Do you need keto recipes to use up squash? I’ve got the perfect low carb squash recipe list for you! Let’s talk squash!

It’s that time of year when gardens are bursting with fresh produce. Sometimes, a squash plant goes rogue and becomes so prolific, it’s nigh unstoppable.

You’re either giving away squash by the armful or getting tricked into taking armfuls of it by Aunt Greenthumb.

(Also, I tried to keep pumpkins off this list, since they’re such a popular squash and the other squash varieties are harder to find recipes for, but scroll down to the bottom for a separate list of keto pumpkin recipes!)

Oh yes! That's right! FINALLY, a list of keto squash recipes that DON'T include pumpkin! Now you know what do do with all that squash growing like crazy in your garden! Looknig for keto yellow squash recipes? Keto butternut squash recipes? Keto zucchini recipes? They're all here! keenforketo.com | low carb squash recipe | keto squash dinner

Ways to Get Rid of Squash: The Funny and Creative

I’ve heard of some creative and hilarious ways to get rid of overly abundant squash.

At one church we used to attend, the garden aficionado ladies kept a large “bountiful basket” in the lobby of the church so people could either give away extras or take extra produce.

It. was. awesome!!

I’ve also heard some pretty hilarious stories of people doorbell ditching and leaving piles of squash on doorsteps.

Or a little more invasive, to randomly open up strangers’ car doors, toss in a squash, and run. (Can you just picture that mischievous friend of yours doing this? Haha!)

What’s your funny or creative way to get rid of extra squash?

I’d love to know in the comments below this post! Seriously, these are my kind of stories, LOL.

Looking for Keto Dinner Recipe Ideas?

Is Squash Allowed on Keto?

The question of the hour is: Can you eat squash on the keto diet?

The answer is yes! Squash is ok on the keto diet!

As with any vegetable that’s a bit higher in carbs, you’ll just need to watch your carbs.

The good news is that squash has enough fiber to bring your carb count down a lot if you’re counting net carbs (I usually do).

As you’ll see below in the next section, some squash varieties are actually quite low in carbohydrates!

So can you have squash on keto? Yes! Enjoy these ketogenic squash recipes!

  • Zucchini squash: 3 g
