Zucchini is a veggie that is always in my fridge. I use it so much in my recipes and we eat them a LOT. And because I always have zucchini on hand and it’s so versatile I have developed quite a few zucchini recipes. You can eat it raw or cooked and they’re fantastic in savoury or sweet dishes and I can get it all year round at a reasonable price. So I thought I would bring together all my simple zucchini recipes in the one place.
But before I share lots of simple (and not to mention delicious) zucchini recipes your kids will love, let’s talk about some of the nutritional benefits.
Nutritional Benefits of Zucchini
Zucchini (or courgette) are a great source of fibre (source: Better Health Channel) and vitamins A, C and K. It also is a good source of potassium and magnesium and it is high in antioxidants. There is also some evidence that zucchini can support healthy digestion and lower the risk of heart disease (source: Healthline). Not bad right?
So not only is it good for you, it tastes great too! And here are some simple zucchini recipes that you and your family will love!
