The Best Way to Grate Zucchini

- May 09, 2018-

1. Grating By Hand

Wash the zucchini under cold water. Pat dry with paper towels.

Place the zucchini on the cutting board. Using a sharp knife, cut the stem end off each zucchini squash.

Set the box grater in a large bowl.

Hold the cut side of the zucchini against the side of the box grater with the largest holes. Using gentle pressure, rub the zucchini up and down against the grates.

Allow the grated zucchini to fall into the bowl. If necessary, remove grated zucchini to another bowl to make room for more zucchini.

2. Grating in a Food Processor

Wash the zucchini under cold water. Pat dry with paper towels.

Place the zucchini on the cutting board. Using a sharp knife, cut the stem end off each zucchini squash.

Assemble and plug in your food processor. Insert the shredding disk or plate with the largest grating holes in the food processor.

Turn the food processor on. Insert zucchini squash one by one into the food processor's feed tube, using the feed tube pusher if necessary.

Turn the food processor off when full or when you have grated all your zucchini.
