These 50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes can provide endless recipes for using zucchini, just in case you’re lucky enough to get some on your porch!
It may not be an official government holiday, but gardeners everywhere celebrate August 8 as Sneak Some Zucchini on to Your Neighbor’s Porch Day. Several years ago I did a zucchini round-up in honor of the day, but since then I’ve made so many more recipes with zucchini that I decided to give that post a make-over and update it with some of my new favorites.You still have a few days before you need to start sneaking the zucchini on to the neighbor’s porch, so maybe these 50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes can help, or at least you can leave the neighbors a recipe idea along with that zucchini! And if you’re in a hurry to cook something healthy with zucchini, I also have a post with The Top Ten Most Popular Low-Carb Zucchini Recipes from Kalyn’s Kitchen!
But if you want to see all the zucchini goodness, I’ve divided the recipes into categories this time to help you find something you’ll like, and truthfully I think there might even be a few more than 50 recipes now! There are lots of other bloggers who have good zucchini recipes too, so after my list I’ll share a few links to other places to find them. Enjoy!
