Marrow recipes help

Postby hickybank » September 8th, 2013, 8:36 am

I have been given a Marrow but need to use it quickly as we are going on holiday in a couple of days time
I have done stuffed marrow in the past & could do it again but wondered if there is another tasty recipe out there I could try.

I found this one on the web, it looks o/k but has anyone tried it & if so was it any good

http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/stuffed_marrow_43279
I have most store room ingredients in stock so dont want to have to buy extras ingredients if I can help it.
Any suggestions would be gratfully received.

Thanks

I found this a while back and bookmarked it for the next occasion that I have a surfeit of marrows http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle ... nk.recipes :D

We're coming down with marrows, courgettes etc.. this year! The store coupboard is full of marrow chutney and marrow & ginger jam - and we've still got more marrows coming in the polytunnel.
I've made stuffed marrow a few times, but more often we make a spiced marrow dish which I'd have to look out the recipe for, but it is along the lines of a ratatouille.

Well I made the recipe I posted at the top of the page today, I have to say it is by far the best recipe for marrow I have ever tried, simply delicious

Here it is again
http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/stuffed_marrow_43279

I had no Pecorino but did use a little more Parmesan

Also rather than joining together I left it in two halves sprinkled the Parmesan on top & served it like that without cutting into slices, served with a few Jersey Royals it made a great meal

I love stuffed courgettes, but often use an Indian stuffing, topped with parmesan cheese, a kind of mix and match :roll:
I was given a large marrow by a mum at the children's hospice I volunteer at. I was thinking of make besan chilla or koftas to take back for them, with some green apple chutney, but am now thinking on the line of cup cakes, made to carrot cake recipe. Has anyone made a marrow cake? There are just too many on the web, that is why I was thinking of adapting my carrot cake one. Any suggestions?

As you say there are a lot out there, as marrow has little taste I think I would add some Raisins for taste.

River Cottage has a recipe for a Spicy Marrow cake that looks very interesting as well, here is a link to it if you have not seen it

Thanks Terry , will take a look in a minute :tu:
PS: Just had a look, it is savoury, I want to make a sweet, normal cake, that kids may eat a bit of. Also, I am not sure how adventurous parents will be, to try a savoury cake.

I made the marrow cake and a few muffins eventually, following the recipe for carrot cake. They are both quite nice, moist. I guess, it will be even better with courgettes. The pictures are here, if you can open facebook; https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 823&type=1

Hairy Bikers did a lovely looking stuffed marrow on Best Of British repeated last night. It was funnily enough the vegetarian episode, although the marrow was stuffed with a kind of Bolognese sauce with cheese, they were trying to get across the point that the vegetable element of a meal doesn't have to be the centre point of the meal without meat. Anyway, as a non meat eater it looked lovely even to me. Sorry can't find the link to the recipe. :oops:
