15 Fresh Zucchini Recipes My Kids Love


I’m lucky to have a neighbor with a garden, and it’s right around this time of year that she’s swimming in zucchini. Lucky for us, we get to share in her bounty…but the armfuls of zucchini can feel like a bit much, all at once. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find different ways to serve it up for what seems like a couple weeks on end. When it’s zucchini harvest time, I feel like I’m adding zucchini to almost every meal I cook.

This beloved vegetable is super versatile; it’s the key ingredient in dishes from savory pastas to crispy zucchini chips to desserts and muffins. So get busy with these fifteen fresh zucchini recipes!
