‘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.
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!

I’m always looking for new zucchini recipes. How are you preparing zucchini for your family this summer? If you happen to have a great recipe or even a tasty zucchini link up your sleeve, do share!
My husband brought home a bag of zucchini from a friend–now I have options! Thanks!
I have to admit, the fried zucchini strings look awesome. The other recipes are good too!
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?
Garden pasta saute looks so delicious!
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 😀
With so much zucchini, wondering what to do with it ?? This answers my question, thanks for sharing this great list !
I’ve never tried the fried zucchini strings but that looks like fun!
yummy! I’m going to highlight a bunch of zucchini recipes tomorrow – and Tammy (https://www.tammysrecipes.com/taxonomy/term/153) is hosting a zucchini carnival for her in-season swap tomorrow, so you can find other recipes there!
Well isn’t that timely! Thanks for the reminder:)
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
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.

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!
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.
Doing GAPS, I eat zucchini and yellow squash A LOT. I just tried out something new last night – and it was really good. My post can be found here: https://eatingmyvegetables.blogspot.com/2010/06/grilled-zucchini-boats.html
Thanks for the link Jen! Those look delicious, we’ll have to give them a try.

What a great list! Thanks for sharing my recipe! Sharing now!
Thanks for this fantastic roundup! I always get stuck not knowing what to do with all my zucchini. I usually end up shredding and freezing most of it to make muffins and our favorite Chocolate Zucchini Cake which I will try and link here. This is my family’s ultimate favorite cake and has been for 2 generations already!
