Is your garden overflowing with zucchini and squash? Mine is, but that only makes me happy, because I have all these delicious zucchini recipes I want to try. I’ve already experimented with some recipes over the years, and a few emerged as favorites, but I’m always up for discovering more ways to enjoy this hard worker from my garden.
We have 3 definite winners in our home: fried zucchini with garlic mayonnaise, zucchini cake (a recipe I found while flipping a Vegetarian Times magazine about 10 years ago), and the spiralized zucchini fries below. YUM!
And, of course, I learned how to freeze zucchini in several ways and enjoy it throughout the year.
