50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes
These 50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes have so many great ideas for using zucchini, and most of the zucchini recipes are low in carbs! This post has my favorite zucchini recipes from many years of growing zucchini in the garden.
Gardeners everywhere celebrate August 8 as Sneak Some Zucchini on to Your Neighbor’s Porch Day and many years ago I posted 50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes in honor of that day. But every year I keep cooking with zucchini and updating this post with more zucchini favorites, and now there are so many good ideas here that these zucchini recipes can really help you use your zucchini before you have to start leaving it on someone’s porch!
I’ve divided my zucchini recipes into categories to help you find something you’ll like, and truthfully there are more than 50 recipes now that I’ve been adding new ones for a few years! And if you really have a lot of zucchini, you can use Summer Squash Recipes to find all the zucchini recipes on my website.
Are the zucchini recipes low-carb or Keto?
This collection has my favorite zucchini recipes from Kalyn’s Kitchen, so most of these recipes will be low-carb or Keto. But there are still a few old favorites from the early days of the blog, many of which can easily be made low-carb with minor changes. You can click to a recipe and use the diet-type under the icon to check what diets each recipe is suitable for if you are in doubt.
