18 Healthy Zucchini Recipes for Everyone

As summer is starting to wind down, I wanted to give you some ideas for taking full advantage of one of my favorite pieces of summer produce: zucchini.

What I personally love about zucchini is that there seems to be an endless amount of possibilities when it comes for how to use it. Of course, there's the classic zucchini bread, there are zucchini noodles, but there are also so many other ways to sneak this healthy vegetable into your diet.

I also love that zucchini has pretty much zero taste. Granted, when it's cooked it can have a somewhat strange texture (that's why Matt doesn't like it), but it comes to taste, zucchini is fairly plain. Which means… if you have picky eaters at home, someone who doesn't like eating vegetables, or are generally just trying to get more vegetables into your own diet, zucchini could be your answer!

So today I've rounded up 18 of my absolute favorite and super healthy zucchini recipes to give you some end-of-summer inspiration. We've got recipes for all taste buds, all time of day, and truly something for everyone!

Savor those last few weeks of summer while you can – and make sure to pin this post for later!
