Miso Glazed Zucchini or Marrow

Miso glazed Zucchini 2

It’s that time of year in my garden where one moment I have nice small Zucchinis growing and the next moment I look I have huge marrows. I am always trying to find new ways to use up these monsters and come up with this recipe last night.

Miso is a great product as it is fermented and adds good pro- biotic bacteria to our diets. It has been used in traditional Japanese cooking for hundreds of years.

There is a great Nelson company making their own miso from scratch, check them out…
