Zucchini is a delicate summer squash that deserves to be celebrated all year — and it can be with these easy zucchini recipes. Trust us, there’s way more to zucchini than just zucchini noodles, aka zoodles (although they are pretty darn delicious!).
It’s not hard to see why some people absolutely despise zucchini. When it’s not cooked properly, the texture is slimy yet gritty, and biting through the rind feels like chomping down on a rubber bath mat. But when there’s a whiz in the kitchen, zucchini is subtle and almost floral. The nice thing about zucchini is that it’s mild flavor doesn’t ever remind you that you’re eating a vegetable. And if you ask us, the best veggies are those that don’t taste like something green.
Even better is that while you’re off enjoying your zoodle bolognese, you’re fueling your body with antioxidants and healthy B vitamins. Additionally, zucchini is a low in carbs and high in fiber, making it an excellent choice for any keto diet. So, help yourself to another serving of our Cauliflower Pizza With Mozzarella and Zucchini (if there are any slices left!).
