From Garden to Table: Recipes from Your Backyard


Zucchini

Give your zucchini plenty of space to spread out and tons of sunlight and you just might end up with more of these tasty green squashes than you know what to do with – but that’s not necessarily a bad thing when this summer squash has so many uses. Zucchinis have a mild flavor that means you can add them to any veggie-based dish (like pasta or soup) but they can also stand on their own when stuffed, sautéed, or roasted. They’re even a great base for cakes, cookies, and other baked goods.

Try them in: Zucchini Cakes; Emeril’s Green Beans and Zucchini with Garlic; Zucchini Bread; Lemon-Zucchini Cornmeal Cookies.
