Zucchini is one of my absolute favorite summer vegetables. From appetizers to desserts, there are literally millions of ways you can use this versatile veggie. Searching online for “zucchini recipes” gives you over 24 million results! It’s an excellent source of manganese and is high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, fiber, and potassium – all for very few calories!
It can also easily be added to baked goods as an extra nutrition boost for picky eaters. If you find yourself with an abundance of zucchini this summer, here are 13 irresistibly healthy zucchini recipes to use it all up.

This is the time of year that I’m just starting to fade from my Zucchini passions. I start shredding it through the food processor and freezing for future recipes instead of trying new things. I’ll have to save this list for the next time I can look at a Zucchini.
That grasshopper pie looks positively perfect!
I’ve been making my zucchini into purée and adding it to pizza dough and breads. I want to make a zucchini pie next. Have you ever done a baked zucchini pie? Like pumpkin?
