This round up of 55 favorite zucchini recipes will keep you healthy and happy through the rest of summer’s bountiful harvest and all through the year.

55 Healthy Zucchini Recipes | foodiecrush.com

During these final dog days of summer, there’s not much better than healthful eats packed with summer produce, unless of course you’re the lucky one who gets to lounge on a floatie all day at the pool with a summer sipper in hand. But even then, a girl’s gotta eat!

Late summer’s bounty of fresh summer veggies and fruits are one of the bright spots during these last steamy days—and sheesh, they’ve been STEAMY!

If you’ve been all Mary, Mary Quite Contrary and have a garden that continues to grow, you’re likely up to your ears in zucchini and sneaking it into meals in every which way you can. It’s wiggled its way into soups and galettes, bowls of zoodles and loaves of zucchini bread handed off to friends and neighbors.

From appetizers and mains, to sides and salads, there are thousands of ways to enjoy this versatile green veggie beyond my favorite 5-minute super simple zucchini sauté. We’ve narrowed down our list to these favorite 55 recipes shown off in all their glory below.

Let’s get squashed, shall we?
