We’re at the crossroads of late summer and early fall, where the last of the summer garden bounty meets cooler weather that calls for warm soups and comfort foods. Enter Zucchini Cornbread.
I am still using zucchini from my garden…and I will be for months to come. I got a little carried away this year in the garden. Now my freezer is full of frozen garden bounty, including shredded zucchini, so I can make this recipe all year. If you are still looking for ways to use up zucchini, or maybe your friend or neighbor is trying to get rid of some, give this a try! It’s a perfect pairing for late summer and early autumn soups, stews, or chilis.
The zucchini adds confetti-like flecks of green to the bright yellow cornbread. And you can feel good about the extra boost of fiber and nutrients you added to this savory side dish!
