60+ Zucchini Recipes to Kick Off Fall

In American Food by Amanda Mouttaki6 Comments

Before we left the US, zucchini was just coming into season. My mom’s garden was overflowing with zucchini and she had no idea what she was going to do with all of them. I remember the end of every summer producing more of this vegetable than we knew what to do with.  Neighbors would share them by the bag-full. I love zucchini because they have a light flavor and can be combined with sweet or savory flavors. Just about any dish you can imagine can incorporate zucchini either as the centerpiece or as an added vitamin booster (shhh don’t tell the kids!) Chances are you’ve got the same, delicious, situation as my mom. Here are more than 60 recipe ideas to use up all of your zucchini and yellow squash!

    Don't let this picture fool you (it's pretty low quality!)  These were some of the best french fries I've made in a long time.  It's so worth the extra time to actually make them from real potatoes than frozen.  You can easily change the spices used in this to create "asian" fries "southwestern" fries or…

    Dessert in Morocco is generally very light and usually if not always whichever fruit is in season. I have a very vivid memory of Morocco and the smell of rain and oranges. One visit in December/January proved to be in the middle or orange season. What a shock it was going from snowy Wisconsin to…
