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. I first did a round-up of 50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes many years ago in honor of that fun day. But every year I keep cooking with zucchini and now have a lot more zucchini favorites to share! You still have a few days before you need to start sneaking the zucchini on to the neighbor’s porch, so these zucchini recipe can help you use up the zucchini in the meantime.
I do want to be clear that not every one of my 50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes is low in carbs, but most of them are or can easily be made low-carb with minor changes. And if you want to narrow down your choices, I also have a post with The Top Ten Low-Carb Zucchini Recipes from Kalyn’s Kitchen!
I’ve divided the recipes into categories to help you find something you’ll like, and truthfully I think there are 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!
