Kitchen Garden – zucchini dip

Over the last two weeks in the Kitchen Garden we have been harvesting our carrots and zucchinis. They have both grown beautifully. Our celery has done well and is nice and crunchy.

We have been making a delicious zucchini dip with carrots, celery and homemade crackers. Most of the children loved it!

The gardens are being prepared with new soil and mulch to sit over the summer holidays and be ready for next year’s planting. It’s fun getting our hands in the gardens and the children are enjoying it immensely.

Zucchini Dip

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium zucchini, diced
1/2 cup low-fat or non-fat plain Greek yoghurt

Directions

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add zucchini and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally until softened, about five minutes.
Allow the mixture to cool for five minutes then transfer it to a food processor or blender.
Add yoghurt, lemon juice, mint, salt and pepper. Puree until smooth.

Crackers

3 cups all-purpose (plain) flour, or a mix of all-purpose and whole grain flour
