  • Everybody has that one neighbor. You know the one. At some point in the summer they will bring over a bushel of zucchini that they can’t eat and dump them at your doorstep.The truth is that we should all be so lucky to have a neighbor like that because zucchini is so versatile! You can do so much more than just grate it up and make zucchini bread out of it.This recipe is a quick and delicious (and low-ish carb) way to use a bunch of leftover zucchini. While you could use any zucchini, medium-sized ones work best for this recipe.Happy zucchini season, everybody!
