Recipe Ideas:

  1. 🥗 Grilled Baby Zucchini Salad: Halve the baby zucchinis lengthwise and toss them with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Grill until tender and slightly charred. Arrange them on a bed of mixed greens, drizzle with balsamic glaze, and sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese and toasted pine nuts for a refreshing salad.

  2. 🍝 Baby Zucchini Pasta Primavera: Slice the baby zucchinis into thin rounds. Sauté them with garlic, cherry tomatoes, and fresh herbs in olive oil until tender. Toss with cooked pasta and a splash of pasta water. Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice, grated Parmesan cheese, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes.

  3. 🥘 Stuffed Baby Zucchini Boats: Cut the tops off the baby zucchinis and scoop out the centers to create boats. Fill them with a mixture of cooked quinoa, diced bell peppers, onions, and feta cheese. Bake until the zucchinis are tender and the filling is heated through. Serve garnished with chopped parsley.

  4. 🍲 Baby Zucchini Soup: Sauté diced onions, celery, and garlic in olive oil until softened. Add sliced baby zucchinis and vegetable broth. Simmer until the zucchinis are very tender. Blend until smooth, then stir in a splash of heavy cream. Season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg. Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream and fresh chives.

  5. 🍢 Grilled Baby Zucchini Skewers: Thread baby zucchinis onto skewers alternating with cherry tomatoes and cubes of halloumi cheese. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with dried oregano.
