Farmers Market Bounty - Zucchini

This past weekend at the farmers market I went over load on Zucchini’s!  

My original idea was to get enough zucchini to make this Zucchini and Black Bean Skillet!  
I have made it before and it is easy, delicious and comes together in minutes!  Plus the leftovers are great to take for lunch!  However with my abundance of zucchinis I decided I needed to go on a hunt for more recipes where I could incorporate this wonderful vegetable!  Here is what I have decided!

1-      Vegetable Packed Zucchini boats! 

I made these for dinner on Monday and they were absolutely delicious!  I am all about stuffed vegetables for dinner (there are about a million stuffed pepper recipes on the blog) so I was happy when these stuffed zucchinis turned out so well!  I didn't follow this recipe to a "T" in fact my stuffed zucchini came out more mexican style!  I used leftover refried beans, peppers, onions, tomatoes and salsa to give my zucchini boats kick!  Here are a few other tasty stuffed zucchini recipes I found around the Web!

2-      Zucchini Muffins

This is one of my favorite quick breads it always reminds me of my child hood!  And this Cooking Light recipe always turns out delicious.  I blogged about these muffins a while ago here and I highly recommend making them for either a quick breakfast on the go or a quick snack! 

And last but not least –only because I am obsessed with Cupcakes! 
Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes from Taste of Home! 

Also check out this Chocolate Zucchini cake from Cooking Light.


What are your favorite zucchini recipes?
Do you ever go overboard on produce at the farmers market?

  1. I love plain zucchini bread. I am also a fan of it grilled as a veggie side dish. Those chocolate muffins look pretty amazing though.
