zuchinni and squash

Hey everyone! I have yellow squash (small ones) and a huge zuchinni, and was wondering if you eat them raw or what you do with them? that’s probably a dumb question, but i’ve only ever cooked them, so any ideas would be helpful. Has anyone every put them in smoothies? thanks in advance christina


  • Hi Love4Life, I eat zucchini and squash raw all the time. It’s also great to cut up and put in salads. I’ve juiced them. And also blended them. There is a great cream of zucchini soup recipe (one of Jennifer Cornbleet’s) at: http://www.rawfreedomcommunity.info/forum/showt… and another great spinach soup recipe (I think this one is courtesy of Carmella) with zucchini in it at: http://www.rawfreedomcommunity.info/forum/showt…

  • There are 69 zucchini recipes on this site. Click on the Recipes tab. Then enter zucchini in the search box. Happy hunting . . . and eating.

  • Hi Love4Life,
    I copied and pasted what I wrote from another forum below as it fits the topic….
    “I would just like to emphasize how versatile zucchini’s are – you can make:
    zucchini pasta — in sooooo many ways!
    zucchini hummus (there is an excellent recipe on this site)
    zucchini ‘crackers’ or zucchini ‘bread’ using a dehydrator
    stuffed zucchini with other veggies or one of the great nut or seed cheese recipes on goneraw. etc… etc… etc…
    Gee, can you tell it’s one of my favorite vegetables? grin :)
    Best wishes with your gone raw experiences!”

  • I eat them both raw all the time. Im hooked actually. Its not summer without them!! I toss yellow squash with a cheese from this site and it tastes like raw mac n cheese. YUM. Zucchini is great spiralized and mixed with any raw pasta sauce. drool These are my fav raw recipes.

  • Hi, I am overflowing with squashes right now! If you look at my profile I’ve posted a couple of recipes that I really like. I just finished a smoothie made with zuccini juice ice cubes, it doesn’t change the flavor or color.
