If you ask me, late July and early August are synonymous with one thing: zucchini overload! For the past few weeks I have been up to my ears in zucchini, summer squash and more…and I know I am not alone. Fortunately, this nutritious vegetable is both versatile and nutrient dense. Whether you grill them, stuff them, or shred them and eat them raw, we have you covered.
P.S. The Chocolate Cashew Butter Zucchini Muffins may be the best thing I have ever baked!
