Original post… Zucchini is one of the most versatile vegetables and in honor of National Zucchini Day, we compiled all our favorite ways to enjoy it here in this post.

All these recipes are gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan and cover everything from zucchini bread and muffins to zoodles and pasta to fries and chips!

Let’s start with baked goods.

We love baking with veggies because especially with gluten-free baking, it helps add moisture and yields the best texture for quick breads and muffins.

And finally, let’s move on to dinners.

Zoodles (or zucchini noodles) are the obvious, easy dinner and of course, pasta!

Caprese Zoodles with Basil Pesto: Roasted tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, black olives & zucchini noodles tossed in Basil Pesto — an easy and fresh tasting Summer dish!

With this recipe I tend to enjoy the zoodles not cooked but other times I love to saute them quickly with some olive oil, garlic and lemon juice and serve them with other roasted veggies and tahini sauce…. so good!

Here’s my favorite Warm Garlicky Lemon Zoodles with roasted veggies and tahini sauce.
