If you were inspired by last week’s post about eating seasonally and are wanting to put it into practice more often in your own life, then you’ve come to the right place.
While there are loads of amazing fruits and veggies in season in August, zucchini might just be my favorite. And, let’s be honest, they’re totally having a moment right now.
Zucchini is one of those vegetables that can be featured as the star of the show or take a backseat and provide some support to the main dish. No matter how you choose to use this summer squash, its health benefits (we’re talking vitamin C, magnesium, and its anti-inflammatory effect) and its neutral flavor make it a fantastic vegetable to incorporate into your cooking.
So, crack open that hummus and dip in some zucchini circles, opt for zoodles instead of pasta, or make your mom’s famous zucchini bread. Scroll on for some of the tastiest zucchini recipes we’ll be making all month long.
