Vegetable Zucchini Spread Recipe  Recipe

This Vegetable Zucchini Spread recipe has been my mom's favorite recipe for 20+ years. She loves to garden, so every year she makes this zucchini spread from the veggies she grows.

We were visiting parents the other day and as always mom wanted to feed Tim. Something about Ukrainian moms trying to feed their kids, every time they visit. Well, he was smitten by this dish, asked me to make it for him.

There are a lot of versions of Vegetable Zucchini Spreads out there, but this recipe has been a staple in our family for years. I hope you get a chance to try it!
