Spicy Sichuan Pork & Zucchini Noodles recipe here.
I imagined I was going to begin this post with a story about how my garden is overflowing with zucchini.
The sad truth is, my veggie patch this Summer is a long way from abundant. There has been some zucchini. And enough cherry tomatoes for a couple of salads.
But that’s about it.
Luckily I’ve been getting lots of delicious zucchini from the farmers market. So I haven’t been missing out on any of my favourite zucchini treats.
It’s such a versatile vegetable the old ‘zuc’.
From fritters to salads to noodle soups to cake(!). It’s not hard to see why it’s one of my favourite Low Carb vegetables.
16 Tasty Ideas for Zucchini
1. Crispy Zucchini Fritters
I made these little morsels of goodness for family brunch last weekend. Normally I serve them with natural yoghurt but I had some feta that needed using up so made a smashed feta cream. Soo salty, soo good!
2. Spicy Sichuan Pork & Zucchini Noodles
Essentially an Asian take on Spaghetti Bolognese made healthier with spiralized zucchini instead of wheat based noodles.
3. Melt-in-the-Mouth Savoury Cheesecake
A favourite from last Summer. Equally good as a lazy Sunday brunch as it is for a light dinner.
4. Lebanese Roast Ratatouille with Hummus
Love this spicy twist on the classic vegetable combo of zucchini and eggplant.
5. Almond & Zucchini
Basically slow cook the zucchini until it’s super soft and incredibly flavoursome then serve with mint for freshness and almonds for crunch.
6. Zucchini Laksa
The king of noodle soups!
7. Super Moist Zucchini & Tuna Salad
Just 3 ingredients and super delicious. Love this for quick Summer lunches.
8. Zucchini with Butter Beans + Goats Curd
Inspired by an incredible lunch at St John Bread & Wine on our last trip to London. If you haven’t been definitely add it to your list and in the mean time make this dish!
9. Zucchini Mac & Cheese
A lighter, fresher touch for the old family fave.
10. Spanish Meatballs with Zucchini Noodles
Love giving meatballs a new lease of life with some smoky paprika and creamy ricotta.
11. Buttery Zucchini with Ground Beef
Dinner doesn’t get much more simple than this. One of my personal faves!
12. Asian Beef with Zucchini Noodles
A quick steak dinner with a twist.
13. Green Spaghetti + Meatballs
More meatball love with pesto and zucchini noodles.
14. Zucchini Noodle & Pesto Salad
Pesto in salad dressing is one of my not-so-secret weapons. Looks pretty, tastes even better.
16. Moist Chocolate & Zucchini Cake
One of the easiest ways to encourage small boys to actually eat and enjoy zucchini! Good for grown-ups too.
