Who knew there were so many ways to enjoy zucchini?? It’s an incredibly versatile vegetable that can be used in both sweet and savory recipes, or as a side on its own!
Saute it, , shred it, bake it, or zoodle it, there is no shortage of ways to eat this inexpensive, yet nutritious, veggie.
Side note…did you know! Zucchini is actually NOT a vegetable? Yep, it’s officially categorized as a fruit because it contains seeds on the inside. Eggplants, Tomatoes and Bell Peppers are also officially fruits. Feel free to take a moment before moving on…
Of course, we’ll still call it a vegetable going forward, because fruit just sounds wrong, lol
Zucchini has a mild taste and easily takes on the characteristics and flavorings of how it’s cooked. And if your kids are adverse to veggies, it’s an easy one to “hide” in other foods. I used to make hidden-veggie meatballs for my son when he was a toddler and shredded zucchini was always the main veggie that I hid.
His mind was blown once he was older and I confessed what was in those meatballs that he loved so much!
Now, I don’t know about you, but I tend to get into a rut with how I made certain foods. I know that may seem weird coming from a food blogger, but our day-to-day eating is really pretty basic.
But I do enjoy playing around with new and interesting recipes for a normally common food, such as zucchini.
