Zucchini Recipes

Because zucchini have more delicate skin, there’s no need to peel them before adding them to a recipe.

You can also transform them into “zoodles,” or zucchini noodles, like in this Zucchini Tomato Basil Salad with Lemon Basil Vinaigrette. Use a spiralizer or vegetable peeler to make spaghetti – or lasagna-inspired zucchini noodles.

And I certainly can’t overlook my personal favorite way to enjoy zucchini — in quick breads and muffins, like these Zucchini Apple Spice Muffins! Shredded zucchini adds moisture to any quick bread, but you can’t taste it whatsoever in the final product.

I sometimes add shredded zucchini to mac and cheese or other comforting dishes to amp up my kids’ vegetable intake for the day without them noticing.
