You won’t be squashed for ideas when you use zucchini in your favorite recipes.
It may be a member of the squash family, but it brings its own colors, flavors, and textures to any dish. At Southern Living we love fresh zucchini, and our editors and test kitchen have developed great recipes to bring the beauty of this vegetable to its full potential. It can be amazing as an appetizer in Zucchini Stuffed with Lady Peas, or sensational as a side if you make Baked Zucchini Chips.
If you can’t imagine how to work zucchini into your breakfast routine, a Zucchini-Onion Frittata will mean you can get going every day with a serving of green vegetables. It also pairs well, so think of zucchini as an ingredient to mix in with yellow squash, or to slide onto skewers to make the perfect vegetable kebabs. A Summer Squash Casserole, or Spicy Glazed Shrimp and Vegetable Kabobs, would be great places to start. However you enjoy this versatile vegetable, zucchini should be one of the first picks in your basket, and one of the favorite tastes on your plate.
