If you planted your zucchini at the beginning of spring, it is likely starting to sprout up some lovely green squash right about now. If your plant is anything like mine, it has grown larger than you would have ever imagined and you may be finding yourself with an abundance of zucchini and wondering just what in the world to do with it all! We are giving some of ours away to friends and neighbors but I have also found some lovely new zucchini recipes your family will be sure to love.
As our zucchini plant grew, I quickly became aware that I was going to have to find some new recipes to try out. I was so excited to find so many amazing and unique zucchini recipes since the family was really getting bored with sauted and grilled zucchini as a side. We made stir fry, side dishes, soups, bread and then I found all of these terrific zucchini recipes to try!
If you are looking to add a little interest to your zucchini side dishes and appetizers try out the Cheesy Zucchini and Rice, Fried Zucchini with Cool Dill Dip, Zucchini Breadsticks, or Zucchini Pizza Bites.
And don’t worry, we’ve got dessert covered too! You could go with a tried and true zucchini bread style recipe with these Carrot and Zucchini Bars or if you’re daring you must make this Zucchini Chocolate Cake!
So what do you think? Don’t those sound delicious? And so much more exciting that your plain old zucchini wedges!
Do you have a favorite way to eat zucchini or a must try recipe? I’d love to hear about it!
