Zucchini Squash Recipes and Other Fun Ways to Use Zucchini!

If your garden is filled with too many zucchinis, this is the article for you.

Along with some beautiful photos of our zucchini and summer squash friends, in this article, you will find a compendium of:

  • Zucchini anatomy and flowers.
  • The difference between zucchini, courgette, and marrow.
  • How to make zucchini ribbons and noodles.
  • How to prepare zucchini for freezing.
  • The best recipes for grilled, fried, and baked zucchini, and how to use the flowers.

Zucchini Origin

Squash originated in North America, but zucchini were developed in Italy and then brought back to the US some time in the 1920s, so they count as a returning immigrant.

Zucchini flowers. See the fruit developing at the base of the flower?

Zucchini Flowers and Cooking Squash Blossoms

Zucchinis have both male and female flowers. Look for the female flower at the end of the growing zucchini. Look for the male flower where the leaf stalk meets the stem. They are both edible!

Nip those zucchinis in the bud! When you cook zucchini flowers, it is customary to remove the parts in the middle, the pistils and stamens, if you remember your flower anatomy! The stem is good to keep so you have something to hang on to when you are cooking them. Otherwise, the blossom may tear.

You can fry the flowers like fritters or dipped in tempura batter and fried up, incorporated in scrambled eggs, stuffed, sauteed, and even use them in a flower soup.

Zucchini, courgette, and marrow.

Is It a Zucchini, a Courgette, or a Marrow?

  • Courgettes are the baby fruit of several types of marrow, harvested when they are 14x4 cm long—about the size of a cigar.
  • Zucchinis are the fruits of the same plant but harvested when they are 15–20 cm long.
  • Marrows are the semi-mature fruits that have reached full size.

How to Make Zucchini Ribbons

You can peel a zucchini with a vegetable peeler, a julienne peeler, or a mandoline vegetable slicer—leaving the seeds out. Some people like the green skin, others like to peel it off first, because the skin can sometimes be bitter.

I like to sauté it in olive oil or butter, add some garlic, or some cream, and put some parmesan cheese on top. Sometimes I add some tomato sauce or even a spoonful of salsa for flavor. Yum!

How Do You Freeze Zucchini?

I know two ways of freezing zucchini—sliced and grated.

  • Grated: Grate the zucchini in the amount you will need for your favorite recipe. One to three cups work best. Put it directly into the freezer in a ziplock bag or other freezer container. When you defrost it for a recipe, add the water that's in the bag or container, too.
  • Slices: Steam the zucchini for about five minutes. Then cool the zucchini before putting it in a ziplock bag or container. Don't forget to label how much zucchini you put in the container.

As always when storing food in your freezer, label the container with the date frozen and what is inside, and how much is inside. It makes it much easier when you're digging through trying to find the bag you need.

Grilled zucchini is so good!

Grilled Zucchini or Fried

When zucchini is grilled, it tastes so good. All sorts of new flavors come out when it's grilled.

I have to admit, I also really like frying zucchini. Just cut big slices, coat in flour, and fry in your favorite oil. I like to add some salt, garlic powder, and thyme to the flour, which adds a beautiful flavor to the dish.

Beautiful zucchini.

National Zucchini Day Is August 8th

It all started in Pennsylvania when there was an unusually productive harvest.

According to what I could find in my research, National Zucchini Day began as a day when people would secretly put gifts (well, maybe it was an act of desperation!) of zucchini on their neighbors' porches. It was originally called "Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day."

Grow zucchini and maybe you'll get a six-foot long zucchini like this!

Want to Grow Your Own Zucchini?

A six-foot-tall zucchini? That is what you see in the picture. In 2008, a woman in Queens, NY went away for a weekend. When she came back, her zucchini had grown almost two inches in two days. She let it continue growing and ended up with a six-foot zucchini.

Is it the world's longest zucchini? No. So far, the world's longest was grown in India and was more than seven feet tall. But this one counts as one VERY BIG zucchini.

Zucchini Jokes and a Poem

Q: How do you know if you are living in an urban area or not?

  • A: You aren't living in an urban area if you have to lock your car doors in order to keep your neighbors from putting their extra zucchini in the back seat of your car!

Q: What is a zucchini's favorite game?

  • A: Squash!

Q: What do a kangaroo and a zucchini have in common?

  • A: Neither one can ride a bike.

A Poem by "Wren"

It was an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny

silver striped green zucchini.

While we slumbered, what went wrong?

Overnight it's two feet long!

        My mom boiled it most of the time. I didn't like it. Then someone taught her to dip slices into beaten egg, dredge it into seasoned flour, and deep fry it. I loved that! Later she started making zucchini bread - wonderful! After I grew up and left home, a friend gave me a recipe for a ground beef/zucchini casserole with cheese. I've found that many, many foods made with zucchini can be absolutely delicious, as long as you disguise the flavor of the zucchini. ;) (My apologies to all of you who love the way it tastes all by itself. :D )

        What to do with zucchini? You cannot be serious. If George Washington Carver was alive today, he would not be wasting his time with peanuts or sweet potatoes. He would be telling us about new recipes for zucchini yogurt made from zucchini milk (not totally joking by the way) and using the skin of the zucchini to make leather coats.

        This is so obvious to me.

        By the way, lots of people have heard of how great zucchini bread is. Waffles though is a new idea.

        I love zucchini, but try very hard to pick it when it's still at the courgette stage. Lovely sliced in sandwiches with Havarti cheese! As the season goes on, though, the veggies do tend to get away from me - so I grate and slice the bigger zucchini for freezing, when I've made so many zucchini pasta sauces and stir fry dishes, stuffed zucchini, zucchini-chocolate cake, zucchini muffins... etc., that the family is starting to turn green at the mention of zucchini. :) Thanks so much for some more recipes to add to my repertoire!

        A much needed lens!

        Zucchini is one of those foods that puzzles me. It's soggy, tasteless, and just plain nasty. That said, I will eat super thinly sliced grilled zucchini. But the only recipe in which zucchini has truly proven it has a place in this world is in my mother's chocolate zucchini cupcakes. Your lens hasn't convinced me to go out and buy zucchini, but it was a good effort. :) :::blessed:::

        We have a fish and a snail that eats zucchini here at our house. Try as I might I've yet to find a recipe that my children will indulge in. I try to "cover" it up in spaghetti sauces and all kinds of stuff but they have a healthy food nose detector I swear.

        Thanks for sharing.

        I love to eat Zucchini with some grilled bean curd with some soy sauce, or some chili source. It is delicious.

        I make mine into zucchini fries (that's baby marrow chips here in South Africa). Cut the zucchini lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, and then cut into fry sized shapes. Put in a bowl and pour a little olive oil, salt, pepper, marjoram, oregano, and a little cayenne pepper. Mix and then grill or roast in the oven at 200C (400F) until they brown. It's super yummy.
