oregano, sage, dill)

1 lrg glass bowl

2 medium bowls

Warm milk (or wort), water, butter, & honey in microwave in a glass bowl on medium for 3-4 minutes to 120-130° F. Mix 1 cup flour, yeast, and salt in a bowl & add to warm liquid mixture; beat well.

Thoroughly mix 2 cups flour, zucchini, garlic & herbs in a bowl & add to above mixture. Mix with wooden spoon, then turn out on floured board. Knead, adding additional flour for 5-10 minutes.

Allow dough to rest on the board covered with a thin cloth for 10 minutes.

Punch down and knead a bit, then spread on a round non-stick pizza pan for bread or extra large cookie sheet for pizza crust. Pour a teaspoon of olive oil into the palm of your hand and use it to grease your fingertips; spread the dough evenly over the pan.

Allow dough to rest for another 10 minutes, covered with a tea towel. Use a wooden skewer or toothpick to prick dough in a dozen places. Place pan in an oven preheated to 375° F (325° F in a hot oven).

Bake with convection fan for 20-30 minutes, or until crust is a rich deep brown and loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.

Zucchini is extremely nutritious and adds moisture to the bread that prevents premature drying out.

Garlic adds flavour & nutrition and works well served with cheese.
