Wrapping up another incredible #AKZucchiniWeek aka the BEST week of summer. I’ve loved seeing all of your zucchini creations, and am so excited to share the finale with the ultimate zucchini roundup.

Reasons to cook & bake with zucchini

As you can probably guess, zucchini is one of my absolute fav veggies to cook and bake with because:

  • It adds a boost of fiber & vitamin C to any recipe
  • It can take on any flavors of spices you’re working with
  • It adds the perfect amount of moisture to every recipe, which means you likely won’t need extra oil or butter in the recipes!

Tips for baking with zucchini

  • Use the small side of your grater so that you get little shreds of zucchini.
  • Squeeze out your zucchini shreds as much as possible to get all of the excess liquid out.
  • Measure the shreds before you squeeze the moisture out.
  • Feel free to shred a bunch of zucchini and freeze it for later! Follow my tips and tricks here.

In this roundup you’ll find everything from my go-to muffins and brownies to deliciously savory burgers, pastas, meatballs and more.

Pick up some extra zucchini from your local farmer’s market (or your own garden!) and get these delicious, healthy zucchini recipes on your table ASAP. If you try any of these zucchini recipes be sure to leave a comment and let me know how you liked it. Enjoy, xo!
