24 Zucchini Recipes

There is a lot of green in my life, these days.  The garden is growing and thriving for the most part, but I have way more zucchini and cucumbers than I know what to do with.  This weekend my sister-in-law and I shredded and sliced zucchini and then par boiled it so we could freeze it for future use.  And yet freezing the zucchini doesn’t change the fact that I need to eventually cook it, and in more than a few basic ways if I don’t want my family to get weary of seeing it on their plate.  Knowing this I set off to search the internet for some unusual zucchini recipes. Since I figured that I may not be the only person suffering with a surplus of zucchini I decided to share those recipes with you.

But before I go down the yellow brick road of zucchini recipes let me share some tips and images from my garden.

While everything is growing well without the use of any insecticide or fungicide, I didn’t make my rows quite as wide as I should have.  Walking down the rows without stepping on a leaf, squash, vine or beet is very difficult.  Tip #1: Remember to make the garden rows wider than 8 inches next year.  Yeah I know…you wouldn’t think you would have to tell me this, but evidently I had to learn the hard way.


Love how the squash hold their bright yellow blooms, but next year I will plant more butternut and fewer summer squash.  Tip #2:  Summer squash requires a lot of time to preserve in order to eat it later.  Butternut, on the other hand, is simply picked and left to rest in a basket until you are ready to eat it.

And now the zucchini dish line-up.  Keep  in mind that more than likely you can substitute any summer squash for zucchini, in these recipes.
