There’s one vegetable — excuse us, fruit — that always seems to win the popularity contest during summer. Mild-tasting and approachable, zucchini is often a top pick when scanning the stands at a local farmers’ market, and people feel the need to stockpile it every time they leave the house and head to the store.

Despite how it tastes, though, and how easy it is to use it, there always seems to be a surplus of zucchini lying around come August. Oftentimes we get so excited about seasonal zucchini come summer, that we buy a little more than we know what to do with, and are forced to let perfectly delicious and ripe zucchini rot and be thrown away.
While running out of uses for zucchini can happen, it doesn’t mean we like zucchini any less. The zucchini’s popularity spans the globe internationally, as it's a staple of France’s classic dish, ratatouille, and a favorite of the Italians in their stuffed zucchini blossoms. It’s also a great source of nutrition, as it’s loaded with folate, potassium, and vitamin A. The best part about zucchini, though, is that it’s versatile, and whether steamed, grilled, sautéed, or mashed, it’ll always taste great with what you’re serving that night.
Sometimes, all it takes is a little inspiration to put that zucchini to good use, and we’re here to provide it with 10 easy and unique zucchini recipes for you to put your bounty to good use. These recipes prove that a zucchini’s uses go far beyond the bread and pasta, and it can be added to just about any meal you’re craving. Easy skillet lasagna made with arugula and fontina is great to make at the start of the week to keep on hand whenever you’re in need of a meal, and fish recipes, like a cornmeal-crusted catfish and halibut with tahini sauce, demonstrate that zucchini are far from boring. It’s time to stop regretting those overzealous purchases of zucchini and make them well worth it — just take a look at these recipes and get started.

Grilled Ratatouille Tartines
If zucchini is in season and you have it on hand, there’s a good chance you also have tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers in the fridge. These veggies make up the classic Provençal dish ratatouille, and they taste wonderful together. I like to grill them until they’re nice and charred and toss them with sherry vinegar and fresh herbs. Then, I pile them onto toast with a slather of hummus or soft goat cheese to make a fresh summer starter.
Zucchini & Radish Carpaccio Crostini, page 67 of Love & Lemons Every Day
Thin radish and zucchini slices take the place of meat in this plant-based riff on carpaccio. Top them onto crostini with soft goat cheese or labneh, or substitute the Almond Cheese on page 73 to make this recipe vegan.
Five Great Recipes Made with Grated Zucchini
Shred two zucchini, and you've got the base for four easy, delicious summer dishes.
If you grow zucchini (or have a neighbor who does), chances are your summer dinner menu is always packed with recipes that feature the vegetable. With its versatility and nutritious elements, that&aposs a good thing! While you might typically think of slicing or dicing it, think outside the chopping block by grating the squash. Trust us, grating—or shredding it—opens up a whole new world of possibilities. From savory side dishes to vegetarian mains and sweet desserts, there are an endless numbers of ways to put shredded zucchini to good use in your favorite recipes.
While each of these recipes explains how to properly prepare the zucchini, the majority of them call for shredding two medium zucchinis on the large holes of a box grater. This should yield about four cups. After, we recommend tossing it with half a teaspoon coarse salt in a colander set over a bowl. Let stand 10 minutes before squeezing out excess moisture with your hands—then get cooking.

Summer’s bounty: These three recipes prove there’s no such thing as too much zucchini
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about backyard vegetable gardens, it is this: Never turn your back on a zucchini plant.
To be clear, I’m not the family gardener. My husband, Derek, built the raised beds and plants the crops each year. He does the watering and weeding. I do the harvesting and cooking. And baking. And freezing. No canning. I can only Laura Ingalls Wilder so much.
But every afternoon, I grab my harvest basket and go through our glorious garden gathering its delicious bounty. Our tomatoes are ripening carrots, beets, beans and cucumbers are coming on strong peppers are ready for picking and so is the summer squash.
Zucchini are the rabbits of the produce world. You start with two small plants and feel like you’ve got something manageable and enjoyable.
Next thing you know, you’re eating zucchini three times a day, bringing them as host gifts to dinner parties and trying to give the UPS driver squash when he delivers your packages. Let’s just say if you visit our home in August, you’re not leaving without zucchini.
No one wants to deal with a Goodyear blimp-size squash, so on my garden rounds, I carefully peer beneath the leaves and ferret out every reasonably sized zucchini. The next time I check, there are four or 40 more!
I’m not complaining. Much. I love zucchini, and over the years I’ve amassed an impressive selection of recipes. Even our youngest son, who scorns sautéed squash, will devour any dessert made from the versatile plant.
The challenge comes with inputting our garden’s output. At any given moment, our refrigerator holds a huge bowl of grated zucchini waiting to be baked into breads, chopped into casseroles or sliced into side dishes.
In the past two weeks, I’ve baked chocolate zucchini bread, chocolate chip-orange zucchini bread, zucchini brownies, zucchini cornbread and lemon zucchini bread.
I’ve made zucchini stuffing casserole, Mexican zucchini bake and crispy Parmesan garlic chicken with zucchini.
Yet, my son still asks most every night, “Is there zucchini in this?” Give him another week – he’ll stop asking.
Soon, I’ll start freezing shredded squash to get us through the long, gardenless months. That’s where Derek lends his muscle. For some reason, we’ve never owned a food processor, so I like to credit my husband’s massive forearms to his regular workouts with grater and squash.
We both enjoy the fruits of our combined labor, and I hope you’ll enjoy trying these three recipes. Crispy Parmesan garlic chicken with zucchini is a simple stove-top supper, doable on hot summer days.
Mexican zucchini bake goes great with grilled steak or salmon. Pro tip: I bake it in the morning and pop it in the microwave at dinner so as not to heat up the kitchen.
Lastly, lemon zucchini bread is a perfect light, summery dessert. The glaze adds a delightful mix of sweet and tart. Now I’d better head out to the garden. I’ve left the zucchini unattended for too long. I might need a bigger basket.
Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken with Zucchini
2 chicken breasts, sliced in half, or 4 thin chicken breasts
8 tablespoons butter, divided
½ cup plus 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan, divided
2 medium zucchinis, sliced
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter.
To make the chicken, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and flour.
Dip the chicken in the butter and then coat in the bread crumb mixture and place in a skillet.
Cook on each side for about 3-4 minutes, until the outside is crispy and the chicken is cooked through. Set aside on a plate.
Add 2 tablespoons of butter back to the skillet and sauté the minced garlic for 1 minute. Add the zucchini to the skillet and sauté until tender. Salt and pepper to taste, and add 1 tablespoon Parmesan. Add the chicken back to the skillet and heat for 1 minute or so.
Yield: 4 servings
Mexican Zucchini Bake
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 7 ounce can diced green chilies, drained
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Beat the eggs, milk, flour, baking powder and salt until smooth. Stir in the cheese, zucchini, chilies, onion, parsley and garlic.
Turn into a greased 9-by-13-inch pan. Combine the croutons and melted butter sprinkle over the top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Yield: 10-12 servings
Lemon Zucchini Bread
1 cup finely shredded, unpeeled zucchini
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons finely shredded lemon peel
For the glaze:
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine the sugar, zucchini, cooking oil, egg, lemon juice and lemon peel. Stir to combine.
Add dry ingredients to the zucchini mixture stir just until combined.
Spoon the batter into a greased bread pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes, or until golden brown and set.
Cool in a pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes, then remove from the pan and cool completely.
Once cool, combine the ingredients for the glaze and drizzle over the bread.
Note: Glaze can be doubled if desired.
