100+ Savory & Sweet Zucchini and Summer Squash Recipes

Heirloom 'Bennings Green Tint' Summer Squash. zucchini & summer squash recipes

You know that time of the year?

The one where you start your conversations with ‘Would you like some zucchini?’ before even saying hello!?

Zucchini and summer squash season can be overwhelming at times. Just one healthy plant can produce a few new zucchini every second day which means in a week you’re loaded. Then the next week.. then the next. Before you know it you have 20+lbs and your cute little zucchini are turning into a monstrosity of marrows which gives you even more to use up!

But zucchini is absolutely delicious and you’d be amazed at how versatile this amazing veggie can be in your kitchen

Can you use summer squash instead of zucchini?

Yes!!!

Sometimes summer squash, especially the patty pan squash can be a little firmer and less watery but it depends on the variety. Zucchini & Summer Squash are related and can be used in the same ways, so even if a recipe calls for zucchini you can use summer squash or vice versa.

Are you ready for some amazing recipe inspiration!?

Because Zucchini is often eaten in either savory or sweet dishes I’ve separated the recipes accordingly. I’ve also mentioned a few ways to preserve your zucchini harvest too should you still have too much to eat within the season! 😀

  1. Oh my gosh thank you so much for all the ideas! Pinning this one for later. I feel like we always just end up having squash boiled with cheese on it because I am trying to use as much of it as possible.

  2. There’s a recipe for zucchini brownies. …I think it’s on crazyforcrust.Com… i prefer it without the frosting. …I dream about zucchini season just so I can make them. It’s unreal! You have to put that recipe into heavy rotation!
