9 Must-Try Recipes for National Zucchini Day

Zucchini is a true multitasker when it comes to cooking and can be used in anything from ratatouille to breads (sweet and savory!), pastas, sandwiches, and more. Its mild flavor and tender texture can be completely transformed depending on the cooking method—grilled, baked, steamed, sautéed, or used raw.

There’s no better time to celebrate the versatile zucchini than on the celebratory National Zucchini Day. Keep reading for our favorite ways to use zucchini in all recipes, and let us know in the comments what we should try next.

Glazed Lemon Zucchini Bread

Zucchini bread is one of those baked goods we find ourselves making the most—there’s no tastier way to use up that lone zucchini rattling around the crisper. And it’s a low-fuss loaf you can throw together with ingredients you likely already have.

Zesty Jalapeño Pesto Pasta with Zucchini and Corn

There’s nothing we look forward to more than the first arrival of sweet, crunchy corn. One corn-centric dish we’ll be serving up all season is this filling pasta dish with another one of our favorite summer veggies: zucchini.

Bobby Flay’s Toasted Zucchini Pasta

One of Bobby Flay’s special, practically no-recipe-needed-at-all dishes takes advantage of late-season zucchini, a veggie you might often forget about in your crisper drawer. The mild squash becomes nutty, soft, and fragrant when given the attention it deserves.

Mushroom-Stuffed Zucchini Boats

When our farmers send us the big boys, we like to save those to make stuffed zucchini boats. They’re the perfect vessel.

Grilled Zucchini and Stone Fruit with Lemon-Yogurt Dressing

We couldn’t think of a better farewell to summer than this salad, which makes good use of summer squash and stone fruit by combining the two on the grill.

Zucchini Feta Bread

We make our zucchini bread with feta, so you can have it either savory or sweet. Toasted and served with ratatouille and Parmesan cheese, or battered, fried, and covered in maple syrup. In our professional opinion, you should have it both ways.

Grilled Zucchini with Lemony Garlic Tahini Sauce

Summer is the time that most of us are swimming in zucchini but lacking inspiration on what to do with them. This super-quick side dish solves that issue with absolutely delicious results.

Zucchini “Noodle” Veggie Lasagna

If you have any veggie skeptics in your life, this lasagna is sure to change their mind. It’s perfect for Meatless Monday, and great for impressing friends at your next dinner party along with a simple salad.

Zucchini Noodles with Toasted Sesame Dressing

The zucchini noodle, aka zoodle, is one of those foods that may have been created as a substitute for a beloved item (pasta), but has since taken on an entire life of its own.

I’m old no longer want to go to grocery store but I do not need a weekly amt.. sometimes I like fresh produce and would like your service.. I’m not always home and available for a delivery.. I need flexibility. Not sure if this will work for me. but Im wiilling to give it a try.. I’m on a fixed income and cant afford to donate if I don’t need the groceries Would just like a monthly order maybe?

Hi, Kay! Thank you for your interest in our service. By default, we’ll send you weekly curated boxes, but every week you’ll have the opportunity to customize, edit, or skip your order if you don’t need anything during your shopping window.

You’ll receive an email when it’s time to review your order, and you can customize from a range of seasonal produce and high-quality, sustainably-sourced groceries. If the items in your cart reach or maintain the $35 minimum, a box will be processed/charged and delivered to you.

However, if you do not need an order that week, you can skip it in advance from your customer account, and you are always welcome to switch to our a la carte plan if you prefer to opt-out of automated weekly orders. With this option, you’ll only receive an order if you actively build a box and reach the order minimum during your shopping window.

We hope this is helpful and that you will consider giving us a try sometime soon!

It was so easy that you work with the older customer she wants your order monthly I don’t want your order at all so could you please stop sending me boxes weekly just as the other woman is on a fix income so do l and l like to pick out my own food stuff myself. Your first box you veggies were part rotten. You charge my card with out my authorization now you sent me another box today 8-31-22 again without my permission. Your company is messing with my account please stop any future orders I don’t want thank you. If Misfit-market continue I would report you to the BBB and other stressful events may follow. You suppose to be assisting and making people life easier but you are stressing me out by interfering with my account and my fix income. I have try calling wrote to the company leave voice messages but it seams no one read or listen n to me , pleading to Misfit-market to stop delivering me food boxes I did not order and stop charging my card without my permission.
Thanking you in advance

Hi SherryAnn, oh no! We are concerned to hear that you feel this way and we’re so sorry if there was any confusion with how our service works.

Customers are given a shopping window to edit their grocery boxes. Your order can be edited any time throughout your shopping window and will be charged only if the items in your cart meet the $35 minimum and your shopping window ends.

You can read a little more about how our service works and find out what day you’ll be charged as it corresponds to your shopping window on your account page at

That said, we checked and we can confirm that our customer success team has since responded to your request on 9/1. If you did not see their response in your email inbox, please check your spam, junk, or “all mail” folders. Please don’t hesitate to follow up with them with any feedback or questions you may have. Our specialists are happy to help with this in any way they can. We appreciate your patience and understanding!
