You Can’t Have Too Many Zucchini Recipes!
I absolutely love zucchini. I can’t seem to grow it in my garden to save my life but thankfully it is incredibly abundant during the summer farmer’s markets. My children and husband, however, dislike zucchini immensely.
It drives me NUTS and I am constantly trying to find ways to sneak zucchini into my meals without a huge amount of complaining. Who doesn’t like zucchini, right? Anyhow, I make a crab puff using pie crust and decided to see if I could create a zucchini puff instead.
I made a few variations but my husband absolutely loved these so I thought I would share. You can probably use wonton wrappers or puff pastry in this recipe as well. I will admit, I used a store bought pie crust because honestly I DETEST rolling things out but if you want you can make your pie crust from scratch to wrap these in if you are feeling ambitious.

Those look really good. Always looking for meatless meals!
I agree, my family is insane 🙂 I have tried for years to get zucchini to be palatable and all I hear are complaints usually. At least the hubby liked this one!
Mmm, pinned this recipe; looks de-lish!
