15 Zucchini Recipes

A delicious collection of zucchini recipes from food bloggers | gimmesomeoven.com

Hey there, it’s Hayley with this week’s roundup!

Where did summer go? I say it every year, but it’s like I look down for a second, look back up, and all of a sudden it’s August. It always just seems to slip right through my fingertips. Before I know it, I’ll be swapping out sandals for boots, trading rosé for red wine, and greeting my hibernating scarf collection.

It’s been a busy summer for us though — one that was full of travel, house repairs and a recent move! We stayed in town, but that didn’t make it any smaller of an ordeal of course. One of the most difficult things, hands down has been having our kitchen out of commission. We’ve succumbed to a steady takeout diet (which was fun at first), but after two weeks without a kitchen, tonight we are finally going to cook, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

I plan on venturing out to the farmers’ market to shop beforehand, and imagine I’ll be like a giddy kid on Christmas morning. But the number one thing on my list to buy this time of year is always the same — zucchini!  It’s easily one of my favorite summer veggies.  Growing up, my mom would slice zucchini into medallions and stir fry them in teriyaki sauce and sesame seeds, which my my sister and I loved (and still do). But after perusing the web for further zucchini inspiration this week, I have bookmarked so many new recipes to try.  So zucchini, I’ve got big plans for you!

If you have extra zucchini on hand this August, we have big plans and ideas for you to try too!  From two different kinds of healthy zucchini muffins, to some insanely good carb-free noodles, to a zucchini cake, pancakes, fries, meatballs and more, this roundup has some darn good recipes to put that zucchini to use. So enjoy that beautiful green squash while you still can, and savor the rest of this fleeting summer!

  8. Until recently, I never knew you could make so many wonderful dishes with zucchini. Even pizza! The most exotic recipe I had ever had was the Zucchini Fritte (zucchini fries) served with roasted garlic Aioli at Carrabba’s. They are so delicious. I am very happy you have posted a zucchini fries recipe which I can’t wait to try along with the pesto dipping sauce. I love pesto, and anything fried is good, correct? Thanks again!

    • Thanks Lizbet, we’re happy to hear you enjoyed the roundup, and that you love zucchini just as much as we do! (Also, yes, anything fried is A-okay with us!) ;)
