4 Fantastic Zucchini Recipes

Lemon Zucchini Bread

We’ve all had zucchini bread but have you ever had lemon zucchini bread? Yes lemon and zucchini pair so well together and this is a great way to switch up boring ole zucchini bread! This bread is so soft with the zesty tang of lemon and the perfect right of sweetness. It also freezes really well too. Click here for the recipe.

Fudgy Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

There’s zucchini in these brownies so that must make them healthy right? Honestly these are the fudgiest brownies you will ever make. I like to sprinkle a little sea salt on top. Click here for the recipe.

Creamy Zucchini Corn Chowder

This is a great summer soup that transitions well to fall and can be enjoyed chilled or hot. Velvety zucchini and sweet corn make a delicious base. Top with some creamy goat cheese and crackers for the perfect crunch! Click here for the recipe.

Greek Turkey Meatball Bowls

This is such an easy healthy, weeknight meal idea! Sneak some zucchini into turkey meatballs and make crispy in the air fryer so you don’t have to heat the house! Serve over some chopped veggies and top with Tzatiki and feta. Click here for the recipe.

    That is some zucchini!! A great size to core and stuff for an entire dinner meal 🙂 Your zucchini soup reminded me of a soup my Grandma used to make with potatoes and zucchini. Zucchini is so versatile and no matter what one does with it, always turns out wonderful. Thank you for sharing your recipes!

    The only recipe I have for courgettes is for soup, steamed in butter and curry powder and pureed with soft cream cheese. Thank you for joining in with #pocolo
