8 Delicious Dishes Made with Zucchini

Zucchini Fritters: Grate zucchini and mix it with eggs, breadcrumbs, grated cheese, and chopped herbs. Form into patties and fry until golden brown. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or tzatziki sauce for dipping.

Zucchini Noodles (Zoodles): Use a spiralizer to create zucchini noodles, then sauté them in olive oil with garlic until tender. Top with your favorite pasta sauce, grilled chicken, or shrimp for a low-carb alternative to pasta.

Stuffed Zucchini Boats: Cut zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds to create boats. Fill with a mixture of cooked ground meat (like beef or turkey), cooked rice or quinoa, diced tomatoes, onions, and spices. Top with cheese and bake until the zucchini is tender and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Zucchini Lasagna: Substitute zucchini slices for lasagna noodles in your favorite lasagna recipe. Layer thinly sliced zucchini with marinara sauce, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, and your choice of cooked meat or vegetables. Bake until bubbly and golden brown.

Zucchini Bread: Use grated zucchini to make a moist and flavorful bread. Combine with flour, sugar, eggs, oil, cinnamon, and nuts or chocolate chips if desired. Bake until golden brown and enjoy for breakfast or as a snack.

Grilled Zucchini: Slice zucchini into rounds or lengthwise strips, then brush with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and your favorite herbs or spices. Grill until tender and slightly charred for a delicious side dish or topping for salads and sandwiches.

Zucchini Soup: Sauté diced zucchini with onions, garlic, and herbs until softened. Add vegetable or chicken broth and simmer until the flavors meld together. Blend until smooth, then stir in a splash of cream or coconut milk for added richness.

Zucchini Parmesan: Bread slices of zucchini in seasoned breadcrumbs or flour, then pan-fry until golden brown. Top with marinara sauce and melted mozzarella cheese for a twist on classic chicken or eggplant Parmesan.
