Zucchini Recipes - Green Squash Galore

If you're a gardener living in a temperate climate, you should know that Zucchini is one of the easiest crops to grow. Often referred to as "green squash," this tasty delight also pops up in many recipes - so you should always have something to use it for, unless you are a picky eater and/or challenged in a culinary fashion; ha! Anyway, if you'd like to read more about this particular plant, visit the Wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zucchini

Personally, I usually take the least healthy (but yummy!) way to prepare it, by simply slicing it, dipping in a corn meal batter, apply seasoned salt and black pepper, then frying it in a pan of oil. I usually fry onions in with it, and fried potatoes also go great with Zucchini. Yep, I said frying, fry, fried... Ha-ha!

Now of course, there are many healthier ways to use your green squash. A few moments ago, I just sort of stumbled into a recipe page while browsing the world wide web. After landing on that page, I was like "damn, it is green squash galore." That page had like 20 recipes on it, providing instructions on how to make stuff like:
Yogurt-Zucchini Bread with Walnuts, Zucchini with Roasted Almonds and Zucchini Bread Croutons, Zucchini with Parmesan, Greek-Style Stuffed Zucchini with Tomatoes, Zucchini-and-Pepper Gratin with Herbs and Cheese, Ravioli and Zucchini Lasagna, Shrimp-and-Feta-Stuffed Zucchini, Spaghetti with Grilled Shrimp, Zucchini, and Salsa Verde, and many more...

  1. Thanks for the link! I love Zucchini and now I have even more recipe ideas! Yellow squash is also good, and I actually like to mix the green in with it for the different colors.

  2. Hey there... You actually bring up a good point, when you spoke about colors.
    Creating a colorful meal full of variety that looks appealing, not only insures that you are getting plenty of nutrients, vitamins & minerals, but it also helps make it taste even better. It is sort of a mind trick, I suppose; cheers!
