Zucchini Recipes

As the Zucchini season is approaching us, more and more, we turn to the internet to find new never tried recipes. Zucchinis are everywhere and if we do have a garden, you know you need to use them as soon as possible as they grow all in one go. 

The best recipe if you have tons of zucchinis are our Keto Zucchini Chips Dehydrated as well as Smoked Paprika Zucchini Chips. You can make them in a dehydrator or the oven and I promise you, they are gone in seconds. 

And that is even if your kids or husband refuses to eat zucchinis otherwise. They are extra crispy and flavored with your favorite seasonings, perfect as a keto snack for your Party or just a TV night. 

Keto Zucchini Recipes 

Zucchinis are one of the most popular vegetables in our Keto Lifestyle. 

And no wonder why that is.

They serve as a perfect dinner option when you fill them with our favorites, such as bacon and cheese and Zucchini Boats are ready. 

Or just in case you have some leftover Keto Bread that is not as fresh as you would like to.

Never throw old Keto Bread away.

I always state that. 

From either a failed Low Carb bread attempt or Keto Farmers Bread leftovers, you can make perfect Keto Breadcrumbs and easy Baked Low Carb Zucchinis

Are Zucchinis Keto Friendly?

Zucchini also called a Summer Squash by some, is the top keto vegetable you can have. 

Filled with potassium, Vitamin C, and folate, zucchini has very few calories and is just the right base for so many Keto or Low Carb Recipes. 

Their minimal or almost nonexistent Carb intake and mild taste make them perfect not only for savory food but various deserts you will not even know vegetable of some sort is involved. 

There is no better vegetable than a Low Carb Zucchini.

What Keto Food can you make with Zucchini?

As some might wonder what to do with Zucchini, here are a few quick and easy tips.

Zucchini Ideas

You can make so much with Zucchinis. You can use them instead of pasta, or as Spaghetti. Probably you all know the name Zoodles. That is exactly what spiralized Zucchinis are. 

Additionally to Zoodles, they are just perfect as Crispy Chips, Fritters or Keto Fries.

Add them into your casserole, slice them thinly, and use them instead of lasagna.

Your next Party or a Family Gathering will be a breeze to prepare.

Keto Bolognese Sauce

Our Bolognese Sauce, which I have posted just last week has been my obsession for the last few weeks. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have realized, that I do everything much earlier and it takes a while until it gets into the Blog for you. 

I mean, this Ground beef recipe is something I have been dreaming of, I eat it just on its own and went wild with ideas about what I can use it with additionally to our Keto Spaghetti or Egg Noodles

Keto Zucchini Appetiser

As I already have Zucchini Boats on the blog, I wanted to take it even further. 

I wanted a recipe where Bolognese and Zucchinis can be combined. 

And the idea of stuffed Zucchini with meat came in. 

Perfect Appetizer, Party Snack, Meal Prep, Starter, or a whole meal. Your pick. Those Zucchini Cups will be on the top of the list for sure.

I am sure you can even grill those Keto Stuffed Zucchini Mini Bites.

Fourth Step: Cut and Fill Fresh Zucchini

Wash your zucchini and cut the ends. Using a sharp knife, cut each zucchini into approximately 2 inches or 5 cm in length. 

As you see on the video, cut the first one and using that piece to measure and cut all others to get the same length. 

Using either a small spoon or a scoop as I have used, make a small hole in the middle of zucchini to have them shaped into a cup-like mini bite. 

Place them into the casserole dish, which is oven safe, or a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. 

Fill each of the zucchini cups with bolognese sauce and top it up with grated cheese of your choice. I have used parmesan cheese,

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Can you use Air Fryer to bake Zucchini Mini Bites?

Of course, if you do prefer Air Fryer, use the same steps and place them into the Air Fryer basket to bake.

Can you eat Zucchini Mini Bites cold?

Once the stuffed zucchini mini bites are baked, you can either serve them immediately or use them as a cold appetizer for your Brunch or any Party you are planning to. 

How do you store Stuffed Zucchini Mini Bites?

Storing those zucchini cups in the refrigerator for approximately 2-3 days is the best idea. 

Can you freeze Stuffed Zucchini Mini Bites?

Although I would suggest consuming them immediately or stored in the fridge, you still can freeze them.

You just have to bear in mind, that zucchinis contain lots of water and they might become soft after they thaw. 

But placing them into the oven for few minutes should bring the freshness back up.
