Low-Carb Recipe Love on Fridays: Late Summer Zucchini Recipes found on KalynsKitchen.com

I’m sorry to remind you about it, but this is the last edition of Low-Carb Recipes Love on Fridays for the summer, because it will officially be FALL next Friday! And although I really do like fall, I know what comes after fall, so every year I’m sad to see the end of summer.

And even though it’s technically still summer, the weather has already started to change in Utah, and I’ve been (gasp) using the oven. In fact in one of those oven-using recipes, I declared that I think September should be called Roasted Zucchini Month because there are so many good recipe possibilities that start with roasted zucchini.

I really do think zucchini is somewhat unique among summer vegetables for the way it seamlessly moves in to fall without skipping a beat, which is why I decided to focus this last Low-Carb Recipe Love post of the summer on late-summer zucchini recipes. And there are some real keepers in this collection.

I know there have been quite a few zucchini recipes happening lately on the blog, so my apologies to everyone who’s not a zucchini fan. But if you do like zucchini and still have it in abundance, I hope one of the creations from this collection will make it on to your table before zucchini is just one of those summer memories that never last long enough.

Pesto Lasagna Roll-Ups from The Seasoned Mom featured for Low-Carb Recipe Love on Fridays found on KalynsKitchen.com

I love the idea of using zucchini in a casserole when the weather gets a bit cooler, and these Pesto Zucchini Lasagna Roll-Ups from The Seasoned Mom look amazing. Look for a marinara sauce that’s low in sugar to keep this recipe low in carbs.

Parmesan Crusted Baked Zucchini Fries from The Iron You featured for Low-Carb Recipe Love on Fridays found on KalynsKitchen.com

You might not make these Parmesan Crusted Baked Zucchini Fries from The Iron You in the heat of the summer, but now that you don’t mind turning on the oven, don’t they sound amazing? Dip in your favorite low-carb dip and you’re good to go!

French Onion Zoodle Bake from Clibing Grier Mountain featured for Low-Carb Recipe Love on Fridays found on KalynsKitchen.com

This French Onion Zoodle Bake from Climbing Grier Mountain definitely looks like fall comfort food, and this recipe has the flavors of French onion soup in a casserole. I would probably omit the one teaspoon of sugar or use an approved sweetener.

Philly Cheese Steak Zucchini Boats from Cooking Classy featured for Low-Carb Recipe Love on Fridays found on KalynsKitchen.com

Philly Cheese Steak Zucchini Boats from Cooking Classy sound like another comfort-food idea with Zucchini, and Jaclyn says this has all the flavors of a classic Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich without the empty carbs from the bread.

Grilled zucchini Low-Carb Lasagna featured for Low-Carb Recipe Love on Fridays found on KalynsKitchen.com

One of the things I’ve been making for years to use those giant zucchini that show up in the fall is this Grilled Zucchini Low-Carb Lasagna that uses thick slices of grilled zucchini to replace the noodles, and if you have some big zucchinis, this is a must-try!

Val;s Kid-Friendly Broiled Zucchini with Mozzarella and Pepperoni featured for Low-Carb Recipe Love on Fridays found on KalynsKitchen.com

And I’m sneaking in one more recipe from Kalyn’s Kitchen this week, because if you want an new idea for zucchini I highly recommend this super-easy recipe for Val’s Kid-Friendly Broiled Zucchini with Mozzarella and Pepperoni from my sister Val. And if you don’t have any kids to gobble it up, I’m sure the adults will make it disappear quickly.

  1. Hi, I'm new to the south beach diet, starting my second week on phase 1. I thinking about staying on it for another two weeks, your recipes look so good I'm going to start with these instead of the box meals. I am not good at counting the servings yet, when I make a meal how do I know how much to eat, for example the breakfast broccoli, ham and egg dish ?? The BLT ? I hope you can help .

    • I don't know what the South Beach Diet will change into now (and I am sad to see them emphasize purchased foods) but in the original program there was never specific portion sizes, except for certain foods that were considered "limited." I'd get one of the books (South Beach Diet Supercharged has the best food lists) and find out what those foods are, otherwise you just eat until you feel full. This page on my blog also has a link to the SBD foods list and other information that might be useful for you.

  2. Hi Kalyn. Are you stopping the "Low-Carb Recipes Love on Fridays" permanently or is it just a summer thing? Thank you for all the work you do on this blog. I think it is priceless.

    • Mary, I'm not stopping them at all, I just meant that when I post the next one it will officially be FALL! But I'm going to re-write that sentence since it wasn't clear. I am really enjoying doing them; no plans to stop!

  3. Thank you so much Kalyn for featuring my Zucchini fries, I really appreciate it.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I look forward to the end of summer in Alabama (97 degrees yesterday!). The good side of the long summer heat, though, is that we get fresh veggies much longer. In very warm years, I've had tomato plants still putting out a couple of fruits a week until November. One year I served fried green tomatoes from my plants at Thanksgiving!

  5. I'm not sorry to see the end of summer, but I will be sorry when the local zucchini stop coming in. Thanks for sharing these great recipes.
