How Do You Cut Zucchini For Soup?

I love these tips from cutco for how to cut zucchini.  Using a 7-5/8″ Petite Chef knife, trim off the stem end of the zucchini. Using a tunnel grip, cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Lay the halves flat on the cutting board and slice into crescents of desired thickness.

Try the tips and adjust as needed.  Do you have a good knife set?  Check out these knife sets for the best help with cutting zucchini or any veggies.  Also check out my article for other great knife sets.

Should I remove seeds from zucchini before cooking?

This is probably not necessary because with a small zucchini the seeds are tender and cook up well.

How long do zucchini last in the fridge?

Cut zucchini in the freezer can last up to three months and whole zucchini in the fridge can last up to 1 week.
