Zucchini Recipes

Zucchinis come from the squash family, and they are usually yellow or green. The taste of zucchini depends on its variety, growing conditions, and preparation methods.

Paleo Zucchini Recipes are great for those who love to eat healthily. These recipes are simple, quick, and nutritious.

There are various ways to prepare them such as baking, grilling, steaming, frying, etc.

1. Zucchini Beef Skillet (Paleo)

This recipe is our favorite thing in the world. It’s simple, it takes less than fifteen minutes to make, and you can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, whatever — it doesn’t matter because it tastes amazing.

This recipe is paleo, vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, soy-free, low-carb, ketogenic, high-fat, high protein, and full of flavor.

This zucchini beef skillet is one of those meals that takes less than half an hour to prepare, and it tastes like something out of a restaurant.

If you love Mexican food, you’ll definitely enjoy this recipe. You can serve it over rice or pasta, or even eat it straight up as tacos.

2. Chicken with Creamy Mushroom Sauce Recipe (Paleo, Dairy-Free)

We love making chicken dishes because it’s easy and versatile. This recipe is quick and simple; you just throw everything into one pot and let it simmer away while you do something else.

We like serving this with pasta, rice, or even couscous. You could use frozen veggies here too — try peas, corn, or carrots.

3. 5-Minute Zucchini Avocado Dip (vegan, Paleo)

This recipe is our favorite way to make hummus. We love it because it takes less time and there are no beans.

This makes it easy to eat healthy without feeling like you are missing out. You don’t even miss the chickpeas!

This raw avocado & zucchini hummus recipe is gluten-free, vegan, and dairy free. This healthy dip is perfect for snack time, and it makes a great appetizer too!

You can use whatever veggies you like best, just make sure they are cut into bite-size pieces. Serve with carrot sticks, celery sticks, cucumber slices, bell pepper strips, etc.

4. Paleo Moroccan Spaghetti Meatballs

This is one of those recipes where you make something perfect, and then you realize how much people love it. 

The key here is the combination of the flavors. If you put too many ingredients together, it might taste weird.

But if you use different spices, you end up with a completely different flavor profile.

For example, we added ground almonds to give the meatballs a little extra protein, and then we added grated carrots to add sweetness and color. We also threw in some zucchini noodles.

5. Pesto Shrimp Bake with Squash and Tomatoes

This recipe is inspired by our love of seafood and pasta dishes. We wanted something light and healthy, but still satisfying enough to make us want seconds.

This recipe combines some of our favorite ingredients — zucchini, basil, tomatoes, and garlic — into one delicious meal.

The squash adds a nice texture contrast to the pasta, while the pesto brings it together.

You could use any type of pasta you like here; just keep in mind that the smaller the shape, the quicker it cooks.

This version uses squash and tomatoes instead of traditional basil pesto, making it perfect for summer entertaining (see also ‘15 Awesome Summer Paleo Recipes For Paleo Lovers‘).

6. Paleo Zucchini Bread Muffins (GAPS, Nut-Free)

Muffins are one of those things you either love or hate. You know what we mean…those muffins that come out of the oven smelling like heaven and taste like cardboard.

But, if you’re looking for something different, here’s a paleo zucchini bread muffin recipe that won’t make you want to gag.

These muffins are gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free, and contain no nuts.

They are packed full of fiber, protein, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. So, go ahead and try it out…you’ll never look back!

7. Steak Zucchini Boats

If you’re looking for something different to do with zucchini this summer, try out these steak zucchini boats. They’re easy to make and require no special equipment.

9. Zucchini Thoran (Indian Stir-Fry)

This recipe is inspired by our love of Indian food. We use curry leaves because they are so fragrant and delicious.

They add a wonderful flavor and aroma to dishes. You can find curry leaves in most grocery stores and Asian markets (see also ‘15 Awesome Asian Paleo Recipes For Paleo Lovers‘).

We love how it tastes like summer and the flavor combination is just delicious. This dish is perfect for entertaining since it is easy to make ahead of time and requires very few ingredients.

10. Oven Baked Zucchini Fritters

These zucchini fritters are baked in the oven, rather than deep-fried, making them healthier than most traditional recipes. They’re easy enough to make ahead of time, too.

These zucchini fritters are baked and stuffed with cheese and herbs. They taste great hot out of the oven or cold the next day. You could even make some up ahead of time and freeze them.

Just pop them into the oven for about 10 minutes to warm them up. These are sure to become a favorite around your house.

11. Kung Pao Chicken Zucchini Noodles

This recipe is easy enough to make even without having a full kitchen. You don’t have to go out and buy anything special, just use what you already have in your pantry.

This dish is perfect for those days when you want something delicious and healthy but you don’t feel like making much effort.

The chicken marinates overnight in a mixture of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, garlic powder, ginger, crushed red pepper flakes, black pepper, and salt.

12. Zucchini Cheese (AIP, SCD)

This cheese is super easy to make, and it tastes great! You don’t even need to cook the zucchini – just grate it into a bowl and mix in some salt and pepper.

Then you add cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Mix well and store in the fridge.

This is a super easy way to make it. Just chop up some zucchini into small pieces, toss it with salt, let sit overnight, drain off excess water, add cream cheese and Parmesan cheese, mix well, and you are done!

13. Zucchini Noodle Spaghetti Bolognese

This recipe uses zucchini noodles, which are simply spiralized zucchini. You could use regular pasta too, but we think the texture of the zucchini noodles makes it really special.

This dish is packed full of vegetables and protein, making it perfect for lunch or dinner.

And even though it sounds like a lot of work, you don’t need much prep time because everything cooks together quickly.

14. Cold Sesame Noodles with Shredded Chicken

This recipe is inspired by our love of umami flavors. We discovered it while researching how to make a delicious cold noodle dish.

This one uses shredded chicken and a simple marinade of soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, garlic, and sugar.

To round out the flavor profile, we add some crushed red pepper flakes and a little sesame oil.

15. 15-Minute Cowboy Butter Chicken Recipe with Zucchini Noodles

Zucchini noodles are one of our favorite dishes because they’re easy to make and delicious. They’re also healthy and low in calories and fat. 

But we always feel like there’s something missing when we eat them. So we came up with this recipe to add some flavor and give them a little kick.

The secret ingredient is spicy Indian curry powder. If you don’t have access to it, you can use regular yellow curry powder. Just keep in mind that the spice level will increase slightly.
