The Absolute Best Zucchini Recipes

Updated on October 1, 2014

For the Zucchini Lover in all of Us

The absolute best zucchini recipes, zucchini holidays, zucchini videos, you name it and if it's about zucchini you'll find it here!

Zucchini is a nutritious and versatile vegetable that often gets overlooked. It's light taste goes well in soups and stews. It's great fried and what would ratatouille be without it?

Zucchini is effortless to grow and it grows so fast after it's sown you'll be overrun in no time. You'll be thankful that there are so many ways to serve it and a holiday for sharing some with your neighbors!

Zucchini is a great source of Vitamin A, Thiamin, Niacin, Phosphorus and copper. It provides needed fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Folate, Potassium, and other good stuff. The bad part is that it also contains natural sugar. (That's what makes it taste so good.)

4 Cups thin-sliced Zucchini

½ cup chopped Onions

3 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

In a large bowl combine beaten eggs and grated Mozzarella cheese, mix well. Add the Zucchini mixture to bowl and stir gently.

Separate Crescent roll dough and place into an ungreased pie pan, to form a crust. Press the perforations together to prevent the zucchini mixture from escaping.

Pour Zucchini mixture evenly into the crust-lined pan.

Bake for about 20 minutes (or until knife inserted in center comes out clean)

Fried Zucchini Recipe

Fried Zucchini Sticks Recipe

aka Fried Baseball Bats Recipe

This recipe is perfect for when you find one of those HUGE zucchinis in your garden, the one that somehow got overlooked while harvesting and turned into a giant zucchini baseball bat! Of course you can also use it for your everyday normal sized zucchinis.

Ingredients:

Extra-large zucchini, peeled, and sliced like French fries, eliminating the seeds.

1 Egg

1/4 cup milk

Approximately 1 cup bread crumbs (depends on how well your zucchini hid)

1/4 cup flour

Vegetable oil for frying

Salt to taste

Directions:

Beat egg with milk in bowl.

Mix bread crumbs with flour in another bowl.

Dip your zucchini sticks into the egg mixture and then into the bread crumb mixture until well coated.

Remove from skillet and drain on a bed of paper towels.

Season with salt and serve warm.

Zucchini sticks are so delicious the kids won't even know that they're eating vegetables!

Ratatouille Recipe

Ratatouille Recipe

Ratatouille is a classic Mediterranean vegetable dish made with succulent eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, bell pepper and mushrooms.

Ratatouille is also the name of a new movie released by Pixar featuring the voices of Patton Oswalt, Lou Romano and Janeane Garofalo, about a rat named Remy who dreams of becoming a chef. Cute stuff!

I thought I'd share my recipe for ratatouille for those of you who'd like to try it or serve it in honor of viewing the movie. Hey, it could be a sneaky way to get your kids to eat more vegetables!

Ingredients:

½ cup olive oil (measured and used in separate portions)

1 large onion, diced

2 cloves garlic minced

2 Zucchini sliced (skin on)

1 eggplant, peeled and diced

2 large tomatoes or 4 plum tomatoes, chopped

1 red bell pepper diced

1 cup fresh mushrooms sliced

2 Tablespoons parsley

Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Heat 1 1/2 tablespoon of Olive oil in a large pot over medium-low heat.

Add onion and garlic. Sauté until soft and golden.

In a large fry pan, heat another 1 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and sauté the zucchini until lightly browned. (both sides)

Remove the zucchini and place in the pot with the onions and garlic.

Sauté all the remaining vegetables, except the tomatoes, one batch at a time, adding 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil to the fry pan each time you add a new set of vegetables.

Once each batch has been sautéed add them to the pot with the onions, garlic, and zucchini.

Season with salt and pepper.

Cover the pot.

Cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and parsley to the large pot, cook another 10-15 minutes. Stir as needed.

Serve warm and enjoy!

To make this more of a meal, serve your ratatouille over pasta!

Quick Guide to Growing Zucchini

A Quick Guide to Growing Zucchini

Growing great zucchini is easy. Once it gets established in your garden the stuff grows like a weed. Most gardeners end up with too much zucchini for their own good and have to share it with the neighborhood.

The most important thing to remember about growing zucchini is that it should be picked young, when it is no more than 2 inches in diameter. It just tastes better that way and contains fewer, smaller seeds. Picking it young will also encourage the plant to produce more zucchini.

I do have a warning for you though. Zucchini loves to play hide and seek, and it usually wins. No matter how closely I examine my zucchini plants there is always one zucchini that is growing unwatched and unpicked until it is the size of a Louisville Slugger baseball bat. Never fails! I don't know how they do it. Keep in mind that even at this immense size they are tasty and edible, if you remove the skin and seeds. Try using the big ones for fried zucchini sticks.

I always start my zucchini from seeds. Follow the directions on the package and be sure to give the plants lots of space because their leaves get huge.

Zucchini and all the other squashes in the squash family love full sun and well-drained, nutrition rich soil. Be sure to keep your zucchini plants well watered, especially during the hot, dry days of summer and never plant them in the same spot the following year or they may get diseased.

Harvest your zucchini by twisting it off of the vine carefully so as not to injure the plant. You may also harvest it by cutting the fruit off with a sharp knife.

The beautiful orange flowers of the zucchini plant are also edible and quite delicious when breaded and deep-fried, or used to perk up a boring salad.

Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day

August 8th is a fun food holiday that you might not be aware of, Sneak Some Zuchinni onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day.

Due to the overzealous reproductive nature of the zucchini plant, and the sometimes overzealous nature of the zucchini gardener, on Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day, zucchini growers everywhere are expected to drop off baskets of zucchini onto their neighbors' doorsteps.

When dropping off the zucchini remember, get rid of as much as possible. He who sneaks the most zucchini onto his neighbors porch, wins!

Keep in mind that the key word to this holiday is sneak. Don't get caught or next year you may find yourself the victim of this insanely entertaining holiday.

Leave a zucchini love note or a big green thumbs up!

Thanks for Visiting my Zucchini Lens!

      We have yet to grow zucchini but I have heard that it is one of the easiest crops to produce a bounty of. One of these years I will give a few plants a little room in our garden spot. (I wanted to say thank you as well.) The staff here at Squidoo really are amazing.

Fortunately I've had a couple of friends give me a zucchini here and there. Have one in the refrigerator right now which is why I'm here looking for a good recipe. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for the new ideas. I have a big pile of squash sitting in the kitchen taunting me right now...come on, find a NEW way to eat us, dare ya! We always over-plant and I think the neighbors are getting sick of us bringing them zucchini so any new recipes are always welcomed.

      It is zucchini time where I live and this wonderful lens is certainly filling the bill

      Can't wait to try your recipes. I especially love grilled or sauted zucchini and zucchini bread!
