All the Ways to Love Zucchini Bread

Anyone with a garden (or a neighbor with a garden!) knows that you need to get creative when zucchini season is in full swing; the last thing you want to do is get tired of the veggie and let it go to waste. Our best zucchini recipes can help — you can bake up a zucchini gratin, whip up a zoodle dish, simply saute the veggie and more. You can even freeze zucchini to be used in muffins and soups later on. But one of our favorite things to make with zucchini is bread, of course. It's easy to make and always delicious. Shred, dump and stir: This go-to zucchini bread is super simple. For an easy spin, stir in your favorite chopped nuts or a little grated orange zest.
