It’s that time of the summer when fresh produce is at it’s best. Whether it comes from your garden, grocery store, local farmer’s market, or a generous neighbor, it’s zucchini season!
A few easy favorites of ours for simple summer fare.
Grilling zucchini is one of my top summer side dishes. If we are grilling, it’s likely zucchini is on as well. So simple. Slice in half across. Then slice each half in half lengthwise. Place zucchini in a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with Olive Oil. Sprinkle with S + P and grill for a few minutes on each side. Be careful not to overcook. They should be tender but firm, not limp and mushy.
Healthy Zucchini Muffins
This recipe comes together quickly and incorporates lots of zucchini. I also include carrots for an added boost. My recipe makes a lot of muffins. Place half in a ziploc freezer bag and save for another day!
Zucchini and pasta
A super easy summertime weeknight dinner. Essentially you saute the sliced zucchini, toss with some flavor, then top your favorite pasta. So Simple.
