Reasons to cook & bake with zucchini

As you can probably guess, zucchini is one of my absolute fav veggies to cook and bake with because:

  • It adds a boost of fiber & vitamin C to any recipe
  • It can take on any flavors of spices you’re working with
  • It adds the perfect amount of moisture to every recipe, which means you likely won’t need extra oil or butter in the recipes!

Tips for baking with zucchini

  • Use the small side of your grater so that you get little shreds of zucchini.
  • Squeeze out your zucchini shreds as much as possible to get all of the excess liquid out.
  • Measure the shreds before you squeeze the moisture out.
  • Feel free to shred a bunch of zucchini and freeze it for later! Follow my tips and tricks here.
