It’s prime zucchini season, so we’re sharing The Top Ten Low-Carb Zucchini Recipes from Kalyn’s Kitchen! But first, let’s talk about this time of year when some people have too much zucchini! Did you know August 8 is national Sneak Some Zucchini on to Your Neighbor’s Porch Day?
This fun little holiday was started by a gardener who noticed how zucchini take over the world this time of year, and when I had a big vegetable garden, I used to go around the neighborhood and give them away every August! With the very small garden I have now, I planted my zucchini in the front flower bed this year where it’s not quite sunny enough. But the zucchini are still coming at a regular pace!
For years I’ve celebrated this special zucchini day by updating my post with 50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes, and there are plenty of great recipes ideas using zucchini in that post. But last August I found myself wondering which ones were the most popular out of more than 100 zucchini recipes I’ve posted on the blog. And since zucchini is such a perfect low-carb food, I wanted to focus on the low-carb zucchini recipes.
I poked around in the stats, and some of the recipes that made the top ten list were definitely a surprise. (Plus a few of my own personal favorites didn’t even make the cut!) But I ended up with a list of ten low-carb recipes that have all been hugely popular!
And this year when I checked zucchini recipe stats again, these same ten are still the most popular and a few of them got new photos this year! If you’re a long time reader who likes zucchini, I’d love to know which of these is your personal favorite, or maybe you’ll find a new recipe in this collection of popular ones that you haven’t tried yet; enjoy!
Most Popular Low-Carb Zucchini Recipe #10
Number ten is this Marinated Zucchini Salad with Olives, Artichokes, and Red Pepper, and I updated the photos for this favorite salad recently which probably gave it the boost it needed to make it on the list! If you need an idea for a summer pot-luck this is a perfect salad that no one will guess is low in carbs!
Most Popular Low-Carb Zucchini Recipe #9
Number nine is this Greek Frittata with Zucchini, Tomato, Feta, and Herbs, and this is a personal favorite that I love to make on the weekends and reheat for breakfast for a few days! And if you have some Greek oregano in the garden, this recipe is a perfect way to use it.
Most Popular Low-Carb Zucchini Recipe #8
Number eight was definitely a surprise, although I’ve made this Garlic-Lover’s Vegetable Stir Fry with Eggplant, Zucchini, and Yellow Squash quite a few times and always enjoyed it so I shouldn’t be that surprised!
Most Popular Low-Carb Zucchini Recipe #7
Number seven is Parmesan Encrusted Zucchini, and this is something I’ve made often for guests. Of course the combination of parmesan + zucchini is always a winner, right!

Coming in at number six is this Zucchini Bake with Feta and Thyme that I’ve made pretty much every year since I first posted the recipe! I cook this in my toaster oven if it’s still too hot to use the oven.

The number four recipe is these Meat, Tomato, and Mozzarella Stuffed Zucchini Cups, and if you end up with a giant zucchini on the porch, this is one of the most fun ways to use it.
