Oh, zucchini — it's hard to explain our feelings about this summer vegetable. We cheer when it arrives, but then all too quickly it overwhelms us. How do you keep up with the vegetable that just never seems to stop giving? The good news is that it's one of the most versatile veggies out there, so you've got loads of options when looking for ways to keep your zucchini consumption exciting. Here are 20 ways to enjoy the summer standby.

From the Oven and the Grill

If you're willing to turn your oven on in the summer, you'll be rewarded with cheesy casserole and a buttery galette. Otherwise, fire up the grill and make beef-stuffed zucchini boats.

Stovetop and Slow Cooker

Turn that zucchini into crispy fritters, pile it into tortillas for Taco Tuesday, or toss it into the slow cooker with other summer veggies and leave it be until dinner calls.

Noodles and Zoodles

Depending on its mood, zucchini likes to play the role of accompaniment to pasta and the pasta itself — and it's quite successful at both.

Dinner-Worthy Salads

Zucchini can most definitely be transformed into a hearty, wholesome dinner salad if you amp up its flavor and bring protein to the party.
