7 Favorite Zucchini Recipes


If you grow zucchini in your garden, you know that you need lots of delicious recipes to use it all up! We collected some of the most amazing healthy and flavorful zucchini recipes from around the web for you.

There are two varieties of summer squash.  The green vegetable, we call Zucchini, and the yellow one we call crookneck.  Both are easy to grow, and both supply families with a huge harvest!  The tricky part is to pick your squash before it turns into the size of a baseball bat.  Picking them at 6 inches or less gives you a sweeter food, with less seeds.

have done zucchini boats before – they are yummy! i just made some savory zucchini pancakes and they were a BIG hit with the anti-vegetable husband!

I can’t wait to start getting zucchini from my garden so I can try some of these recipies. Our family loves zucchini muffins but I make a creamy zucchini soup that is yummy too.

We just love roasting zucchini (my 6 year old loves it, too). Sliced, with a little olive oil, minced garlic and rosemary, broiled for 5-10 minutes. Delicious!

Hooray for the letter “Z” and for zucchini. We just got our first ones in the garden and I made bread out of it, so yummy. It’s not the most healthy recipe so I’m glad to see the whole wheat one here and will try it. All the other ideas look great too. Thanks for all work you put into the alphabet food ideas. You did great with them.

Thanks! It turned out but took at least an hour to bake. Do you think I could try a 9×13″ pan next time?

Yeah, and make it into bars? It actually took me 90 minutes to make some regular zucchini bread the other day! So, ha ha.. it probably is too much batter!!
