This is the time of year when our garden starts overflowing with summer squash. We have 5 kids, so it’s not like we can’t put away a lot of food, but normally after a few weeks everyone is starting to get tired of steamed zucchini as a side. So I started hunting for some ways to mix it up so I can keep using up all that free squash!
I was amazed at some of the creative recipes I found—from main dishes to side dishes to a seriously amazing looking triple chocolate zucchini bread. I hope you find something in this list that you love!
