When it comes to versatile vegetables, zucchinis are up there with the best of the bunch. The summer squash can be transformed into a variety of dishes, from sweet to savory, and is delicious in every form. Here are three ways to get the most out of those zesty zucchinis.

Zucchini Fritters

Potatoes usually get all the glory when it comes to fritters, but zucchinis are, arguably, even more delicious in this fabulous form. The fritters can be served as a supper side dish, with some salad for lunch, or in Eggs Benedict for brunch.


Pasta lovers, listen up. Zucchini noodles—or zoodles, as they’re known—are the healthier alternative to spaghetti for those times that you want a plate of pasta but are cutting down on carbs. Cover them in a sauce of your choice, or throw them in a salad.

Zucchini Brownies

Want super fudgy brownies that are also on the healthier side? Hello, zucchinis! Grated zucchinis add moisture to the brownie mixture and are especially great if you’re trying to sneak a few extra veggies into your kids’ diet. And don’t worry—your brownies won’t actually taste like squash!
