Zucchini wedges

Some might say Labor day is the end of summer.

Some will consider September 21st the last day of summer.

I’m in between. I love summer but I’m ready for fall. I’ve already started the fall baking.

Last weekend I found some beautiful zucchini at the farmers market.

We love zucchini and despite trying different zucchini recipes we seem to come back to this zucchini quiche. I’ve made it so many times even hubby knows how to make it.

Browsing through a cookie cookbook I found a recipe for zucchini wedges.  They looked and sounded pretty good so I decided to give them a try.

But of course I had to put my twist on them.

Instead of sesame seeds I added sunflower seeds.

I also added some grated Parmesan and while mixing the ingredients I realized the mixture was a little on the dry side so I mixed some flax-egg.

They turned out better than I expected.

They were soft and a little on the chewy side. I served them with a little tartar sauce but some horseradish sauce would work as well if you like it.

If i have to change something it would be the amount of salt.

I thought the grated Parmesan cheese would add enough salt and I only added 1/4 tsp.

I was wrong. Usually I’d make the recipe again before sharing in on the blog but this Saturday I have a dentist appointment so I’ll skip farmers market and I doubt they’ll have some in two weeks from now on.

Shredded carrot might be a good substitute also.
