Zucchini Serving Ideas:
There are endless ways to use zucchini! If you have access to a spiralizer, you can cut up zucchini into noodles (or “zoodles”) to use as a raw pasta for a lightened “pasta” dish. Zoodles can be eaten raw, or quickly blanched for a softer texture. You can serve the zoodles like spaghetti with any sauce you like.
You could also roast zucchini with some mushrooms, sweet bell peppers, eggplant, and onion and serve on the side. Zucchini is also great in a ratatouille (also baked), in a frittata, or mixed into fritters for breakfast.
Zucchini is delicious grilled, served on it’s own with some olive oil, salt and pepper, or chopped into a grilled veggie salad.
Sneak some more veggies into the meals you prepare for your kids by hiding it in zucchini chocolate cake or brownies! They won’t even notice as zucchini simply adds more moisture to baked goods without weighing down the batter!
