4 Ways to Make Kids Excited About Zucchini

Zucchini Chocolate Chip CookiesThis time of year, nothing is easier to find (and afford) than zucchini. Finding ways to get the good stuff into your kids, however, can be more elusive. I’ve tried all sorts of things (some hits, many misses) and these are the most popular zucchini dishes according to our three kids:

  • Stovetop Pork and Rice with Zucchini: If you can make rice, you can make this — and your kids will swoon. Just add mustard, cooked cubes of pork and chicken broth to plain brown rice. Throw the zucchini in for the last few minutes. Tada!

  • Sauteed Zucchini: When zucchini and olive oil meet in a pan, the result can be simple and oh so satisfying, even to those who aren’t into veggies — usually.
  • Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies: Reduce sugar to half a cup of brown sugar and replace the rest with honey. Use applesauce for half the butter and, of course, add 1 cup shredded fresh zucchini.
