Zucchini Recipe Round Up

Summer is upon us and that means lots of fresh vegetables. Every year one of my friends grows her own organic garden that she lets me come over and raid. I love spending time in her garden because it's beautiful, but there's something about being out in nature admiring creation that just makes me happy. 

One of the veggies my friend grows every year is zucchini. She does not grow regular zucchini she grows GIANT zucchini, I'm really not kidding it's the biggest zucchini I've ever seen- it's half the size of my leg. Everyone always thinks that because it's huge it's going to be tough and super seedy, but that's not the case at all. This year my friend gave me another giant zucchini and I had no clue what to do with it. Don't get me wrong I love zucchini, but I can only eat so much grilled zucchini. I went to my awesome blogger friends who gave me a ton of delicious suggestions, so I rounded them up to share.

What are your favorite ways to use zucchini? 


  1. This is epic Rachael! I can't wait to start trying some of them. I kind of wonder if yellow squash would work in any of these? :D

    1. I've been trying some of the recipes and I can definitely say they're delicious😋 I've been using yellow and green zucchini and haven't had a problem, so I think you'll be fine subbing yellow for free or vice versa in any recipe!
