One of my all-time favorite appetizers is Fried Zucchini Blossoms. If you haven’t had them, seek them out at your favorite restaurants, or try your hand at my easy-to-make recipe. You will not be disappointed with these delicate summer blossoms.
When snack time rolls around, break out Tortilla-Crusted Zucchini Fries with Spicy Red Pepper Dip. This tasty snack is easy to put together and delivers a little crunch and a little zing.
What do you do with day-old bread? Save it to make a savory strata. Zucchini, Mushroom, and Thyme Strata is a filling and flavorful dish that is perfect for brunch or dinner (I even like it cold, straight out of the fridge for breakfast).
Have you had your fill of zucchini and tomatoes yet? Me neither. Summer, even though it’s wrapping up, is all about zucchini and tomatoes. Take advantage of what summer has left and try this recipe for Stuffed Zucchini with Herbed Orzo, Almonds, and Fresh Tomato Sauce.
This recipe for Zucchini Pasta with Fava Beans and Harissa Sauce is a spectacularly fresh summer dish. I love that there is limited stove-top time involved to make it, and that it combines two seasonal goodies – zucchini and fava beans – with a spicy red sauce.
