Here are five zucchini recipes to get you started!

June 21, 2017

Zucchini definitely doesn’t get the love that it deserves (and no, a zucchini isn’t the same thing as a cucumber). More common vegetables such as broccoli or green beans oftentimes overshadow zucchini, which can lead people to avoid the mild veggie altogether.

What many people do not know is that zucchini is actually quite versatile and can soak up the flavor of pretty much anything. Even those without much experience will find it easy to cook with.

Zucchini season falls between June and August, making it the perfect summer vegetable. If there was ever a time to start implementing zucchini more regularly into your diet or begin experimenting with it in the kitchen, it’s now!

So, here are five fun zucchini recipes to help get you started.
