Zucchini Recipe Roundup

Happy Fall Ya’ll! Since we are transitioning from Summer to Autumn, I thought a zucchini recipe roundup would be perfect! If you’re unfamiliar with a recipe roundup, it’s basically a montage of the greatest hits feature a specific ingredient or style of food. For example, if you’re craving pizza for seven weeks in a row, or you want to find a dozen foil recipes for an epic camping trip, a recipe roundup is a great place to start.
My sister grew some monstrous squash in her garden this year, and she was sweet enough to gift several to me over the summer. Here are the recipes I made to feature the vitamin and fiber-rich vegetable we call zucchini. 💚

1. Vegan Smoothie Bowls with Frozen Zucchini

Want to know the secret to make the creamiest, thickest smoothie bowls? Zucchini! Sliced up a few cups of zucchini and steam them for ten minutes. After they cool, put them in a ziplock bag or airtight container and freeze them. When added to a blender, they create a rich and creamy texture, without adding any veggie taste.

2. Mediterranean Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Zucchini boats are essentially stuffed zucchini halves, and there are more customization possibilities than there are settings in an Android phone. These keep well in the fridge and can be reheated for meals throughout the week, making it perfect for healthy and delicious meal prep!

3. Shrimp and Zucchini Curry

This Japanese-style curry is rich, slightly sweet and so delicious. Packed with protein from baby shrimp (which cook in just a few minutes) and nutrients from zucchini, sweet potatoes and carrots, this is a simple and nourishing meal.

4. Zucchini Crust Margherita Pizza

5. Zucchini Fritter Tacos

Ready to level up your Taco Tuesday game? Fried and flavorful zucchini fritters stuffed into corn taco shells alongside your usual suspects (corn, black beans and hot sauce) really hit the spot!

6. Chickpea and Lentil Stew

Based on the classic German recipe Kichererbsenemüse, this stew is cozy and nourishing. It’s perfect this time of year, as nights become longer and the wind begins to get that chill of Autumn in the air. And best of all, it comes together in under one hour.

7. Caramel Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

That’s right, we are not leaving dessert out! Shredded zucchini can be added into bread, muffins and cupcakes. If you shred zucchini finely on a cheese grater and squeeze out as much water as possible, you can add an extra chewy and moist texture to your yummy baked goods!

8. Zucchini Banana Bread

Maybe you’ve tried zucchini bread. Maybe banana bread is your go-to. But have you ever combined them?! If not, you need to try it now because it creates the most moist, cakey, mouthwatering quick bread ever! Especially when you add chocolate chips, of course.
