We’re in the midst of summer and I’ve seen so many people looking for recipe ideas for their bounty of zucchini. This list is filled of some INCREDIBLE vegan dishes that offer creative and delicious ways to utilize a summer staple.
Now, your mind may be going straight to zoodles and zucchini bread. But this comprehensive list is here to show you the incredible variety of dishes possible with zucchini! I broke it down into sections to help y’all out: breakfast, entrees, lighter fare + sides, and sweet treats. Covers all the bases wouldn’t you say?
And of course, there are a ton of allergy-friendly recipes, sans gluten, soy, nuts, etc. So if you’re sensitive to any of those, there are definitely options here for you. 🙂 Have you made something awesome with zucchini that’s not on the list? Let me know in the comments!
While zucchini is incredibly versatile, sometimes you just need a little inspiration to kick off a great meal using it. The middle of summer is when most gardens are overflowing with this veggie (botanically a fruit), so here are many of the Best Vegan Zucchini Recipes out there! In this list I have breakfast through dinner and even dessert options for y'all.
