A Compilation Of Zucchini Recipes

‘Tis the season when gardens are burgeoning with zucchini! Harvesters are finding themselves wondering what zucchini recipes to use with their prolific crop and are often sharing their abundance with anyone willing to take them.

In addition to giving them away, I have in the past processed them for freezing. A year later, I reluctantly threw every single bag away. I hadn’t been too excited about finding uses for frozen zucchini at the time (outside of adding it to pasta or a bread or muffin recipe) and eventually forgot all about them.

A collection of tested zucchini recipes including main dishes, side dishes, breads, breakfast, desserts, and ways to preserve zucchini.

I’m excited about my zucchini crop this year too because last year my zucchini plants produced pumpkins which just doesn’t taste the same (or produce as abundantly!) I’m determined to make as much use of the harvest as I can and have been scouring the internet for zucchini recipes.

With over 100 zucchini recipes to choose from, now there is no excuse to get in a rut! I’m sure you’ll find many new favorite recipes in the collection of zucchini recipes I’ve compiled!

  1. Thanks for the link Jen! Those look delicious, we’ll have to give them a try.

  2. The Zucchini recipes all look really good. We have been eating Zucchini at our house for at least 7 weeks now and I still have a big pile that I need to use or freeze.

  3. What a great round-up of zucchini options! I can’t wait to try some of these–the strings look interesting, the grill, the pizza…the pancakes, especially, are intriguing!

  4. These really sound good. It was nice of you to compile, test and photograph these recipes for us. I hope you are having a great day.

  5. These sound so good. I will definitely be giving them a try. Come on over to Crock Pot Wednesdays and check it out. diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com

  6. With so much zucchini, wondering what to do with it ?? This answers my question, thanks for sharing this great list !

  7. No Shannon, I haven’t started schooling officially yet. I just received the last of my books yesterday. Unfortunately, it’s looking like I might have to postpone the official start a few weeks anyway. It has been unseasonably cold this summer and my tomato plants are way behind. Add to that ALL of my transplants lived (which I didn’t expect them to do) giving me either 14 or 16 plants, I can’t remember right now which, and you have a recipe for a lot of canning! They aren’t getting any new blossoms so I wonder if it will be just one great harvest and then a few stragglers or not. So it all depends. I guess we’ll be having a more traditional farmer’s school year from ages past. I know! We’ll call it a Little House on the Prairie unit study- that works perfect, we’re reading Plum Creek 😀

  8. I admit I wasn’t thinking these would sound too good, but some of these look pretty yummy. Makes a girl think outside the box and that is so good because we all get in a rut sometimes without realizing it. Thanks! And how is scholling going this year? Have you started?

  9. I have to admit, the fried zucchini strings look awesome. The other recipes are good too!
