10 Recipes That Use Summer Squash To Make Your Favorite Meals Low-Carb

If you’re trying to add more seasonal produce to your meals, these summer squash recipes are a great place to start. While traditionally served as a side, recently summer squash has taken center stage. It can be used as a low-carb substitute for starchy foods like pasta or rice, so it’s no wonder summer squash is literally having its moment in the sun. 

While zucchini is arguably the most famous summer squash, there are plenty of other varieties, including yellow crookneck, yellow straightneck, and scallop squash that can be used interchangeably in most recipes. So if a dish calls for yellow summer squash and you only have zucchini, no problem. Whip out a veggie cutter like Brieftons 5-Blade Spiralizer ($21.99, Amazon) for easy slicing, and take advantage of these delicious recipes while you can, because you’ll soon wish you could make them all year round!
