Gluten-Free Zucchini and Summer Squash — Menu Plan August 22

By · Print This Post Print This Post

SummerVeggies1Summer Veggies are on our menus this month for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. Zucchini and Summer Squash are the featured vegetables this week. 

I thought we’d give gardening a try this summer. Along with a few other veggie plants, we planted a zucchini plant and a summer squash plant a little late in the season. We checked on them every now and then, but didn’t expect much.

We got a few small, yellow summer squash, but didn’t get any zucchini. Or, so I thought. Imagine my surprise when my daughter found in the garden a zucchini bigger than a large eggplant! It must have been hiding all summer. It’s so huge, I’m not even sure how best to cut and cook it. ha!

In case you have some zucchinis that got ignored and grew too big this summer, too… I did some looking online and found some good ideas for cooking those giant zucchinis.
