Zucchini Spread with Dukkah

I adapted this recipe from Foof52's Zucchini Butter. I was so excited to try this recipe as a new way to use zucchini. Mine is yellow because I love those yellow zucchini with the green tops, but any zucchini will work. It is easy to make, low in calories and makes a great addition to my Shabbat salatim for the Summer. I topped it here with Dukkah, but I also think it would be great on top of a thin layer of Ricotta.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 25 min


about 1 cup


  • 2 pounds zucchini, any variety
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • 2 minced shallots, garlic, or combination of both
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Coarsely grate the zucchini by hand or with a food processor.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil or butter. Sauté the shallots or garlic until fragrant. Add the zucchini and stir. Cook and stir over medium to medium-high heat until the zucchini reaches a spreadable consistency, about 15 -20 minutes. If your mixture gets dry and you begin to burn the bottom, turn the flame down and add a bit of water or white wine, and keep stirring.  Eventually the zucchini turns into a nice spreadable salad.
  3. Serve on it’s own for spreading on bread, challah or anything or top with homemade Dukkah.

    I presume the zucchini is peeled before it is grated? Thanks.
