Top Ten Zucchini Recipes

repost from Monday April 4th

So this week's obsession is zucchini. Probably because summer is here and I love vegetable stands and great prices in the season veggies...or maybe just because I found a lot of zucchini recipes this week that are calling my name. Either way, here are ten mouth watering recipes that all center around that famous herbaceous plant.
1. Summer Garden Pasta Zucchini turns pasta into a side dish extraordinaire!
2. Sweet Potato Zucchini Bites Healthy + yummy + sweet = AMAZING!
3. Zucchini Tomato Pie Where has this summer staple been all my life? I'll certainly be "tweaking" this recipe soon--maybe adding some chopped ham?
4.  Zucchini-Olive Couscous This zucchini recipe has the added bonus of being something my family will actually eat without having to be coerced! They will eat anything with green olives!
5. Zucchini, Mushroom, and Ricotta Salad Okay, so the fam wouldn't touch this one, but yum, does it sound good to me!! Maybe I'll have to have a girlfriend over as an excuse to make it. : )
6. Zucchini Grinders Part veggie lasagna, part sandwich and all yummy!
7. Apple Zucchini Squares These are pure genius! And you've gotta go read the first comment in which the blogger's hubby gives them a five star rating. (and I think that's pretty sweet!)
8. Squash and Zucchini Casserole Plain and simple gets my vote every time!
9. Picnic Zucchini Bean Salad Beans=protein, so this one could be a whole meal, don't you think?
10. Chocolate Zucchini Cake What better way to end a list of ten on Of Such is the Kingdom than a chocolate cake?
See Menu Plan Monday, Tasty Tuesdays and all the other great blogs I'm linking up to here.


  1. I absolutely love Zucchini - but no-one else in my house does! All I can persuade them to eat is a nice zucchini slice with bacon in it!
    This selection of recipes looks yummy!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!

  4. Olivia, your zucchini post may just be an answers to my prayers. I pared down to 2 zucchini plants in my garden this year, but they decided to make up for the other 4 I chose not to plant! I have so much zucchini right now. They are beautiful and healthy and I want to use up every single one (the one's I don't give away of course). Thanks for this great post... it is like a mini zucchini cook book!
