My favorite Summer vegetable is zucchini! There are so many family friendly Summer Zucchini Recipes to enjoy. Here are few of my all time favorites and most of them are low carb.
Zucchini doesn’t have to be bland and boring anymore. You can stuff them, make them into zoodles and my family favorite, zucchini lasagna. Zucchini is my go-to veggie in the Summer. My family eats them several times a week and they are affordable! My local grocery store had them for only $1 each today, so I loaded up on them. Of course garden fresh zucchinis are the best, but who has time for that with 2 small kids. One day, I would love to have a vegetable garden, guess that will have to wait until the kids get older. Well, at least old enough to help 😉 Here are some of my favorite Summer zucchini recipes. Some I have tried and others I will be making very soon.
Zucchini noodles or zoodles have been a life saver for needing a pasta substitute. I use my spiralizer which is super easy and dishwasher safe (bonus). The kids love watching how the zoodles spiral out in long strains. You can add chicken, beef or even pork to this Pad Thai. It’s a low carb favorite and sugar free!
This is on my must make list! These Salt and Vinegar Zucchini Chips are a healthy alternative to does greasy potato chips for sure. They are only 40 calories per serving and low carb. I don’t have a dehydrator, so I will be making these in my oven. Going to try making them with other veggies too.
Here’s another way of serving them, stuffing them and making them into boats. These Tex-Mex Zucchini Boats are easy to make and can be cut into smaller pieces and served as appetizers. They are stuffed with ground beef, cheesy goodness and topped with a 10 minute salsa. Another low carb option!
This is just too pretty not to make. I couldn’t pass up adding this to my must make list. This Zucchini Tart can be made with a store bought dough to save time. There is even an additional vegan recipe too. After clicking on link above for recipe, you will need to translate it to English. Right click and then click translate to English
Sauteing zucchini does not have to be boring! This zucchini has one of my favorite ingredients, capers. I cannot wait to try this Sauteed Zucchini with Mint, Basil and Pine Nuts. Only takes about 15 minutes and is low carb also.
If I call it pizza, the kids will eat it. I let the kids stuff their own Zucchini Pizza Boats. For some reason if they help make the food, they are more likely to eat it. I can’t get over the mini pepperonis. Adorable!
This Zucchini Parmesan looks amazing! A nice alternative to the traditional parm. I have the kids do the dredging to keep them busy and my hands clean 🙂
I have been making this Zucchini Lasagna for several years now. I prefer it to regular pasta lasagna. I honestly can’t tell that it is zucchini instead of lasagna noodles. The trick is to grill or saute the zucchini first. Zucchini lets out a lot of water when baked which means your lasagna will be soggy on the bottom. Then just layer it like you would your traditional pasta lasagna. I use canned sauce to save time. Also get extra zucchini, they shrink on the grill. It is low carb and gluten free too.
How can you resist these delicious Zucchini Ravioli? Can you guess what she used to slice it…a vegetable peeler! No need for fancy gadgets to make these pockets of heaven.
Well, hello cheesy goodness. Move over mac’n cheese, there’s a new sheriff in town. This Easy Cheesy Zucchini only has 3 ingredients and only takes 15 minutes to make. And yet again, it’s low carb!
