Isn’t it great to see courgettes back in season? Also known as Zucchini in Italy these were a popular vegetable in the Mediterranean region hundreds of years before they made their way into western cuisine.
Courgettes are available in green and yellow skinned varieties and are a good source of Vitamin C, they also contain folate, potassium and dietary fibre but are low in calories and sodium.
Courgettes are very versatile being great raw in salads or grated on top of baked fish. They can also be hollowed out and stuffed with savoury breadcrumbs and their yellow flowers can be stuffed with ricotta cheese and herbs and baked.
If not picked courgettes will grow into larger marrows. These too are useful if peeled, hollowed out and filled with mince or vegetable stuffing and baked either coated in breadcrumbs or covered with tomato purée and baked until just cooked. Delicious!
